Leading companies obsess over productivity. They spend hundreds of millions of dollars, thousands of hours, and significant amounts of sweat gobbling up expensive tech, attending the latest-and-greatest keynote conference, and building the perfect "productivity" stack. But what happens when that tech crashes? What if those strategies can't be applied because your enterprise app is down? And what do you do when your stack falls over?
The average employee loses 22 minutes per day dealing with IT-related issues. And one small, seemingly-insignificant app hiccup can shred a hyper-productive day. Employees take 23 minutes and 15 seconds to recover from a task interruption. There's a reason that workplaces that create highly-successful digital employee experiences see their tasks being completed 30 percent more quickly; reducing downtime and glitches patches productivity leaks.
As a result, many organisations use some type of app testing solution. But with over 50 percent of enterprises adopting desktop virtualisation, what happens when those app testing solutions don't work in your new environment?
The Rise of VDI
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is a go-to solution for building scalable employee environments that meet business-user needs. Not only does desktop virtualisation let you create amazing business ecosystems that promote end-user productivity, but you can bake internal network security into every layer of the business-user experience without requiring on-site visits. In fact, VDIs are a nearly-perfect answer to the explosion of remote work and flexible/hybrid work schedules.
The cloud-based VDI market is growing at a staggering rate. And according to Citrix reports, 49 percent of current VDI users are also planning to integrate Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) into their portfolio. So, this web of VDI is growing larger, more complex, and significantly more dynamic as time goes on.
All of this is great. But it brings up a real issue. How do you prevent downtimes, glitches, errors, and the usual assortment of poor UX issues from impacting these awesome and secure virtualised desktop environments? Chances are, your traditional testing tools and workflows can't "copy-paste" into this new environment. So, what do you do when your ambitious IT modernisation projects are getting crippled by your testing and UX capabilities.
The Future of Work Meets the Future of UX Testing
Traditional app testing tools aren't agile enough to meet the demands of the modern integrated tech stack. You need the ability to swiftly test VDIs, hybrid apps, private cloud apps, on-premise solutions, mobile, desktop... you get the point. Your tech architecture isn't getting any smaller. And you want to keep up with your competitors. But launching that amazing new VDI without testing can come back to bite you. Employees are already flipping through thousands of windows each day. Do you really need half of those windows to be filled with errors, slowdowns, and glitches?
You need a testing solution that can instantly work in your VDI environments. Better yet, you need an agentless testing solution with no-code deployment, unparalleled usability, and a ton of industry-leading features.
Imagine this: testing your mobile apps, browser solutions, VDI environments, cloud and hybrid apps, and Windows apps all with the exact same testing solution. No more provisioning. No more slowdowns. And no more excuses for poor business-user experiences.
