WOBURN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Perfecto Mobile, the world's leader in mobile app quality, today announced its upcoming Internet of Things (IoT) Tweet Chat focused on “Continuously Testing in the IoT Age.”
Who: Perfecto Mobile’s Technical Evangelist Eran Kinsbruner will lead discussion
What: “Continuously Testing in the IoT Age” Tweet Chat
Last month’s Apple Watch announcement fueled the excitement for owning the latest Apple device and next wearable. While wearables are only a small slice of the greater IoT industry, the market is rapidly growing with much anticipation of what’s next. With IDC forecasting 126.1 Million Units shipped by 2019 and that the worldwide market for IoT solutions is expected to grow to $7.1 trillion by 2020, the focus on developing quality apps for IoT is now more important than ever.
However, Dev/Test teams are still struggling to embrace and incorporate IoT into existing development cycles. The biggest challenge for companies who want to develop for wearables is ensuring the quality matches user expectations. If Apple says the Watch will open hotel doors, it must happen. As apps are being tested on yet another device, testing throughout all stages of the application development lifecycle remains a key component for success. Adopting Continuous Quality as a method will increase the speed of development to match the increasing number of IoT Devices while reducing the number of defects reaching production – ultimately cultivating higher end-user satisfaction.
To celebrate IoT Day on April 9, Perfecto Mobile will host the hour-long Tweet Chat session on April 8, looking at how Dev/Test teams can prepare for testing new devices and embracing IoT in their development cycles. Questions that will be addressed include the following:
- How many IoT devices do you currently test?
- How is your team preparing for new devices when it comes to app development? A quality-first approach is important for testing IoT – how are you testing?
- With IoT, comes challenges for testing, what are you experiencing?
- How do you incorporate Continuous Quality into IoT?
- Explain how you are overcoming the fragmentation of the market.
When: Wednesday, April 8 at 10 AM EDT / 2 PM GMT
Prizes: One active participant will receive Sonos speakers from Perfecto Mobile.
“As the connected enterprise becomes more complex, so does the world of testing,” stated Kinsbruner. “The mobile landscape continues to rapidly change and evolve and that means enterprises need to open up their testing cycles to include interactions with unique or proprietary devices, such as refrigerators, scales, thermometers, wearables, etc., in order to stay relevant and meet the demand of user experience for quality apps on the latest IoT devices.”
