TVS’s successful installation testing leads to improved SOMNIUM customer software experience

Bristol, UK, 4 March 2015 – TVS, a leader in software test and hardware verification solutions, today announced that it has provided installation testing services for SOMNIUM® Technologies.  Under the contract TVS performed important installation testing of SOMNIUM® DRT, a complete software development environment for embedded systems.

SOMNIUM DRT provides ease of use improvements and uses SOMNIUM's patented resequencing technology to automatically optimise embedded software, resulting in smaller, faster executables. Prior to DRT’s general availability release, SOMNIUM wanted to be confident of the best out of the box experience for its customers, who use a wide variety of host platforms, so it contacted TVS for its proven, vast experience in this field.

Dave Edwards, Founder and CEO/CTO of SOMNIUM Technologies, stated, “Installation is the first step in the user experience, and it is often under-tested in real-user scenarios. SOMNIUM felt it was best practise to bring in a level of independence and we naturally turned to TVS because of its expertise in this area.”

Jamie Packer, VP of Customer Engineering at SOMNIUM Technologies, added, “SOMNIUM already performs extensive automated testing of functionality and standards compliance using several test suites. However, it is impossible to automate the experience of new users with different expectations and a variety of hardware and software configurations. The testing performed by TVS was extremely useful and thorough. TVS tried a number of interesting corner cases. This has led to improvements in both the installation process and the documentation.”

Mike Bartley, Founder and CEO of TVS commented, “SOMNIUM is very proactive in recognising the importance of independent installation testing. Many companies overlook this aspect, and hence many new users report a negative experience when starting with a new tool. TVS is pleased to have helped SOMNIUM Technologies to improve its installation process. We look forward to working with them again in the future.”

SOMNIUM® believe software development tools must evolve to address the bottlenecks of embedded software development, to transform time to market, system efficiency and cost. The company’s SOMNIUM® DRT product solves these problems, automatically generating best results, first time, every time. For more information, visit
