Keynote just let the word out that it has completed the integration of Keynote Mobile Testing with Appium, an open source framework designed to help automate the testing of native and web iOS and Android mobile applications.
Keynote, as many know, is now a part of Dynatrace, a leading digital performance company.
“The new integration will allow organizations to improve the quality of apps by enabling efficient collaboration between quality assurance (QA) practitioners doing end-to-end testing and developers automating unit tests,” the Keynote crew tells us.
Why the need for the integration?
Developers and QA professionals find themselves facing pressure to support the cascading introduction of new mobile app features.
“To efficiently address this challenge, developers are looking for ways to leverage tools and languages they are already familiar with to automate unit tests,” the company said this week. “At the same time, QA professionals, who test the integrity of the app before publishing, need a way to streamline the testing process to accelerate time to market.”
“In the age of mobile, the drive towards innovative and continuously improved user applications is at the core of any successful mobile strategy,” explains Howard Wilson, executive vice president of commercial operations at Keynote. “With the Appium integration, we’re working to close the gap between quality assurance and developers through an open approach that can be utilized throughout the organization, ultimately shortening the application lifecycle with no compromise to quality.”
The new integration is now available for users of Keynote Mobile Testing Enterprise.
