Kobiton Announces Beta Release of Mobile Test Management
May 16, 2024

Kobiton announced the beta release of mobile test management, a new feature within its test automation platform.

Designed to streamline the management of test suites, test cases, and test runs, the feature uses AI to identify and aggregate common issues across devices, enabling faster bug resolution.

Kobiton's new mobile test management capability offers a more comprehensive approach to test management and analysis, including deeper visibility into the different stages of mobile testing, and AI and automation to streamline testing processes.

Leveraging AI-powered error analysis, mobile test management efficiently identifies and aggregates common issues across different devices, enabling swift bug resolution. Additionally, the introduction of scriptless test suites allows for grouping related tests, ensuring seamless execution. Key capabilities of the mobile test management feature include:

- Visual-first approach: Users can see test steps and visually compare test cases and test runs across devices, capturing subtle differences in app behavior on various devices and operating systems, a capability not found in traditional test management systems.

- Mobile bundles: Testers can choose device bundles or individual devices for testing, and simultaneously execute tests across devices, enhancing efficiency and coverage.

- Mass remediation: Users can correct errors across numerous devices in a single workflow rather than as unrelated errors, simplifying effort by orders of magnitude.

- Efficient test suite creation: By automating the conversion of manual testing steps into test cases that can be executed simultaneously, mobile test management saves time while also enhancing analytical capabilities by aggregating data across tests.

- At-a-glance results: Mobile test management includes a dashboard-like UI for viewing test results. This is unique to Kobiton because of the many mobile device permutations. The dashboard shows the status of tests running and completed for each device.

While mobile test management can be a standalone tool for companies focused on mobile, eventually it will integrate with popular test management systems such as TestRail, Tricentis qTest, Zephyr, and Xray. These integrations will add value to traditional test management systems by capturing essential data from mobile devices and operating systems.

“This is a pivotal market introduction that elevates mobile testing by recognizing its unique characteristics,” said Frank Moyer, CTO at Kobiton. “We’re making device configuration a first-class component alongside the test case. This development not only enhances our current offerings but also lays the foundation for our future AI-powered testing solutions.”

“Kobiton is positioning itself as a leader in a market that is increasingly relevant given the trend toward mobile-first strategies and the expansion of digital transformation across industries,” said Sean Barry, CEO of Kobiton. “As the sole testing provider focused exclusively on mobile app development, Kobiton uniquely understands and can address the distinct requirements of mobile testing, further positioning Kobiton at the forefront of this critical industry shift.”

Mobile test management will be included in Kobiton Enterprise AI and Enterprise AI Lightning subscription plans at no additional cost.
