Endava launches specialist, secure “Hive” for testing apps on mobile devices
The Hive has been developed in response to the explosion in demand for apps and consumers’ corresponding reduced tolerance for bugs and glitches. Endava’s independent testing of high volume consumer apps prior to market launch is proving hugely popular as it saves time and cost in a totally secure environment using real situations rather than simple emulation.
The Hive sits in a highly secure environment sought after by clients, where their IP is safe. It covers all major tablets and mobile devices as well as all major operating systems which are regularly upgraded.
In using the Hive, clients are able to trust that their apps are fit for purpose across all devices and all major operating systems. The benefit of using actual devices in a live environment is that actions such as pinch, zoom and swipe can all be accurately tested. The tests are automated and are carried out simultaneously to provide cost and time savings of up to 85% compared to manual testing.
John Cotterell, CEO Endava, commented, “Whenever we take on a project at Endava our aim is not to replicate what the client could do themselves at lower cost, but to see where extra value can be given, leaving the client with “better than they had before” – transformational - if you will. In the case of the Hive; automation, our independence, our thoroughness, our replication of the real life situations that our clients’ consumers would experience and our secure environment provide that transformation. Our clients gain benefits they would have to invest in significantly if they created it themselves and that is rarely cost-effective.”
