ALAMEDA, Calif. – June 19, 2012 – Wind River®, a world leader in embedded and mobile software, today announced that it has been rated a ‘Transformational’ vendor in the voke 2012 Market Mover Array™ Report for Testing Platforms, the highest rating available in the report. voke defines transformational vendors as those that are changing the tone and direction of the market, and those that are challenging other vendors to innovate either in terms of technology or marketing acumen.

The report examines the current and future state of the software testing market and offers an analysis of the vendors in the space. Specifically, it highlights eight key factors that are driving innovation in the testing market, including mobility, the cloud, embedded software, development testing, infrastructure test optimization and lifecycle virtualization.

“The increased volume of software, greater complexity and security concerns, as well as shrinking test cycle times have all made automation a necessity in software testing,” said Theresa Lanowitz, founder of voke, inc. “Wind River is setting the tone in the market for the future of testing in device software.”

The analysis was based on Wind River’s embedded testing solutions for the entire testing lifecycle, which includes solutions for Wind River’s VxWorks® real-time operating system, Linux and Android. The company’s testing portfolio comprises:

  • Wind River Test Management – an automated software testing framework that identifies high-risk segments in production code, enabling change-based, optimized testing, using real-time instrumentation of devices under test.
