The rise of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices for business use has been a point of tension for some organizations in the past, especially within professions where “desk presence” was traditionally used to measure productivity. However, according to the latest Mobile Workforce Report by Visage Mobile, this viewpoint could be outdated, as employees are now thinking about work even during their personal downtime more than ever, thanks in large part to their smartphones.
Mobile is no longer a nice-to-have but a strategic asset that can be tied back to business objectives and ultimately impact the bottom line. As a result, companies are now looking to roll out these technologies on an unprecedented scale and quality control is at the top of the IT department’s agenda.
As a result, DeviceAnywhere is proud to announce its latest extension for Rational Quality Manager 3.0.1 at IBM Innovate 2011 in Orlando, Florida. The deep integration of DeviceAnywhere’s Test Automation for Smart Devices™ and IBM Rational Quality Manager 3.0.1 provides a holistic approach for mobile enterprise app test management and execution.
The Test Automation for Smart Devices integration to Rational Quality Manger enables users to:
The integration to Rational Quality Manager also enables DeviceAnywhere customers to transform their mobile application software delivery through use of IBM Rational’s Collaborative Lifecycle Management solution to enable active collaboration and end-to-end traceability.
If the latest market report from Gartner is any indication, the pervasiveness of smartphones and the commonality of always being connected will only increase. According to the research firm, a total of 427.8 million mobile communication devices were shipped during the first quarter of 2011, 24 percent of which were smartphones. IBM and DeviceAnywhere are subsequently working together to help developers, QA managers, engineers and business analysts take control of the mobile opportunity and bring quality mobile applications to market faster than ever before.
