Cute and sexy mini mobile app! How much are you willing to risk?

We see the mobile market growing!  As per Forrester “1 billion consumers will own smartphones by 2016”, and some start-ups may not think about the risks of not performing load testing. One of the issues that the start-ups face is time and budget as well.


How much are you willing to risk?


Definitely, most of these mini cute apps should be considered for Load Testing, especially if these mini apps support heavily business outcomes.

HP Mobile Testing @ Mobile World Congress 2012

Are you facing the challenges of managing mobile applications? Do you know if your app will function and perform correctly when it’s downloaded from the app store?   It’s a real challenge to keep up with the rate of change in the mobile world.   This week, we’re at the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2012, and the mobile buzz is vibrant. 



Happy Valentine's Day!

It’s a day dedicated to love. For some, an excuse to cut out from work early and spend time with that someone special (or perhaps look for that someone), for others it is the busiest, most chaotic day of the year. For some companies, Valentines Day is a make-it-or-break-it day for sales and services. It’s Black Friday, but in reds and pinks. After the jump, I'd like to share a story about the day. It won't get wierd, I promise.
