SUS06-BP04 Use managed device farms for testing

Use managed device farms to efficiently test a new feature on a representative set of hardware.

Common anti-patterns:

  • You manually test and deploy your application on individual physical devices.

  • You do not use app testing service to test and interact with your apps (for example, Android, iOS, and web apps) on real, physical devices.

Benefits of establishing this best practice: Using managed device farms for testing cloud-enabled applications provides a number of benefits:

  • They include more efficient features to test application on wide range of devices.

  • They eliminate the need for in-house infrastructure for testing.

  • They offer diverse device types, including older and less popular hardware, which eliminates the need for unnecessary device upgrades.

Level of risk exposed if this best practice is not established: Low

Implementation guidance

Using Managed device farms can help you to streamline the testing process for new features on a representative set of hardware. Managed device farms offer diverse device types including older, less popular hardware, and avoid customer sustainability impact from unnecessary device upgrades.
