Challenger banks and financial apps like Monzo, Starling and Revolut might seem like a natural step in the digital revolution, to today’s consumers. Similarly, Netflix and Spotify have disrupted the film and music industries and set digital delivery and a totally in-app experience as the norm. So it hardly seems surprising that banking and financial services have followed the suite – and new apps with fluorescent bank cards seem to launch every week.
Over a year back, we rebranded Testdroid and introduced Bitbar Cloud (bitbar.com), transforming from a mobile test automation solution to a unified mobile DevOps platform and making Testdroid step back as a critical technology and driver of continuous testing for our customers.
Today, we are excited to announce that our cloud portal is now accessible with a new domain cloud.bitbar.com. All the products, services, etc that you are using every day will stay as they are with no changes.
When everything is firing on all cylinders, DevOps can be awesome. By automating every application build – from development and QA to pre-release testing and eventually to production – DevOps lets you release new code as frequently as your business needs to instead of continuously delayed releases. This, in turn, enables you to resolve issues and make important improvements with lightning speed, keeping you agile and helping you meet customer needs (and expectations) as well as respond to new challenges in a competitive landscape.
We are excited to announce that Bitbar Testing Cloud, the most scalable mobile app testing solution, is now available on Amazon Web Service (AWS) Marketplace. The simplified, automated and accelerated purchasing process for Bitbar Testing on AWS Marketplace enables faster time-to-value services for mobile Dev & Test teams to automate mobile tests at scale and accelerate the delivery of high-quality mobile apps to end users.
Transforming a company from Agile Development to Continuous Delivery by deploying a high degree of automation into its delivery pipeline, is called DevOps nowadays. DevOps is short for Development and Operations – the two departments that generally operate with two very different goals. Software Development teams are continuously writing new and better code to achieve fast iteration cycles. They need an environment with improved and instant feedback loops on new innovations. Conversely, Operations teams are all about keeping production software stable and working, no matter what. They need an environment that alerts of any deviations in production. In general, the fewer changes to the environments are introduced, the better.
Here at Bitbar we solve large problems with mobile development and quality assurance. From being able to tackle the device fragmentation issue to providing a means for thorough agile continuous integration testing, Bitbar Testing has become a great solution for companies tired of slow dev cycles and growing QA costs with inadequate returns. Companies need to scale their testing coverage, but at the same time accelerate feedback on bugs to development. That’s a big catch 22!
