Enterprises realize the critical importance of efficient and effective test automation. Though automation is an efficient and reliable way of testing, it requires signiﬁcant time and investment to reap the beneﬁts.
Here is a story on how Mindtree built a meaningful test automation solution, that is simple to use and comprehensive in coverage.
The world’s leading provider of tax and accounting software needed a brand new suite of applications in .Net 3.5 to replace their legacy suite. The customer was under pressure to release the product faster and needed to take advantage of UI test automation. Automation requires expertise and time to understand the application, as well as write the test scripts. This meant that automation must be executed by manual testers, who have prior product knowledge.
Mindtree realized that a fundamental shift was required in the way test automation is being done today. We collaboratively worked with the customer to build an ‘UI Automation Framework’, that accepts manual test cases as input and generates automated test scripts. This innovative framework was designed with in-built intelligence, which signiﬁcantly reduced the dependency on highly proﬁcient automation engineers. More importantly, the framework saved signiﬁcant costs for the customer by replacing the existing commercial test automation tool.
