The explosion in the variety of devices and technology available over the past decade means that businesses must be equipped with an agile knowhow and are ready to adopt digital transformation to keep pace with changing customer’s preferences. That’s why Multi-Experience Development has emerged to allow enterprises to have greater control over the development process of applications intended to be run over variety of devices and environments.
In this article, we break down Multi-Experience Testing for enterprises.
What is Multi-Experience?
The term ‘Multi-Experience’ covers the vast ecosystem of devices and applications that user interacts with during their digital journey on a variety of touchpoints.
What is a Multi-Experience Development Platform(MXDP)?
Multi-experience development is about engineering applications that work through several modalities like voice, touch, gesture, text across devices and applications, AR, VR etc. all while letting the users enjoy consistent user experience across the entire ecosystem whether it’s web, mobile, immersive or any other touchpoint.
Just a few years ago, applications operating on different devices were developed separately in silos. Different teams handled development of different versions of the same application, for instance, the web application and the mobile application were handled by different teams. But now, thanks to the emergence of Multi-Experience Development Platforms, mobile and web applications can be developed together. Latest testing tools can also assist enterprises to carry out multi-experience testing accurately and efficiently.
This has allowed enterprises to research and develop more innovative ways of engagement for the end user by creating new frontiers of interaction. In addition, the need to personalize and customize user experiences for each user and device has never been greater.
Keeping a consistent user experience while innovating to find new avenues of personalized interaction for your end user can also slow down the delivery of the solution. That’s where the power of automation assists enterprises reduce the time-to-market of their solution without compromising on delivering innovation and superior user experience. That’s what being agile is all about.
The Shift Left Strategy
Being agile demands the teams work faster and collaborate more efficiently. In fact, testers with a variety of skillsets are roped alongside developers in the project in the early developmental stages itself. In testing terms, this is what is referred to as the ‘Shift Left Strategy’.
Testers join right from the design stage while working closely with backend developers. On the other hand, some testers work hand-in-hand with API developers, testing alongside as the product is being built. Testing becomes quicker, faster and iterative.
Using test automation, new test cases are generated faster, the number of application scenarios covered are more while the effort and time invested goes down by half.
The time-to-market is accelerated for all versions of the application allowing for expanding test coverage to a variety of devices and running environments while optimizing operational expenditure.
How to Shift Left for Test Automation?
Performance engineering is an integral part of delivering superior applications. When it comes to MXDPs, it is crucial to ensure accuracy of all possible versions and environments the application will run on. That’s why the role of testing is vital in this case. Thanks to new age automation testing tools like TestingWhiz, codeless test automation, for testing applications created on MXDPs has never been this easy.
Why choose Automation Testing for MXDP testing?
Automation Testing relies on automation tools to generate and execute test cases. It significantly reduces the development cycle while consistently helping you improve the software quality at speed. It saves time and promises greater return on investment.
Automation testing helps enterprises achieve their testing goals within the stipulated deadline ensuring all the client’s requirements are met.
