The Dilemma of Device Proliferation
The demand for high-quality mobile applications is growing exponentially. Mobile apps and websites are becoming essential assets, but testing is often a disjointed, inefficient process.
While it’s widely recognized that end-to-end testing is essential to getting reliable, real-world results, mobile testing is often disconnected from testing the rest of the business process, resulting in testing gaps and a poor understanding of overall business process success.
But even the device testing itself is in its infancy in most companies. Many existing mobile testing tools are inefficient, lack scalability and are unusable by remote or distributed teams. They rely on emulators and simulators that lack the accuracy of real mobile device testing.
Add to that the thousands of combinations of devices, operating systems and configurations that change at an unprecedented rate and new paradigms for mobile-specific hardware controls and events like accelerometers, connect/disconnect batteries, open/close clamshell, and the mobile testing challenge can seem insurmountable.
Seamless Automated Testing for Mobile
Worksoft Certify Mobile Interface Extension™ extends Worksoft’s next-generation test automation to any mobile device or application, and covers all Android™, Blackberry®, iPhone™, and Windows® Phone 7 smartphones and tablets.
With Worksoft Certify Mobile Interface Extension you can extend your end-to-end business process test scripts to run on live mobile devices. You can remotely press device buttons, connect/disconnect batteries, open/close clamshells, control accelerometers, or operate any hardware control available on the device. Testing is 100% representative of what the end-user will experience on a given operator network, which is essential to getting true end-to-end testing results you can count on.
An always-on, globally accessible device bank saves significant cost and effort vs. establishing and managing mobile QA labs for distributed teams. There are multiple deployment options so you can use it the way that best fits your business needs. You can have on-demand access to public devices, private devices securely hosted offsite or even private devices on premise for when security is a primary concern.
Worksoft Certify Mobile Interface Extension allows you to test any mobile app or website – native, HTML5, network-aware, streaming, multi-media, etc.—and use powerful algorithms to execute tests and analyze results. Complex scenarios are structured into high-level device-independent test cases and low level test steps (actions) that are implemented across your chosen devices, so you can easily port tests across multiple handset models and operating systems.
With Worksoft Certify Mobile Interface Extension you can follow your real-world business processes throughout SAP® and the “ecosystem” of software around it, easily moving from core SAP to browser-based technologies to mobile applications and back again, resulting in better, faster, more reliable results and improved business agility
