# Need for cost reduction and faster release of mobile application

“The increasing adoption of social, mobile, analytics, and cloud technologies in organizations has boosted the demand for mobile applications. Mobile application testing services help IT managers to perform better and enable software developers to create and run software applications efficiently,” said Amit Sharma, lead analysts at Technavio for enterprise application research.

Cloud testing services minimize operational costs significantly, supporting organizations to shift from a capital expenditure (Capex) model to operational expenditure (Opex) model. This apart, testing as a service (TaaS) is driving the popularity of the mobile application testing services by offering on-demand services at minimal upfront costs.

Engineers use agile mobile testing services for faster development and implementation of mobile applications by providing a framework to test the applications and infrastructure. Engineers are also adopting automated services to conduct a detailed analysis after completing the testing process, said the report.

The report said selection of the right automation tool can streamline the entire mobile application testing process and focus on providing a high-quality product. The market for automated mobile application testing solutions will grow in tandem with the rising pressure on software vendors to provide product and business value.

The scalability of workload automation solutions is the major reason behind the successful launch of application and services. A majority of small and medium-sized businesses are implementing this technology to build and deploy applications in less time and at reduced costs, thereby driving market growth.
