Capgemini Launches Cloud-hosted, Mobile Applications Testing Lab

Staff Report | May 04, 2017

Capgemini and Experitest announce the availability of a cloud-hosted, on demand, mobile applications testing lab. The new lab enables financial service providers to validate and monitor all digital mobile applications on a 24/7 basis, resulting in optimized mobile application quality and estimated cost savings of up to 50 percent.

“Mobile applications offer flexibility and ease of use. Innovation in testing mobile applications must also provide flexibility and convenience, and this cloud-hosted mobile lab transforms how these apps can be tested,” says Anand Moorthy, vice president of Capgemini’s financial services. “Working with our alliance partner, Experitest, affords us the opportunity to leverage their extensive array of tools to deliver our clients a seamless development, testing, and production cycle which can transform their business.”

Client mobile digital DevOps teams including quality assurance (QA), and production and development essentially “rent” the lab—the mobile devices and tools package—as needed on a pay-by-use basis. They can quickly set up a “private lab bench” that can comprise of a variety of digital devices, including all the latest smartphones, tablets, and wearable devices such as iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry. 

The lab, which is based on the SeeTestCloud platform by Experitest, allows these teams to remotely access mobile devices from anywhere at any time. The entire environment is isolated within Capgemini’s virtual private network and provides testers with high speed performance. The lab integrates seamlessly with Experitest’s end-to-end suite of tools, as well as any automation or development open source environment. This enables complete mobile application testing including functional, performance and compatibility testing, while using manual testing or test automation.

"The Capgemini mobile device hosted cloud dedicated for the financial services industry is a unique offering for banks, insurance companies, and other financial services enterprises. The core capabilities of functional and performance testing are fully integrated into the CICD flow of these organizations, creating seamless cooperation between mobile app developers, QA, and operations, making the agile release of high-quality mobile apps a reality,” said Tal Barmeir, Experitest CEO.

The new lab enables continuous integration, continuous deployment and allows fully automated 24/7 continuous testing. Client teams can seamlessly integrate into any continuous integration environment to directly manage their test executions and run their automated tests in parallel. They can consolidate all of their test results into a centralized test analytics system and even share same devices with development teams for quicker bug resolution. All of this adds up to shortened testing cycles and accelerated time to market.
