The European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) is a funding organization for the creation of research networks, called COST Actions. These networks offer an open space for collaboration among scientists across Europe and beyond, thereby accelerating research advancements and innovation.
COST Association was looking for a service company that could help them improve and structure their testing process, deliverables, and overall quality of their core application. The main project objectives that were set at the start of our journey were the following:
- Assess how software testing (and software quality) methods are implemented at COST
- Identify the most important and beneficial areas for improvement
- Develop three Project Improvement cards to further explain how the improvement could be approached
- Perform a Proof of Concept (PoC) with a test automation tool to validate that the application is suitable for automation to allow for greater testing coverage.
In mutual agreement, we decided to perform a high-level assessment of COST’s software testing practices, as well as a PoC for test automation using Ranorex. Both of these services are part of CTG’s suite of comprehensive Testing Solutions. The focus of these initiatives was the e-COST platform, the core application that supports all of the organization’s activities, like COST Open Call or COST Actions.
