In order to successfully deliver new functionality and secure the quality of the existing functionality, CTG used a combined manual and automated testing approach. CTG proposed automating functional test scripts and introduced continuous test builds to reduce the manual regression test effort after go live. Using this tooling and methodology not only decreased the amount of manual work, but also fundamentally increased the quality of the released code for business-critical processes.
To ensure that new projects were successfully integrated with third parties, CTG advised the use of a Requirement Traceability Matrix so possible functional gaps could be traced early in the development process. This also increased the understanding of the business processes and improved the quality of the manual tests themselves.
This project resulted in maintainable and portable automation scripts; continuous testing in several environments; ability to identify regression before delivery to customer; stable system and working software; improved customer satisfaction and relationships; and more.
