Perfecto Releases Summer 2019 Mobile & Web Test Coverage Index

May 14, 2019

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 14, 2019--

Perfecto, a Perforce Software company and market leader in cloud-based automated mobile and web application testing solutions, today announced the release of its Summer 2019 Mobile & Web Test Coverage Index, which serves as a reference guide for DevOps teams, helping to inform cross-platform testing strategies that mitigate risk, identify which devices to test on and ensure consistent user experiences.

Providing analysis on market trends and user behaviors across 13 countries, the latest edition of the Mobile & Web Test Coverage Index also outlines the impact emerging trends like Artificial Intelligence (AI), 5G and foldable devices have on mobile and desktop web app development and testing. Formerly known as FACTORS, the Index utilizes internal and market data to help DevOps teams adequately prepare for the opportunities and challenges these trends present.

“Following several years of stagnation, the mobile market is finally beginning to experience a shift as user demand for more sophisticated technologies, like 5G, foldables and IoT devices, rapidly climbs,” said Eran Kinsbruner, Chief Evangelist at Perfecto. “The Summer 2019 Mobile & Web Test Coverage Index identifies these changes and provides teams with actionable advice. For example, how utilizing AI and machine learning (ML) for codeless test automation and smarter analytics/reporting helps accelerate velocity and deliver consistent, high-quality experiences.”

Consumer Adoption Rates and Market Trends Impact Testing Strategies
Over the last few years, adoption rates for new devices, operating systems (OSs) and web browsers have lagged. However, Perfecto’s Summer 2019 Mobile & Web Test Coverage Index found that more consumers are just now starting to adopt the latest versions of their preferred OS (e.g. Android and iOS) and smartphones in advance of these new technologies. Research from Gartner, Inc. validates this sentiment, with its recent report that found the device market is expected to grow in 2020.

With innovations in OSs (e.g. Android Q and iOS 13), foldable devices and 5G networks expected to dominate the market later this year, development teams should be prepared to deal with greater complexity, app instability and issues with automation compatibility. The Summer 2019 Index includes new mobile and web forecast calendars that offer actionable guidance for teams to proactively combat these expected challenges, like embedding AI and ML into test ecosystems to avoid flaky tests and operational fatigue.

Key Findings from the Summer 2019 Index
Additional key findings highlighted from the Summer 2019 Index include:
