The Perfect Solution to Address new Challenges
According to Ubertesters, the app economy has created new challenges for the mobile organization. When analyzing their QA efforts such as, the hiring of bulk testers, has signalled the need for a global solution. The huge diversity of the mobile market resulted in a true need to test the app with many devices/OS in different countries and some other carriers, thus, creating the need for a large ‘matrix.’
The new processes created a need for a new set of tools to handle this unique mobile environment. With many in-house QAs and external testers spread globally, many builds prior to the launch, lots of required devices, combine existing tools, and more have created a need for a single tool that allow OTA build distribution, controlled build management, in-house QA management and external QAs management, device management, crash reports, bug-reporting-system, integration with bug-tracking-system, etc. Thus, the Ubertesters solution is the perfect solution to address these new challenges that the app economy has created.
