TOSCA Testsuite and Keynote DeviceAnywhere’s combined software testing solutions allow access to over 3,000 smart devices for mobile software test automation and QA.
Vienna, Austria (PRWEB) February 29, 2012 - TRICENTIS®, a global leader in software testing and quality assurance, today announces a worldwide partnership with Keynote Systems subsidiary, Keynote DeviceAnywhere™, the global leader in mobile application lifecycle management (mobile ALM), as part of the comprehensive enterprise test automation solution. With TOSCA Mobile™, part of the TOSCA Testsuite™ suite of solutions, and Keynote DeviceAnywhere, companies with complex business processes can conduct rigorous performance testing on over 3,000 smart devices supporting major operating systems such as Android™, Symbian®, Apple iOS® and RIM BlackBerry®. In addition, TOSCA Mobile with Keynote DeviceAnywhere provides test automation solutions for all custom smart devices and engines to encourage future smart device innovation.
Gartner Research’s Vice President of Information Technology Sourcing, Gilbert Van der Heiden, underscores the importance of an advanced testing solution for smart devices: “Gartner predicts that application testing services will continue to grow and increase traction among buyers. The most pervasive reasons for this are the high level of cost savings recognized and the level of assurance provided in achieving more predictable application functionality and performance. When evaluating providers, ensure that you give proper weighting to the level of maturity, automation and process standardization that the provider has achieved in testing services. Do not forget to validate the industry-specific knowledge, templates, use and test cases and tools that the provider can deploy.”
TRICENTIS’ flagship product TOSCA Testsuite provides powerful integration for enterprise mobile application testing with one integrated, advanced testing solution. TOSCA customers can now access and test live mobile devices, rather than simulators, regardless of their physical location. TOSCA Mobile users can automate mobile test cases as they would for any other user interface. Further, TOSCA Mobile automated tests are suitable for cross device testing and can be run independent of the device or operating system. The new TOSCA Mobile offering reduces costs and speeds time-to-market for mobile applications and devices by greatly reducing the time it takes to complete testing.
“Although Test Center Enterprise has always given access to real, networked devices, the integration with Shunra adds an important extra dimension to mobile app testing,” commented Faraz Syed, Keynote DeviceAnywhere President. “By using real mobile devices in a virtualized lab environment with the respective network conditions users benefit from a a more realistic and global view of app test results.”
TOSCA Mobile delivers significant advantages for mobile device testing: One integrated solution for automated testing -- TOSCA OneViewSM Compatible with all smart devices Rerun required tests 3x faster than manually Wolfgang Platz, founder and CEO of TRICENTIS states, "With the explosion of the number of mobile devices on the market today, we decided to launch TOSCA OneView with the most comprehensive smart device testing platform in the market today. In former times, software testers and developers had to build a test case for each and every technology. Imagine trying to replicate your test case about 100 times or more to accommodate the plethora of smart device operating systems out there. The minute someone asks for a mobile or smart device application the stress level and workload of testers can go through the roof. With TOSCA OneView, which uses model-based testing for business applications, we provide a smarter, more integrated and more efficient way to test an almost limitless number of smart devices. The end result is that TOSCA Mobile can increase test automation coverage by up to 80% and can reduce mobile testing man hours by as much as 70-80%." Why TOSCA?
