Enterprises are finding out how vital mobile is—without a mobile presence, they will lose out on opportunities.  Many IT organizations are beginning to rethink their current strategy and instead seek the best option to deliver applications instantly to users. End users are tech-savvy and are putting more emphasis on the quality of the experience. With Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies becoming more common, corporate IT users are abandoning traditional devices such as PCs and laptops in favor of smartphones and tablets. They are then demanding the same experience they get with the gadgets used for personal needs.


Depending on a business enterprise’s mobile footprint, enterprises can expect four to eight times more activity on their back-end infrastructure with mobile than from typical Web applications. For example, in the past, when people travel they would check their email only when they had access to their laptop and a network. Now, they check it do so every few minutes. This is exacerbated by users’ lack of tolerance for anything slower than five seconds, resulting in endless refreshes. So, performance testing is even more important for mobile applications than it is for traditional applications.


The HP Mobile Performance Testing Foundation Service enables you to rapidly ramp up your mobile performance testing capabilities. This is possible by leveraging HP’s market-leading performance testing solutions such as HP LoadRunner and HP Performance Center with HP’s new network virtualization technology, and unparalleled technical expertise.


HP Mobile Performance Testing Foundation Service Benefits

Some of the key benefits of using HP Mobile Performance Testing Foundation Service are—

  • Mobile devices impose more latency than a PC, so a hybrid approach is recommended to achieve performance testing that uses simulators in conjunction with a few key mobile devices
  • Adding a WAN emulator to create variations in the communications layer helps to obtain true end-to-end transaction times
  • Performance bottlenecks can be easily identified by using HP tools for performance testing. This ensures rapid and seamless performance of mobile applications with zero downtime. This is because the root-cause of performance issues are identified and resolved


HP Mobile Performance Testing Foundation Services design ensures the following:

  • ­HP’s network virtualization is configured and integrated
  • ­   Automated performance testing script is created and load scenarios including network impairment conditions are identified
  • ­   UFT Mobile functional test script through plugin is created
  • ­   End-to-end performance testing using all installed software is monitored
  • ­   Results on the performance test execution are collected and analyzed
