HTML5 is cool. However, no matter how cool it is, it’s not magic. Technology teams must be concerned with the same development issues as with other languages: Managing applications, correcting defects and implementing enhancements. PreEmptive, providers of tools to harden, monitor and protect code from reverse-engineering applications, is providing teams with tools to make that easier.

Extending Application Intelligence

Sometimes software development is more of an art than an engineering endeavor. While creativity in development can be valuable, assuming which features stakeholders are using or the specific set of steps that are causing that hard-to-track-down error, is not the time for creating a reality. PreEmptive provides tools that allow application teams to know what is actually occurring with their software once it’s in the wild, instead of guessing or relying on unsubstantiated opinions.

In conjunction with Microsoft’s BUILD conference, PreEmptive announced that it has extended its application analytics solution, Runtime Intelligence, to support HTML5, JavaScript and native languages like C and C++. The enhancements add to the product’s existing analytics capabilities for .Net and Java. Using Runtime Intelligence, organizations can monitor software adoption, how users leverage the software and application quality across all the platforms -- including mobile -- where the application is employed. The latest enhancements to the platform will enable Runtime Intelligence users to collect and review a consistent set of analytics information for their application portfolio no matter what language is used for development.

Runtime Intelligence captures a number of application metrics,  such as:

  • Software adoption patterns
  • User behaviors and preferences
  • Exception reporting and software quality metrics
  • Operational impact

These can improve the ability of teams to identify issues and opportunities in the applications they release.

According to PreEmptive representatives,

Whether writing applications from scratch or refactoring existing applications to take advantage of cloud and mobile opportunities, Runtime Intelligence provides critical insight into reducing risk and increasing development return."
