The festive season has finally begun and all the apps have started with amazing sales and more brilliant offers. The load on these apps during this time is at a high .About 20 million people are expected to shop on various e-commerce platforms during the festive sale next month, translating into sales of around $3 billion for players like Amazon and Flipkart, according to a report by research firm RedSeer.

How do we keep the App festive season Ready.

1. Right Target Device Set Of The Most Used Mobile Devices for the Festive Season

Retailers need to understand that their customers use a wide variety of different mobile devices and even desktop browsers are very different and can present the service in many different ways. For example, tablets vs phones vs desktop browsers have different hardware and software, different operating systems (and versions), and few dozens of different parameters that make the service and purchasing experience look different. The only way to ensure everything is Perfect is  by testing on all these platforms.

2. All Key Use Cases Covered With Robust Test Scripts

Testing can be a complex process if you have to quickly revamp those skills internally and building robust and reusable test automation that eventually makes sure that all critical use cases are covered in these critical revenue points is the foundation for all preparation efforts. Functionality and compatibility are the top things to pay attention .

3. Performance Statistics Of Your App Across Your Target Device Set

When developing a mobile app or website for your business, you’ll need to determine whether a responsive design is necessary, or if strictly a mobile template will suffice. In every scenario always have data to drive your decision and target your most strategically inclined audience, those which will truly appreciate the effort put into a unified experience.  Great Performance in terms of fast performance and robustness – will build great user experience and enables you to build that across different channels.

 

4. Performance Tests Must Run While Creating Synthetic Load Against Production Back-End Servers

Naturally, it’s not only about mobile app or website implementation, but it’s about the end-to-end performance of whole implementation. This may include complex back-end servers or other complementary connection points that provide information to consumers surfing and browsing on through your app/web. Make sure your performance tests reveal the actual bottlenecks in the real performance and this can be most reliably achieved when you use as authentic environments for testing as possible. Real devices, real browsers, real back-ends – all that your customers will use as well.

5. End-To-End Synthetic Monitoring Using Real Devices On Real Networks

The use of real mobile devices is the must. Without real devices, you’ll be fooled with all kinds of details, get wrong information about end-to-end functionality and your monitoring effort is vain. Furthermore, use of real networks is encouraged as otherwise, it will be difficult to track all root causes for failure. Automated testing drives better results here.
