Appium

Appium is well suited when you need to write automation tests with low costs. It's very simple to start up, configure and run. It doesn't depend on the application platform and is portable to many programming languages like Java, Ruby, etc. If you have a team of developers and SDETs and you need to increase the code coverage simply and fast, Appium is your best choice.

Improve performance while the app is in production. The init app development in planning, the testing stage is not an ideal scenario to use KDC yet.

Pros

  • Crossdevice: With Appium you can automate tests for Android and iOS both. There is no need to learn more than 1 language.
  • Easy: It's really easy to configure and use appium; it's very useful when you're testing strategy is based on "developers write tests".
  • Open Source: It's such a nice strength of appium, because you don't need to pay to use a good tool like Appium is.

Cons

  • Element browser sometimes is unreliable and has sporadic fails.
  • Appium running is a bit slow, compared to tests written with Appium and with Espresso or XCTest.

  • Manuals or instructions need to be streamlined with its high pricing.
  • It's a very intricate platform. It only performs moderately while the app is currently in operation.

Alternatives Considered

Appium is comparable with Calabash because it's the only cross-platform tool like appium. Espresso is only to automate Android tests and XCTest is only for iOS. We selected Appium because it solves a lot of automation situations and gestures of the mobile apps. We've used Calabash but since it has an uncertain future we decided to migrate to Appium.

We are using KDC to migrate EPIC applications. So far, we are using it for our projects, billing and finance apps. We are also working on extending it to other departments. It is being used by an entity (TSO).

KDC got the best score in the PoC.

Return on Investment

  • Improvement in Release Process Speed
  • Reduce the Manual Testing and Manual Testers team

  • Positive on ROI. I'm constantly utilizing Kony since it's a robust tool capable of publishing.
  • It also shares prototype creations of apps in a highly intuitive and customizable environment. It provides a preview of apps in real-time. Collaboration is seamless. Important functionality includes smartphone features (without any written code involved) and accessibility to a browser, maps, and SMS.
  • Trying to understand the user manual can be challenging since there are way too many features available. All of them aren't really necessary for beginners. And they've yet to offer them in a "phased" approach.
