How global finance giant J.P. Morgan uses mobile app testing and automation to secure billions

J.P. Morgan has no fewer than twenty different mobile apps for its customers and staff, all ultimately designed to streamline and safeguard the movement of money.

Each app inevitably comes with risks: for example, the bank has an iOS app for its traders that authorises transactions of up to £20 million based on a single biometric login. Solid mobile testing and QA are therefore critical.

Responsibility for this testing rests on shoulders of J.P. Morgan VP Lee Crossley, who will soon be speaking at open(London) 2017 — an intensive one-day event focused on the latest QA methods and tools for mobile apps, games and VR.

Crossley’s presentation, “Rise of the machines,” will reveal his testing strategy and the two key beliefs that underpin it:Crossley

  • Testing must be automated as far as possible, while never completely forgoing manual testing where necessary.
  • It’s safest to rely on tools and workflows that stick closely to the source of iOS and Android, and which are therefore less likely to be broken by OS updates.

To hear more from Crossley, as well as from other mobile testing experts at companies like Google, Samsung, Rovio, Ocado, King and the Daily Mail, please book your place at open( London ) 2017.
