Microsoft has revealed the purchase of HockeyApp. The official announcement on this purchase has been made by the famous tech company on their official blog. HockeyApp actually is a service for mobile crash analytics. It also is useful for developers creating apps for iOS, Windows Phone, as well as Android. HockeyApp is based in Stuttgart, Germany.
This app offers a range of mobile development services which can help developers to create, distribute and test out mobile applications. “As mobile, cloud, and DevOps continue to transform the application development landscape, we are bringing together the most complete set of tools and services for highly productive mobile-first, cloud-first development — from cross-platform mobile development tools in Visual Studio to Application Insights in Visual Studio Online,” the blog post announcing the purchase said.
The financial terms of this deal have not been disclosed at this point. However, it is expected for the deal to have closed for an impressive amount of money. The new purchase could be a boost for Microsoft and its future development. Microsoft has been in a continuous change process this year.
“We will integrate HockeyApp into the Application Insights service in Visual Studio Online to expand Application Insights support for iOS and Android,” Microsoft Developer Division’s corporate vice president said. He also added that Microsoft has actually been a customer for Hockey App for many years, with numerous of its apps. This means that the famous company knows very well how the service works.
Earlier this year, it has been revealed that Microsoft has the intention of reviving many of its products. In fact, since Satya Nadella became the CEO of the tech giant, Microsoft has underwent a series of changes. The company had in its plans rebranding Windows Phone and the Microsoft Lumia. Now it seems that Microsoft had made a new step to another business development possibility.
It is yet to see what Microsoft plans for next year when it comes to its releases, as well as when it comes to purchases. Without a doubt, the tech giant is going through a complex revival process, so we might expect only great outcomes.
