QTP for mobile --- tool comparison QTP & Cloud testing tools (e.g. Perfectomobile, DeviceAnywhere) QTP& SeeTest tool Recorder No Yes Security Limited Fully secure Availability Limited (per hours ordered in advance) Available at all times (device at the tester’s hands) Can run tests from QTP Yes Yes Can edit tests from QTP Yes Yes Can receive reports in QTP Yes Yes Can test real physical devices Yes devices in a cloud connected remotely Yes All devices, all models Can test proprietary hardware No Yes Device is locally connected via USB No (remote via cloud) Yes Can test emulators No Yes Coverage of tested mobile phones All including legacy devices Only smartphones Phonoe, iPad, iPod Android Blackberry WindowsMobile Symbian
Cloud testing tools – such as perfectomobile ( www.perfectomobile.com ) and DeviceAnyWhere ( www.deviceanywhere.com ) are optimal when there is need to test all legacy devices as well as smartphones in terms of wide coverage of all models
Local, USB connected tools – such as SeeTest ( www.experitest.com ) – are optimal for smartphone testing in terms of price, availability, security and ease of work (recorder).
