Have you ever heard term – “Slack is the new email”??
When we talk about DevOps with our customers, terms like “automation”, “speed”, “collaboration” and “tools” always dominate the discussion. Mobile teams want to “move fast and break things.”
The containerization of our services has helped us a lot to reach high scalability in tailoring and mass customization. They offer superior manageability, security and customizability for most innovative users.
In this blog post we are covering the basics and main benefits of Bitbar’s container technology. With the next ones we’ll cover what the containers contain for Android and iOS respectively, then we will deep dive on some advanced use cases utilizing the containers beyond mobile test automation and then, finally, we will be showcasing an end-to-end use case including also containerized backend.
The Mobile DevOps is a practice of bringing the different disciplines involved in developing, testing, releasing and operating software into a functional inside organizations – or by a team that works closely together. By bringing together developers (Dev) and operations (Ops), the team is able to continuously deliver their product based on continuous feedback and iteration. And as always, there are different practices, habits and different flavors of adopted company cultures that set the behavior for an actual process and daily doing.
In this blog, we’ll take a look at the most common and widely accepted Mobile DevOps ‘process’ with its steps and what those mean. In addition, the focus is to provide insights on how enterprises can get rid of ‘siloes’ inside their organizations for dynamic development, testing, deployment and monitoring.
Thank you all for attending our latest webinar – Exercising and Scaling Up Mobile DevOps in the Enterprise. Mobile DevOps is getting more attentions than ever before – Lots of enterprises have adopted or at least have been looking for the solutions to introduce DevOps process for the mobile team.
There has been lots of articles and discussion how mobile devops practices can be adopted, integrated with existing processes, and even how to make use of resources efficient and beneficial for organizations. On the contrary, there has been very little discussion WHY mobile devops can make a difference to organizations striving to enable their IT, operations and development, to be well integrated with their business goals.

Maximizing and providing the best possible user experience is the top requirement for all mobile related products – and the top priority for their developers. Today’s mobile users expect apps, games and mobile web work flawlessly regardless of location where they use those and how they use those. In this perspective monitoring a native app, game or website in production is important, but it’s even more important to get the right metrics out of that monitoring data, and understand how to build better end-user experience.
The Mobile DevOps practices and Continuous Integration/Delivery together enable Agile development. Basically all these together are fully complimentary. As we’ve been discussing Mobile DevOps is a methodology and a set of (good) practices where Continuous Integration/Delivery is more like an implementation of that. And for mobile app testing it has lot of great things to offer.
The most important things in mobile app testing are the efficient use of test automation (using real devices), the right test automation frameworks, and efficient bug catching/handling and notifying developers about those. When it comes to parallelism and concurrent, simultaneous test runs on real devices, that’s what test automation together with CI/CD system is all about.
In competitive world of mobile games, gamers aren’t really shy nor they will turn their faces away from problems they confront when playing mobile games. Instead, they tend to provide pretty straight feedback on issues, games and sometimes even non-related things – because of frustration and emotions around the gaming experience. In addition, there are significant differences on how gamers take your product in different countries.
The fact is that feedback from gamers DO get easily in front of hundreds of millions of other gamers – and that can impact on your revenue generation. How can mobile game developers tackle these challenges and how do Mobile DevOps approach come into play? And mobile game testing is done? We’ll scratch the surface of that in this blog.
According to various studies, many of retailers are still prioritizing customer facing programs over strategic infrastructure improvements, and choosing to invest in data capture for marketing purposes and pricing programs over mobile platforms and improved delivery. This is really a surprising finding as mobile-first initiatives are spreading across verticals and domains – and soon a significant majority of consumers use mobile web as their first data point to make their purchasing decisions.
How can brands ensure their quality criteria isn’t compromised and how to build better user experiences for customers?
