Mobile Testing Masterclass: Ditch On-Premise Devices and Deliver Quality Mobile Apps at Speed

Discover why transitioning to cloud-based device testing reduces risk, improves efficiency, and speeds up time-to-market.

Discover why transitioning to cloud-based device testing reduces risk, improves efficiency, and speeds up time-to-market.

With the complexity of mobile app development and remote/hybrid workforces, choosing an on-premise (or in-house) approach to mobile app testing can quickly become unsustainable, increasing the cost of quality and negatively impacting mobile app release cycles. 

In this two-part series, we explore how transitioning to cloud-based device testing can help you reduce your total cost of ownership (TCO) threefold or more, all while enabling greater efficiency, scale, and development velocity. 

Part 1: Mobile Testing Strategies for Maximizing ROI, Minimizing Headaches

While manual testing with physical devices stymies innovation, collaboration, scale, and productivity, making the move to cloud-based device testing leads to reduced risk, improved efficiency, and faster time-to-market. In this replay, we take a look at:

  • How the hidden costs of maintaining in-house device farms can add 3x or more to your overhead

  • Navigating the trade-offs of choosing your mobile testing approach

  • How consolidating mobile testing with a strategic cloud-based testing vendor can help you achieve more with less

  • Why modernizing your testing processes is critical in today’s competitive landscape

Part 2: Optimize Mobile App Testing for Speed, Scale, and Coverage

As the mobile industry experiences explosive growth, delivering quality mobile apps at speed and maintaining a seamless customer experience has never been more important. In fact, after using Sauce Labs, customers improved release speeds by up to 50% and achieved a 46% uptick in weekly code deployments. 

If you are looking to increase automated testing or replacing existing practices with a platform approach, we have got you covered! We’ll demonstrate:

  • Getting started with cloud-based device testing using Sauce Labs

  • Testing mobile apps for real-world use cases

  • Scaling test automation and running more tests faster 

  • Integrations with popular open source frameworks and tools
