TI4Mobile: Test Improvement for Mobile
Mobile apps bring a totally different platform to life that varies significantly from any desktop application, not only in technology but most importantly in respect of user experience.
The success of a mobile app is determined by the needs of the end user. But what is the best way to involve the end user in the app development? And is the development organization
properly equipped to support this?

Specific knowledge and skills are required to perform successful mobile app testing. Polteq’s TI4Mobile maturity model provides companies an overview of their mobile app testing level and results in practical tips and ideas to support the company’s growth in the desired direction.
