SIGOS App Experience,*formerly Keynote DeviceAnywhere by Dynatrace, has been recognized as a top leader in “The Forrester Wave™: Mobile Front-End Test Automation Tools, Q2 2016” by John Wargo and Diego Lo Giudice.
We have been addressing the mobile testing and monitoring business for a while. And this is the first time we’ve seen an analyst firm put out a comprehensive piece focused solely on the market for mobile automated testing.
I don’t know if the genesis of this report is due to the growth and increased interest in mobile testing, or maybe the increasing number of companies in the space, or something else; in any case, this report is very welcome and in my opinion much overdue!
As a company that focuses our efforts solely in the mobile space, we have long believed that one size does not fit all, and test tools that address the particular needs of mobile apps and websites, such as testing on real devices, are the only viable way to ensure success for the brand- and quality- conscious company. Many of our customers have realized that the majority of interactions with their customers are happening on mobile devices, and if they aren’t yet, they will soon in the future. And as a result, they are putting focus on the quality and performance of their mobile offers.
Our goal as a product is to enable development and test teams to deliver high quality mobile apps quickly and efficiently with a complete, multi-stage test solution, and we are pleased to be recognized as a leader in this space.
About the Forrester Wave
The Forrester Wave is Forrester’s methodology to analyze and compare vendors in a specific technology-based market. In this report, mobile front-end test automation tools from 10 providers were assessed against 40 criteria that help testers and developers deliver mobile apps faster and with higher quality. These 40 criteria fall into the categories of vendors’ current offering, strategy and market presence.
“Current Offering” categories include:
- Breadth of the operating environment
- Specific mobile device testing capabilities (including the sophistication of cloud device labs)
- Richness of capabilities to create, define and manage test cases
- Sophistication of test execution and automation environment, reporting and analytics and orchestration of automation
- Integration of third-party nonfunctional testing tools or test data management tools as well as IDEs and programming environments
