Smartphones have become powerful, sophisticated, and advanced over the years. From just being a device to communicate, now smartphones are leveraged to do any personal or professional work efficiently. From browsing social media to handling emails, smartphones have become a multipurpose gadget for users all over the world. More than $350 billion of revenue was generated from just mobile apps in 2018. And these astronomical numbers are only expected to surpass over $900 billion by 2023.
Amid the exponential growth of mobile users, several challenges have emerged with mobile app testing service providers. Cutthroat competition has compelled businesses to launch applications at a faster pace. Apart from shorter time-to-market, QA professionals need to consider multiple aspects of an application including multiple OS versions, cross-platform capabilities, network, data usage, and in-built native features.
With such a large ecosystem of mobile applications, it is also essential to use mobile test automation for enhanced efficiency, test effectiveness, and speed-to-market. However, it is not just technology and tools that can help you to implement mobile test automation efficiently. There are several other crucial factors that you need to consider to offer flawless mobile test automation services.
CostIt is crucial to think about the cost factor with a thorough approach. You should consider factors including automation tools, timeline, IT infrastructure, training, and available bandwidth of resources. Analyze all these factors comprehensively to calculate ROI and identify the feasibility of a mobile app.
Automation testing methods will also help in reducing the cost and efforts. You can resume already built test cases again and again without manual efforts. The time saved through this process will help in reducing the overall cost of the mobile app. Test automation can also enable QA teams to perform parallel app testing to find out and fix bugs at an early stage of
