Performance Engineering of Mobile Apps – Not the Old Wine in New Bottle

Th6     Start Time : 11:00     End Time : 11:45

From the dotcom days, through the emergence of service oriented architectures and e-Commerce gaining popularity, end user experience has become one of the paramount corporate objectives.

With Mobile apps becoming part of the core enterprise strategy and Mobile platform on the verge of tipping the PC platform, a comprehensive approach to validating the ‘end user experience’ for Mobile apps is very critical for the success of any business.

Industry has certainly reacted to the need but the approach has been conventional at best. The testing fraternity is responding by force fitting the performance testing approach of the web world to the mobile world. Renowned COTS providers are supplementing their tool suites by adding a mobile protocol feature to their existing web testing capabilities. Cloud based device management solutions have extended integration to these third party testing tools.

Such responses to the testing demands of the mobile world are indeed warranted however not adequate. In addition to explaining the network and consumer usage patterns of the Mobile world, this paper/talk articulates a 360 degree approach to validating Mobile application performance and other non-functional attributes. Also this paper emphasizes that the analysis of the device side performance and augmenting it with network profiling data are vital complements to the conventional server side performance testing.
