Today’s organizations with DevOps culture have ‘positive challenges’ when it comes to availability of Mobile DevOps tools. Not too long ago this segment was pretty static and didn’t provided any of agile tools that would help getting meaningful results out of the monitoring efforts. In addition, scaling up and monitoring with real networks has bring benefits of getting in shoes of the real end-user, but without asking them to be your test monkeys, use the exact identical environment to monitor mobile websites and apps.
In this blog, 4 upcoming trends in synthetic mobile monitoring are highlighted and discussed.
Mobile DevOps has significantly different requirements, expectations and criteria for usefulness when it comes to monitoring mobile performance and general health-level of mobile apps, websites and APIs. Those more traditional monitoring tools and methods have hard times to provide useful and reliable data about performance and user experience. Whereas Mobile DevOps approach can be highly useful to integrate with, it breaks down barriers between mobile development and operations, and also provides clarity to process and steps for mobile product development lifecycle.
We’ll take a look at how monitoring will be used while mobile apps and websites are under development, what the critical metrics organizations will get during the product development process, and how synthetic mobile monitoring can be an integral part of the DevOps activities.
When it comes to measuring mobile application and website health, the most basic – but also the most important – metrics are availability and performance. These metrics can be obtained by monitoring app, website or API running in real conditions, utilizing real networks and connection to back-end services. But how can users get their app, website or API running across the globe without putting that in hands of end-users?
By monitoring your mobile app, website or API either by running synthetic tests periodically or by looking at end user experience on aggregate level using real user monitoring (RUM) provides comprehensive understanding of health of your mobile product at any given point in time.
On last week’s blog post we covered the second stage of getting to holiday readiness – Performance and Load Testing. This week we will cover how you can take the test automation assets created in Stage 1 and Stage 2 and utilize those to create automatic synthetic monitoring to ensure that your end-to-end mobile service performs throughout the whole Holiday Season.
