A Global Data Pool Provider Makes the Perfect Dive into Test Automation to Gain Speed, Efficiency, Quality, and Cost Optimization
The solution improves time to market, increases platform test coverage, and reduces the total cost of ownership.
The client is one of the industry’s broadest commerce ecosystems for the world’s biggest brands and a leading provider of trusted content to mobilize product content and reach buyers in a new way.
A 30-member global team was using manual processes to conduct testing activities. The company had multiple non-integrated systems running in isolation, with different teams performing tests on each system and subprocess therein. These manual and disjointed testing processes led to long release cycles and increased operating costs.
Ness conducted a test automation maturity assessment. We leveraged our Intelligent Engineering Maturity Model and assessment frameworks to determine the team’s current delivery and operational maturity and identified potential gaps and opportunities. These findings formed the basis of the blueprint for the next-generation QA automation platform.
Using NessQ, Ness’s test automation framework, as the foundation, Ness built test case automations to achieve 80%+ automation of the regression tests for item management and digital catalog portals. It was accomplished using various tools such as Selenium, Maven, Java, Node.JS, Rest Assured, TestNG, BrowserStack, Grid, Extent Reports, Pdf Box, Guava, and GSON.
Ness developed test cases for front-end and APIs for Item Management and Digital Catalog portals with 95% automation coverage.
As a result of this multi-stage test automation transformation journey, the client improved time to market by 80%, increased platform test coverage from 30% to 95%, and reduced the total cost of ownership by 80%, test effort per test cycle from 90 to less than 2 person-days, and compression test cycle time from 5 to less than 0.5 calendar days.
