  • “We enlisted IBM’s Leigh Williamson, a Distinguished Engineer and a member of the CTO Team, to guide us through the different ways that developers can go about app testing. Testing is not as simple as a developer trying to troubleshoot the native code on an app. Mobile apps are often vertical software systems with a variety of moving parts on the front end, in the middle and in a back-end cloud. Your code on the device may be running perfectly fine, but you would never know it because it is being corrupted from the back end that feeds it information. Or maybe some of the middle-tier services, like third-party SDKs, are running improperly. When something goes wrong, sometimes it is easy to figure out what is broken. Many times, you have no idea.”
