Vector Software, the world's leading provider of innovative software solutions for robust embedded software quality, announced the release of VectorCAST™ 6.3 today, the most Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-machine (M2M)-ready embedded test suite.
Building on the embedded domain expertise Vector Software has developed over the last 20 years, version 6.3 provides a new micro harness architecture designed for the special needs of IoT / M2M applications. The new architecture is critical for IoT / M2M applications because of the smaller microprocessors and limited resources that are available to these applications. Analysts are projecting IoT and M2M to grow into a $71 billion industry by 2018 (Juniper Research, Smart Home Ecosystems & the Internet of Things, 12/02/2014). With billions of newly connected devices going on line, high quality software is essential for these devices to operate as intended.

"The coming growth of IoT and M2M will take a slice of intelligence out of the cloud and push it back to the periphery of the network," said John Paliotta, Chief Technology Officer, Vector Software. "As this evolves, the correct autonomous operation of those network end points will be critical. We feel that VectorCAST is uniquely positioned to help developers build quality into IoT and M2M applications."

Beyond the new harness architecture, VectorCAST 6.3 provides several other enhancements for test collaboration, Change-Based Testing (CBT), and massively parallel testing. These features make it simple for your team to leverage test cases and test results across the enterprise. Each developer can quickly and independently test their code changes by running only those tests affected by the source code changes made; this leads to improved software quality with reduced test cycle times.

As tests are integrated together into suites, an enhanced integration with the open-source continuous integration server Jenkins, provides VectorCAST 6.3 users the ability to deploy massively parallel testing over hundreds of servers.
