So introducing Kobiton. What is Kobiton? Who is Kobiton? What do we do? What do we offer? So we recognize that device fragmentation that is a big blocker to testing for our users and for anyone in the mobile application testing space.

Traditionally, you would have your devices locally and that may be 1 to up to 10 to 20 devices. Again, they're very costly to procure and very costly to maintain. Given the world post-COVID. We actually found that we're working from home. If I am on my team of quality engineers and I have my set of devices, but I know my colleague has a specific device and a specific operating system, I can't just go to the office and ask to use my colleague's device.

We are now separated by working from home, so it's very difficult to have access to that wide range of devices even within your own team. So at Kobiton, we really saw this issue and we really wanted to provide a solution that is DeviceLab management.

So for Kobiton, we have our public cloud that we offer where we cloudify real devices. In our public cloud, we have over 300 different devices and operating systems for Android and iOS, where you have the ability to, if you have specific testing need to hop on our public cloud, launch a device that is specific to what you need it to test, specific to the platform, specific to the operating system. And then you can perform your testing and you're not blocked and you're not at a lack of availability for devices.

Even further, Kobiton does offer automation for the mobile testing application space. I believe it's only around 10% of teams actually achieve automation when testing mobile applications, and that is a very low number given the complexity of real devices and the complexity of the applications that we are now finding ourselves developing. And so we can mainly test this all day long. And that's what we essentially are doing at the moment you're mainly testing, you have your never-ending checklist of testing to be done by the end of the software development lifecycle, and you have regression to be done.

Regression testing is going to take every single test case that you have and you run it manually and that can be so tedious being done time after time, version after version prior to releasing. And so automation is a fantastic way to really, one, expedite your testing and then two, save your productivity because you're no longer retesting the same test case over and over again. You can write one code or one scriptless automation for that test case to keep and retain it and then kick it off when regression comes.

So again, saves you time, saves you money, and resources, and increases your productivity when you adopt to automation in the mobile test application space. So with Kobiton, we offer the ability to come to the table with your own automation, to be run on real devices, whether that is XUI test for iOS or if that's Espresso for Android, or if you're leveraging Appium, that is kind of taking the both under the hood. As well as Kobiton offers, as I mentioned previously, artificial intelligence to run scriptless automation.

So this is no code automation where you run one manual session, one test case, one test flow on a real device, and our A.I will capture the entire test case to then be run on. You can then scale it on multiple devices thereafter. So once again, Kobiton really sees the problem of mobile application testing, where the lack of device availability and the lack of adapting to automation. And so we're coming to the table to really help our users, to provide more devices, to test on more real devices. Devices that are cloudified as well.

So if I am in need of my colleague's device, I can actually hop on Kobiton and launch my colleague's device rather than being separated from working from home. So you have access to far more devices and it makes automation simpler to achieve as well.
