Allied Testing, a leading software testing and QA company, has adapted its experience and expertise to offer a comprehensive, managed testing service for mobile applications, covering the entire lifecycle of an application, from design and development to deployment and follow-on releases.
Allied Testing has built on its experience of desktop clients and server-side testing and invested in developing mobile platform-specific expertise, test plans and test approaches that provide the building blocks for application-specific, individually specified and managed test programs. To this was added investment in hardware and test laboratory resources for tracking the dynamic landscape of mobile operating systems and hand-held, communicating devices.
Allied Testing’s service begins at the earliest phase of a software development project, continues through all intermediate stages, extends into the full lifecycle of the application and does not stop until the last release. The service is comprehensive in scope and duration, maximizing the likelihood of an excellent outcome.
We use the best tools we can find as well as build our own.
When we have defined a test approach for a mobile application, including test scripts, these can be folded into the development and testing phases to produce application builds that are instrumented for testing.
There are tools available for most platforms:
Mobile applications require their own test resources and we have invested in identifying the best tools or building what we need.
Allied Testing has more than 10 years of established testing business covering desktop and server software development projects. Mobile application testing service extends this business. The comprehensive and integrated scope of the testing for a mobile application that Allied will undertake can combine desktops, mobiles and servers as required. The advantage of this testing scope is that a defect can be chased to its origin even when this is not inside the mobile application under test.
When combined with Allied Testing’s capacity to manage the whole testing process, including all internal and external parties, a defect can be corrected by the parties best placed to do so.
Allied Testing has a decade of experience in testing the integration of complex, inter-connected clients, applications and services, including mobile applications.
We test these elements individually and in interaction with each other.
Many mobile applications communicate with software services that are internal or external to the client application developer. These applications must be integrated with those services. We can do all integration testing for mobile applications whether they are interacting with:
We understand the process of installing the software on the device; configuring the software for the user; registering the client software with other services; and meeting any organizational requirements for a cohort of users to begin using the application. Allied test plans take account of this requirement and will ensure that actual deployments proceed smoothly.
