The low-cost and high-speed promise of simulators and emulators brings a glimmer to the eyes of many dev & QA teams. Used properly, they let you test earlier in the development lifecycle. But they have limits. They miss the expensive bugs that real devices don’t, raising questions:

  • When is it smartest to use emulators & simulators?
  • When must you avoid using them and use real devices instead?
  • How should you augment your overall test strategy as a result?

Watch this webinar, led by Best-Selling Author & DevOps Evangelist Eran Kinsbruner of Perforce, to understand how to build a robust mobile testing strategy that combines real and virtual devices to mitigate risk of escaped defects.

You’ll learn:

  • When & where to use simulators, emulators, & real devices.
  • Critical platform nuances for testing on Android & iOS devices.
  • Recommendations for optimizing every stage of the SDLC.
  • Plus, see a live demo of testing against both real and virtual devices in the cloud.

We are here to help you identify the right mix of simulators, emulators, and real devices to meet your mobile test automation goals. Get a custom demo to get a closer look and see Perfecto in action.
