Impacts and Recommendations

  • Raised end-user expectations require AD managers and their QA specialists to expand their quality focus to include testing across the end-to-end mobile application life cycle
  • AD managers must give their testing teams access to a wide variety of devices to perform many types of tests across multiple channels, but no single solution for mobile application testing will address all test requirements
  • AD managers need a model for assessing mobile application testing options to augment their existing tools portfolio
  • The mobile app development paradigm exposes inadequate skill sets that impact overall productivity and puts AD managers under increased pressure to address existing knowledge gaps
