Optimized test creation

The diverse range of test creation options means that everyone can contribute to test design, regardless of technical skillset. Business and technical teams work in partnership to ensure test coverage of the full range of customer usage patterns.

Using the innovative recorder, tests can be created in minutes. Tests are represented visually so no coding skills are required, or as actual Java/.NET scripts to enable developer-powered functions such as debugging or refactoring.

Keyword-Driven Testing Overview

Optimized test creation
Ensure a consistent user experience anytime, anywhere, on any device

Automated functional tests are executed consistently across mobile devices with a single portable test script so test teams can rapidly identify and document application issues across hundreds of mobile configurations. Screenshots, videos, and status reports track every aspect of test execution on any device. Developers use their preferred tool, as IDE integrations support current tools and processes without disruption.

Realistic performance testing at scale

Anticipate the true user experience with performance testing that simulates realistic scenarios across multiple devices, network bandwidths, and geographic combinations. Use powerful, end-to-end diagnostics to analyze transaction speed and identify the root cause of performance problems. Avoid costly investments in testing infrastructure by harnessing the power of the Cloud for global peak load tests or functional tests across mobile configurations.
