PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Nouvola, a company whose user-centered platform tests and optimizes software performance, has joined the Fall 2016 Cohort of the Jaguar Land Rover Tech Incubator. The fast-growing startup is one of three companies selected by Jaguar Land Rover this quarter in a nationwide search for emerging technologies positioned to disrupt the automotive industry and define the future of mobility. As part of their acceptance into the six-month program, Nouvola will receive funding, high-end office space in the Jaguar Land Rover Incubator facility, and engineering and design support from the company's global team. The Nouvola platform uses synthetic testing and machine learning technologies to analyze, predict, and prevent software bottlenecks and can scale to millions of connected devices across any number of clouds. Nouvola's patent-pending DiveCloud™, a cloud-based, scalable performance testing solution, supports web applications, mobile apps, API and micro-services and offers integrated, in-depth performance metrics and analytics. This translates to more engaged and satisfied users of websites, apps, and cars. "As the industry races towards building the fully connected car and ultimately, the fully autonomous vehicle, we are anticipating huge demand for new digital technologies associated with connected cars," said Paola Moretto, Nouvola's Co-Founder and CEO. "Essentially, the vehicle becomes a platform to deliver software-based services based on data, sensors and analytics, and the car becomes a true mobile Internet-of-Things world. The customer's experience, therefore, will hinge on the performance, speed and resilience of their car's software and backend services." "We're thrilled to welcome Nouvola to the Jaguar Land Rover Tech Incubator," said Danielle Alexander, General Manager of the Jaguar Land Rover Tech Incubator. "The potential for the connected car is huge and is one of our biggest priorities. With every vehicle we build being fully connected we look forward to seeing how Nouvola could enhance the motoring experience." Nouvola's current customers include Fortune 500 brands and mid-size enterprises across a range of industries. Through their collaboration with Jaguar Land Rover, Nouvola is well positioned to lead the software performance analysis market within the automotive industry and play a big role in the digital transformation for connected cars.
