A Spanish research center has developed a set of ICT tools for quality assurance (QA) in mobile applications which guarantees the quality of applications for smartphones through consulting, testing and monitoring of mobile applications for both developers and integrators, as well as for companies using apps. The research center is looking for a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
Description:
A Spanish research center, specialized in enhancing the competitiveness of enterprises and society through applied research, innovation and knowledge transfer has developed a set of ICT services for quality assurance (QA) in mobile applications.

This set of tools guarantees the quality of applications for smartphones through consulting, testing and monitoring of mobile applications for both developers and integrators, as well as for companies using apps.

The solution consists of a Platform as a Service (PaaS platform), 100% web-platform, multi-device and connected to real devices (over 1500 smartphones and tablets) to ensure compatibility and quality of the applications.

This PaaS platform tests for the overall performance and efficiency of the application which includes, amongst others, memory, battery, response time, etc. Once the testing is performed, a report with all relevant information such as general results, digital screenshots, and continuous video recording of the complete execution script and execution stats and graphs are delivered.

The Spanish research center supports the client throughout the process, from defining the required tests plans according to QA development policies for apps to, if necessary, finding solutions to all issues encountered. This support will allow the planning of more efficient and dynamic tests designed to detect possible incidents both as nonfunctional and functional level (usability, performance, accessibility, interoperability and portability), structural, re-test and regression test and test maintenance.

The testing strategy includes considering:
Best practices:
· Application of standards
· Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) and alignment
· Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) alignment
Static test:
· Complete review of the documentation (requirements specifications, design specifications, code, test specifications, test cases, test scripts, manuals and user guides or web pages)
· Static analysis (flows, code)
Risk management and incidents:
· Project risks
· Product risks
· Incident management (reporting, communication)

Some of the certification levels which applications can be tested for are:
· Basic certification: Quality certification pre-market which assesses app errors before submitting them to the app stores
· Advanced certification: Quality certification pre-market -Y- validation of the app´s main features. (The application works correctly in 80% of the main devices of the market)
· Premium certification: Quality certification of 80% of the functions in the 90% of the most used devices -Y- pre-market validation. Certification that the application supports up to 4,000 concurrent users.
· Privacy certification: The privacy certification provides a mechanism for validating the best practices according to the European regulation. The certification also provides a quality label issued by both organizations ensuring the tests and validations performed.

The research center is looking for a commercial agreement with technical assistance with partners from the banking, insurance, telecommunications and media sectors.
Advantages and Innovations:
This set of quality assurance tools allows to automatically certify the accessibility of applications and compliance with EU regulations, instead of manually testing it. Thus, it saves time, decreases costs and expert resources needed and increases efficiency.
Main advantages:
· 100% web-platform that consists of a PaaS latest, multi-device and connected to more than 1500 real devices to ensure compatibility and quality of your applications.
· Support for the preparation and definition of test plans included in QA policies to develop apps.
· Technical support during the preparation, test outsourcing and certification process.
· Proven improvement of app ratings (to 4-5 over 5), achieving new users and more visibility in markets.
· Ensuring the application efficient use of mobile device resources
· Testing and improvement of the app usability and reliability
· App performance monitoring and reporting
· Testing on 1500 real devices in a private LabTest
