Here are four ways instrumented testing helps companies deploy faster and more confidently.

1. Faster development outcomes with actionable intelligence

Via in-depth data and information (such as screenshots, recorded testing sessions, device and network logs) in tandem with application performance monitoring, engineers can quickly grasp user and network events that occurred before bug submission.

2. Identify problem areas and addressable trends better

There’s no second-guessing with instrumented testing. The app instrumentation SDK records the testing sessions and transmits vital data like network traffic, CPU, memory, storage, battery, device orientation, location, OS version, and language.

Risks associated with specified context are minimized, allowing patterns to emerge. From here, software development teams can compare results against those patterns. Not only does this permit QA teams to better identify problem areas, but it also leads to higher fixed issue potential.

3. Expedite debugging and issue resolution

All interactions are within the same context of testing—no clumsy, missing report information. Managers rest assured knowing the information is always there.

4. Utilize app instrumentation when dogfooding

To a certain degree, all serious development teams practice dogfooding. Yet, there’s nothing more frustrating than to learn testing solutions are not compatible with your product.
