As the mobile workforce continues to grow, managing the apps on their devices is becoming a vital aspect of enterprise mobility initiatives to ensure that employees have access to corporate apps that are bug-free and unrestricted by performance issues. Ensuring a consistent user experience across a multitude of mobile devices and OSs is important since one flaw in the app – whether it’s a crash or user experience issue – can drive users to third-party apps, creating a mobile management headache for CIOs and IT teams.

Keynote’s Mobile Testing Platform is a cloud-based, enterprise-class SaaS solution that provides manual and automated testing of all mobile apps and websites to ensure quality, high-performing mobile assets. With Keynote Mobile Testing, QA teams can quickly create and automate test scripts to capture, verify and replay real user interactions on live mobile devices. The solution combines the convenience and efficiency of test automation with the accuracy of live mobile interactions to generate reliable, reportable and actionable results.
This platform allows enterprises to automate testing of native, web-based and hybrid apps from a single interface. Some of the key capabilities include: support for all smart devices, including smartphones and tablets; a drag and drop interface with a Java API; and, integration with existing ALM tools such as HP Unified Functional Testing, HP Quality Center and IBM’s Rational Quality Manager.
Gone are the days when testers are required to write different test scripts for different devices and OSs. QA pros can write one test script and run it across as many devices and OSs as they choose, increasing the reliability and robustness of the test scripts. Additionally, test scripts will run on real devices connected to live networks – not emulators or simulators – for the optimal, most realistic results, down to the smallest pixels.
