Reasons You Need Automated Cross-Platform Testing: Quality, Speed and Solid ROI

Cross-Platform TestingAn ongoing quality assurance strategy, along with other proven test approaches and techniques, helps ensure best in class software. A reliable automated test strategy has always been central to quality software development, but now most applications span so many different platforms, it makes cross-platform testing more important than ever.

 

Full spectrum automated cross-platform testing will quickly identify any back-end issues or bugs so they can be fixed, no matter what you’re testing: from a large-scale web app across various different desktop and mobile browsers, or native iOS and Android apps on many different devices.

Achieving Greater Reach with Cross-Platform Software Capability

http://www.dreamstime.com/-image21723193In the purest sense, cross-platform software development simply means that an application can be designed using a single language or tool set, and with a simple ‘click’ it can easily be deployed for a variety of platforms. Obviously the more platforms covered, the greater the reach. It’s an advantage to maintain a single code base with the ability to readily fix problems for any platform. Cost reduction is another significant benefit to cross-platform development since the one code base requires less testing than multiple applications.

 

The reality is that having multiple apps with some measure of cross-platform capability is more the norm. That is to say, developing multiple solutions with consistent functionality using technology such as responsive design for efficient delivery is more often the case.
