A Realistic Approach to Scalable and Cost-effective Cross-browser and Device Solution
Problem Statement: Current cross browser/device platforms are not built to handle the real scalability that software development design patterns require, in a cost-efficient way.
Most or all cross-browser platforms offer their services based on the number of parallel connections. The more connections you need, the more expensive it gets. Here you must choose quality vs cost. With the current providers, without spending in millions, you would not be able to implement shift left with full scalability. This is because the current platforms are not aligned to the best practices of CI CD pipeline like Fail Fast, Fail Often, Run Fast, Shift Left, etc.
The landscape is changing as well. For example, emerging “In App” browsers, country specific browsers, and the majority revenue generated by U.S companies is coming from non-US markets. Combine this with emerging new technologies like mac1.metal support in AWS, Container Orchestration, and we can build a a realistic solution to scalable and cost-effective cross-browser device solution.
