Posted May 28th, 2021

This paper discusses the need to automate testing with both emulators and real devices for a best-of-breed mobile QA environment.

Today, businesses compete in an increasingly mobile-centric marketplace. Modern mobile testing teams can no longer take a backseat in ensuring overall application quality. In their efforts to find the ideal environment to run automated mobile tests, organizations are conflicted between real mobile devices and emulators/simulators. One option promises more accurate test results, while the other delivers greater agility.

This white paper argues that organizations should use both these options according to their strengths for a best-of-breed mobile testing environment. It suggests a working model that can be applied to QA workflows right away for maximum benefit.
