Are You Doing Side-by-Side Testing For Web and Mobile?

/, Mobile Application Testing, Responsive Web Design/Are You Doing Side-by-Side Testing For Web and Mobile?

This week, Perfecto conducted a webinar around the shift to digital and the importance of building and releasing web and mobile products. We covered the practices of running side by side testing of Selenium test code across multiple platforms, and in multiple languages (Java and C#) and IDEs (Eclipse, Visual Studio, Android Studio and InteliJ).

During the webinar we conducted two polls about companies testing plans for web and mobile.

Are you testing your on devices and browsers?

The first poll was about team responsibility in a digital landscape, specifically which teams are responsible for mobile and web testing. As you can see in the results below, the majority (52%) of the answers revealed that teams today are still doing silo’d testing for mobile and web separately, while 22% are doing side-by-side testing for both mobile and web.

Are you performing side by side testing?

In the second poll, we learned that 30% of the organizations are planning to shift to parallel side by side mobile and web testing. With 22% already doing that today, that means that more than 50% of organizations will be doing cross-platform parallel testing within the next six months.

Perfecto customers benefit from a cloud-based continuous quality lab that lets them launch multiple devices and browser versions, and then test against them. What’s more, they can leverage their existing mobile app development tools such as Selenium and Eclipse, to run automated scripts across all the different operating platforms. This gives teams a complete view of any errors that may occur on certain devices, OSs, or browser versions – reducing the risk of delivering a bad digital experience. Check it out for yourself >>
