Designing and maintaining a mobile device lab is a high priority when developing and testing today’s mobile apps, but where do you start? Should you use a public cloud or set up your own lab on-site? Or maybe you want a hybrid and use both? Even more important, what kind of devices should you include? In this session, Costa will cover the benefits of having a device lab in the cloud vs. local/on-premise. He will address the appropriate mix of unique devices to ensure proper test coverage, the core components of a world class device lab, and the evaluation criteria when comparing options. Within this presentation, Costa reviews a case study of a client that started with a small, on-premise lab, their challenges with test coverage (not enough devices), and their long-term strategy to improve device coverage. The result was an increase of 100% in test coverage and reduced defects to production.
