Press Release

Perfecto by Perforce, market leader in cloud-based automated mobile and web application testing solutions, today announced the release of its Fall 2020 Test Coverage Index, a biannual publication which analyzes emerging trends in web and mobile app testing, outlines mobile device, browser, and OS releases, and provides device usage data from around the world.

With fifteen years of industry-leading expertise in mobile app testing, Perfecto is proud to introduce this latest installment of the Test Coverage Index, its fourteenth edition.

Equipped with the data from the Test Coverage Index, teams can tackle a top challenge faced in testing today: strategizing their testing for the most complete test coverage possible.

Test Coverage Is Critical to Reducing Escaped Defects
With increasingly fragmented landscapes and never-ending releases for mobile and web apps, teams struggle with which permutations to test. Emerging technologies — such as Android APKs, Apple App Clips, PWAs, and foldable mobile devices — add a layer of complexity to an already complicated process. Teams unable to keep up face escaped defects, brand damage, and unhappy customers.

That is why it is critical for teams to strategize their test coverage, considering not just the platforms but also the scenarios to test against.

The Test Coverage Index helps teams do just that. By utilizing the latest data on mobile device, OS, and web browser usage from around the world, teams can ensure they conduct the most effective testing by prioritizing top platforms.

“Our customers rely on the Test Coverage Index to craft their testing strategies, minimize risk, and reduce escaped defects,” says Perfecto Chief Evangelist, Eran Kinsbruner.

“In addition to providing this insightful guide, we also host workshops for many of our customers where we analyze their test coverage to find gaps and oversights. We’ll be hosting several of these workshops this fall for some of our largest customers.”

Armed with index data and Perfecto’s consultative approach, teams can create test coverage strategies that mitigate risk and target the most popular devices among their audience. Additionally, device and browser release calendars allow teams to work ahead and prepare their apps for new releases.
