  • 1. Improving ROI and Efficiencies of Software Test Case Automation
  • 2.
    • Why automate?
    • Test Automation challenges
    • Measure success of your automation
    • Advantage iLeap
    • About Impetus testing services
  • 3.
    • Complex and demanding applications
            • Manual regression testing is costly
            • Manual regression results in cutting corners
    • Agile product development requires
            • Lesser time to market through better test repeatability
            • Already developed features are ignored in manual testing as focus is more on new features
    • Fatigue sets into manual testing
            • Testers make mistakes
    • Manual testing gets expensive with time
    Why Automate?
  • 4.
    • Achieving positive ROI- many test automation initiatives do not actually result in a positive ROI
            • Scope, Objectives and Expectations have to be clearly defined and managed
      • Frequent product changes, enhancements, new features
            • Test cases can lag functionality being developed or they get out of sync
            • Timely communication of changes to the automation team
    • Communication / Collaboration between manual and automation engineers
    • Uniform and consistent automation platform not available
    • Training required for testing team to maintain the automated test suite
    Test Automation Challenges
  • 5.
      • At the onset clearly defined measures should be articulated and made a part of the automation strategy
      • Success of automation can be termed as positive if automation results in
            • Quick development
            • Low maintenance
            • Improved test coverage
            • Reduced test execution time
            • Improved test repeatability
          • Over a period of time the success criteria should be measured and trended
    Measure Success of Automation
  • 6. Introducing iLeap
      • iLeap removes manual inefficiencies and provides full support for Automated Software Testing
            • Simplified Automation that makes Test suite development as easy as writing manual test cases
            • Object repository is maintained in a separate file to remove redundancy
            • Action/Data values are maintained in Keyword Driven Tables
            • Core Engine converts the action sequences into Functional Automation Tool (FAT) compatible scripts with the use of internal framework components
            • FAT runs the scripts to execute automated test cases
            • Results are maintained in a separate repository with timestamps and build numbers
  • 7. Introducing iLeap
      • iLeap Key Features
            • Supports keyword/data/function driven testing paradigms
            • Data can reside in xls or other repository (future roadmap)
            • Easy migration from one test tool to another: Can work with any Automation Tool
            • Unattended execution with inbuilt recovery mechanisms
            • Supports all major functional automation tools and technologies including AJAX, Silver Light 3.0
            • Enable conditional execution feature to take care of complex real time business scenarios
            • Publishes the test results in easy to read format
  • 8. iLeap – Test Automation Framework
  • 9. Advantage iLeap
        • Why iLeap?
        • Quick development
            • Follows industries best approaches including Keyword Driven, Data Driven and Functional Decomposition
            • Pre built framework, resulting in a quick jumpstart
            • No Scripting - Rapid test development; productivity increases by up to 40%
  • 10. Advantages (Contd…)
        • Low Maintenance
            • Data Driven Testing- Minimizes tool dependency and empowers manual test engineers
            • Effective handling of incremental changes results in upto 60% cut in maintenance costs
  • 11. Advantages (Contd…)
        • Improved test coverage
            • Data Driven testing, supports MS Excel/XML to define data and action sequences - any test engineer can create automated tests; removes overhead of knowledge transfer within team
            • Execution Strategy can be planned w.r.t specific builds
            • Execution Priority can be defined at module/logical unit level
            • Handles database validation effectively
        • Reduced test execution time
            • Supports execution in unattended mode – enabling 24/7 test cycle
        • Improved test repeatability
            • Highly robust and scalable solution; tests can run repeatedly without changes
            • Effective recovery scenario to manage unhandled situation; effectively handles both application crash and tool crash
          • Web based ROI Calculations showcase the overall automation benefits for any application
