Testing Strategies for Ensuring the Success of Mobile Applications

Daniel Hartveld, Red Ant; Amichai Lesser, Shunra; Toby Marsden, Hewlett Packard
The use of mobile applications to conduct day to day business is set to increase exponentially over the next few years. Jupiter Research estimates that 1 in 8 will use mobile ticketing in 2015 and up to 1 billion will access financial services. Yet many companies have yet to develop a robust testing strategy for mobile applications

Testing mobile applications is complex. Not only do test teams have to validate the functionality of the mobile application, they also have to consider their performance under load as well as across multiple devices, carriers, operating systems and geographies. This requires test teams to adapt existing test methodologies and processes to ensure consistent behaviour across many environments

Challenges include:
-Evaluating the need for emulator-based or real device testing solutions
-Coping with varying bandwidth and user loads
-Identifying optimization opportunities for mobile application clients and infrastructure to ensure that applications remain responsive under challenging mobile network conditions and increasing load
-Post-release monitoring

Join HP, Shunra and Red Ant for a lively and interactive panel debate where we will be discussing the business impact of mobile functionality and performance across various sectors including finance, automotive, retail and consumer goods. In addition the experts panel will discuss best practices in implementing a mobile performance engineering framework to ensure companies are successful with their mobility projects.

  • As most IT Pros are aware, as of April 8th, 2014, Microsoft will stop releasing security patches for Windows XP. Unfortunately, most folks will not be able to migrate all Windows XP machines by that deadline. How will you limit the security risks posed by these now vulnerable assets? Join us for this webinar outlining practical strategies to help you cover your assets.
    In this session we'll cover:
    The primary attack vectors you need to consider
    Immediate actions you can take to limit the exposure of your XP assets
    Warning signs to watch out for that could signal an attack
    How to closely monitor your vulnerable assets with AlienVault USM
  • MDM implementations begin by solving the most pressing business problem in a single hub, mostly on-premise. They then expand to another use case, domain, or region, and might evolve to another MDM hub on cloud or in a different country. Whatever the journey might be, how do you tie the different hubs together in a hybrid or federated hub-of-hubs MDM architecture? Come to this session to learn how certain leading companies are solving this conundrum!

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    -What are the initial use cases that dictate MDM
    -How to determine if you should use the same MDM instance or a different one when expanding your use case
    -When to use on-premise versus cloud MDM

    In addition, we will explore examples of companies using hybrid MDM to manage multiple MDM hubs as well as evolving to the holy-grail of MDM architecture: Hub-of-hubs or federated MDM.
  • Cyberspace is typically the prime mechanism for conducting business. It also plays a key role in the socio-cultural lives of staff, customers and suppliers. By the end of 2013, revelations about how governments had been surrendering commercial and personal privacy in the name of national security left trust very badly shaken. And the timing couldn’t be much worse: many CEOs are ramping up their demands to take even greater advantage of cyberspace. So if this is where things are now, how will all of this look by 2016? How will new threats hurtling over the horizon complicate matters even further? Just what will organisations be able to rely on? And most importantly, are they powerless or can they do something now? This webcast spotlights the threats we'll be dealing with over the coming 24 months along with advice on the best ways of handling them.
  • As more and more companies look to take advantage of all of the benefits afforded with cloud-based infrastructures, the discussion often quickly turns to “How do we get there?” For some companies, this single migration question can create an insurmountable roadblock that either keeps them from moving to the cloud or severely delays their migration. Join Michael McCracken, HOSTING’s Director of Professional Services, as he explores different cloud migration strategies along with the benefits and risks associated with each of those strategies.
  • Anti-virus is not enough. McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection add defense in depth against the full threat spectrum from zero-day exploits to hacker attacks, as well as mobile devices such and tablets.
  • Protiviti has conducted the second-annual Executive Perspectives on Top Risks Survey. We obtained the views of more than 370 board members and C-suite executives about risks that are likely to affect their organisation in 2014.

    Join Managing Director, Mike Purvis and Director, Dirk Verwohlt for a discussion of the report findings.
  • With the release of PCI-DSS version 3.0 many organizations that are already PCI compliant or are working towards becoming PCI compliant are wondering what these changes will mean to their organization. In this webinar we will take a look at what has changed (and what hasn’t) and the impact this will have on how organizations approach PCI compliance.
  • As we continue to explore the ERP implementation process, we’re going to dive deeper into one technology solution you might consider for a successful ERP implementation. Join us as we discuss Oracle eBusiness Suite Release 12. You’ll want to join us if you’re:
    • Thinking about upgrading to release 12
    • On R12.1 and considering moving to R12.2
    • Just looking for a little ‘positive sell’ to add to that budget request so you can fund your upgrade

    Oracle eBusiness Suite Release 12 was defined as “The Global Business Release”. This doesn’t encompass just its geographic reach…the Suite is a comprehensive tool whose breadth and depth across industries and business functions is compelling for customers around the world.

    During this session, participants will learn about:
    • The changes to R12.2 including the foundational architecture improvements and financial enhancements
    • How the strength of Financials Release 12 allows businesses to work globally - across applications, divisions and regions and the tools necessary to achieve that.
    • Integration, data management and reporting

    Oracle eBusiness Suite Release 12 makes it easier and less expensive for customers to implement, manage and scale global applications - ultimately improving the overall ownership experience.
  • Big data has gone beyond a buzzword for businesses and is rapidly becoming embedded in the way organisations operate and make decisions. Highlighted as one of the key areas for attention in the latest ISF Threat Horizon 2016 report, Big data analytics can also mislead when decisions are based on faulty, skewed, incomplete or poorly analysed data sets, resulting in missed opportunities as organisations enter the wrong markets, or enter the right markets with the wrong products. It’s also possible that the same data sets can lead to different conclusions in different parts of the world as a result of cultural bias. Further complicating matters, attackers will target data analytics tools to ensure decisions are skewed.

    This webcast will look at the implied threats to Big Data and offer ways of communicating the challenge of effective Big Data analysis and decision making to senior management.

  • Service Virtualisation Trends in the UK Recorded: Oct 11 2013 49 mins
    Service Virtualisation – Test Further. Test Faster. Test Better!

    Join us for a research based webinar led by Forrester, which uncovers and addresses the concerns of how to stay in step with the velocity of today’s application delivery.

    Today's applications are largely compositions representing business processes put in place to better serve the business. But as businesses rapidly change, the need to adopt more agile processes is growing, which in turn means that the supporting applications must also be flexible.

    For example did you know that:

    •close to 70% of IT leaders think that they need to increase overall automation to shorten release cycles?
    •over 58% of IT leaders see a clear need for more integration testing in 12-18 months for systems of engagement because of growing architecture complexity?
    •long testing cycles are seen as a huge impediment to shorter and more frequent releases?
