Stormagedden: Preparing for a Digital Deluge

As the West Coast braces for a powerful storm, public agencies and utilities are preparing their online services to keep important information and assistance flowing. Communities will look online—most likely on their wireless devices—to websites, mobile apps, and email to see if roads are clear, classes have been cancelled, or when their local electrical outage will be restored. Events like this are reminders of the need for performance testing and synthetic monitoring.

Glinda the Good Witch

Real User Monitoring (RUM) can track all the interactions of every user so why in the Wonderful World of Oz would you still need Synthetic Monitoring? Aren’t real users better than simulated ones? Aren’t the agents “free”? Don’t you eliminate scripting by relying on the actual users experiences and save a ton of money in the process? The answer may seem a simple and obvious yes, but it’s actually no, no, no.

Quality at the Speed of Mobile

Here’s a dilemma: If you wanted to find a company’s mobile testing professionals for native or hybrid apps, where would you look? In a QA department? On a separate mobile project team? Development?

Get the Inside Scoop: DUM versus RUM

Most of today’s Real User Monitoring (RUM) solutions are really Delayed User Monitoring (DUM) Systems. DUM is useful, but it’s only backward looking. It produces excellent statistics and analytics – knowing what browsers, devices and time to first paint are all very useful for future proofing your infrastructure and digital properties – but it doesn’t allow you to act in real-time.

Do you have your phone handy? (There’s a silly question.) So what little number is sitting on top of the “update” button in your app store app? An 8? 27? 42? Mine is 23. That’s how many of the apps on my phone are pushing out a new release since I last updated my phone, which was only about a week ago.

Are You Ready for the iPhone 6?

The ever shifting landscape of mobile morphed again last month with Apple’s introduction of the iPhone 6 / 6+. In the first weekend alone, 10 million units shipped, breaking the previous device release record. In addition to a new set of features and form factor, both IT and digital teams now need to contend with a new OS (iOS 8). And the hits keep coming (hello Android Lollipop).
