New set of free resources helps enhance mobile and web testing strategies
BOSTON – May 17, 2016 – Perfecto Mobile, the market leader in empowering enterprises to deliver high-quality digital experiences, today announced the availability of theirUltimate Digital Test Coverage Toolkit, a free “starter package” that guides Test, DevOps and Product Development teams to make better-informed decisions about their web and mobile test strategies across devices and geographies. The Ultimate Test Coverage Toolkit helps practitioners reduce risk associated with digital quality by identifying the right mix of mobile devices and browsers to test on across geographies; how to set up and maintain a robust and scalable test lab; and what device/browser platforms to pay particular attention to in 2016.
According to Criteo’s State of Mobile Commerce report, 40 percent of transactions today take place on multiple digital platforms – from mobile devices and desktops to wearables. Ensuring that dev/test teams are using the best combination of mobile devices, browsers and operating systems for their target user base is crucial to delivering a great digital experience, yet the diverse digital landscape and rapid pace of releases causes challenges when strategizing test plans. A recent Forrester Wave™ (Mobile Front-End Test Automation Tools, Q2 2016) report noted the most successful mobile apps are tested on many device models and under a variety of conditions; however anticipating and mitigating the unknown means testing an app “on tens, hundreds, and even thousands” of different devices, operating systems and browsers.
“A common challenge for teams developing or scaling their test strategies across web and mobile is making the decision of which devices, browsers and geographies to include in their test plans,” said Eran Kinsbruner, Technical Evangelist at Perfecto. The Ultimate Digital Test Coverage Toolkit aims to simplify the digital landscape by showing users how to maximize test strategies, guide users to make data-driven decisions about test coverage, and deliver great user experiences across digital channels.”
Powered by regularly updated market and proprietary data, the Ultimate Test Coverage Toolkit enables users to stay ahead of the curve and consistently deliver great digital experiences to their customers through a variety of features and resources, including:
- A free, online interactive tool to answer, “Which mobile devices and platforms should you test on?” With the five most popular devices and operating systems accounting for more than 500 possible browser and device combinations alone, the new Digital Test Coverage Optimizer tool enables teams to discover the optimal device/system mix for maximizing test coverage with the fewest devices possible.
- Resources and data to inform ongoing coverage strategy. The Test Coverage Toolkit includes a number of resources to help app developers, testers and product managers develop a strategy for multi-device interactions that will cover all target markets and user profiles. The Digital Test Coverage Index Report combines data from 4,000+ device profiles, mobile market usage data and proprietary Perfecto analysis to help teams determine the level of digital quality testing required to cover all relevant target markets and customers on an ongoing basis.
- A comprehensive guide for implementing a digital test strategy.
