Mobile QA Testing Rises, Especially for Security

Less than 31 percent of companies reported validating mobile applications last year, according to Capgemini’s new World Quality Report 2013-2014. This year, the data show a rapid rise in mobile testing applications. Over 55 percent of organizations interviewed are implementing methods and tools to validate functionality, performance and security. The Capgemini report noted, however, that the meaning of quality assurance (QA) activity differs between markets. In China, for example, where mobile adaption is growing very rapidly, practices lag behind as less than half of executives say their organizations are testing mobile devices. In Eastern Europe, mobile adoption is behind the curve compared to most developed markets, but 69 percent of organizations report testing mobile applications. The Capgemini report says the disconnect from region to region between the popularity of mobile and mobile testing practices could be because less-mature QA organizations may report mobile testing, but partially test only a small number of popular devices.
