One question

Q: How do you assure mobile service quality?

A: What happens if one of your customers tries to access your application on his smartphone and it takes more than five seconds to load? Or if the page renders too differently from his laptop experience? Or service is intermittent when he travels? Studies show that he’s likely to take his business somewhere else. [You need more than] specialized mobile-device management software to monitor all aspects of your mobile application delivery chain—from the user device to the cloud to your data center—across a wide range of platforms and devices.
