Simulation Testing: All User Conditions on All Digital Platforms For True Digital Coverage

Your app may work in ideal conditions. But today’s users also need it to work in ALL conditions. Before it ends up on a user’s screen, an app should go through simulation testing against varying user conditions and environments across the right devices and platforms.

Go beyond the functional testing of features under generic conditions. Give your mobile app testing the intense, real-world user-condition testing it deserves with Perfecto’s real user simulation features.

Why You Need to Test User Conditions

The mobile landscape is highly fragmented and complex. It holds unexpected environmental conditions and interruptions that can impact application quality and performance.

Consider the varying quality of network conditions. LTE, 5G, Wi-Fi, and device and OS-specific issues all need to be tested, as do conditions such as multiple apps running in the background and location changes.

You need to test all user conditions prior to a release. This allows you to prevent as many escaped defects as possible — and all the extra work they add on.

Organizations find it hard to triage failures following an execution — with or without continuous integration (CI). Planning, management, and optimization of test cycles based on proper insights is a significant challenge for DevOps teams.

With real user simulation testing, teams can test for all conditions users will experience and eliminate the cascade of extra work that accompanies escaped defects.

Automate Persona-Based User Testing Conditions

Perfecto makes persona-based user condition testing easier. Use Perfecto’s pre-built persona templates or create custom personas of your own. Run tests across personas using common CI servers, like Jenkins, or test execution managers, like TestNG. Since Perfecto is a complete end-to-end testing platform, persona info is also integrated into your test analysis and reporting.

With Perfecto persona-based testing features you can:

  • Automate the lab configuration to meet desired end user conditions.
  • Align coverage planning to business priorities and the target market.
  • Communicate application quality risks in business terms.

Debug Your Apps Under Real User Conditions

Additionally, Perfecto allows DevOps teams to debug their apps under those same real user conditions that are tested through a 100% cloud-based remote access feature. This feature allows developers to launch real devices in ADB mode.
