The technologies of mobile development can threaten to undo the gains of an enterprise’s DevOps culture.
USB-Connected, In-hand Devices Inhibit Collaboration
Today’s dominant mobile development and testing models rely on one or two devices tethered by USB to an engineer’s workstation.
As a result, screen-sharing, remote device control, and the rapid access to production-equivalent environments that virtualization brought to desktop web development are difficult and mostly forbidden in mobility.
These barriers can limit engineers, designers, and customer support representatives to an incomplete set of a few, in-hand devices and tools. An inability to effectively collaborate can create the very silos that DevOps works to eradicate.
Break Down Department Silos and Give Dispersed Teams Easy, Secure Device Access
How can these barriers be broken? A tool that provides mobility support for continuous integration and collaboration is needed, allowing developers and operations alike to access production-equivalent devices at will. And deviceConnect can do just that.
Support for continuous integration means that setting up customer-mirroring environments (device, app version, and operating system level) can be completely automated.
Improved collaboration capabilities mean that development, designers, testers, and operations can work together to eliminate surprises when the app deploys.
Un-silo and discover the benefits of DevOps for mobile app development with deviceConnect.
