Keynote DeviceAnywhere, now known as Keynote Mobile Testing, is a solution made by Keynote Systems, Inc. that provides a service for planning, testing and monitoring the functionality, usability, performance and availability of mobile apps and websites.[1][2][3]

Key Partnerships[edit]


Keynote DeviceAnywhere provides an integrated solution for HP's Functional Testing (QTP) and HP Quality Center (QC). The add-in allows developers to run complex test scenarios from QTP/QC in DeviceAnywhere Test Center and DeviceAnywhere Test Automation for Smart Devices and receive the results back into QC/QTP.


The Keynote DeviceAnywhere and IBM Rational Quality Manager integration allows companies using RQM as their test management system to test their products on real mobile devices.[4] All results (script steps, test pass/fail results) are tracked by RQM and are available through the RQM interface (including screenshots of the mobile device's screen at every step along the way to help with auditing and/or debugging).


The company was founded in April 2003 by CEO Faraz Syed and CTO David J. Marsyla, who jointly created the first remote access service for mobile devices. It was backed by Motorola Ventures and France Telecom’s venture subsidiary, Innovacom. Keyur Patel, the Asian media mogul and billionaire, supported the company in its early stages and acted as an advisor to the CEO.
