Centrify Leverages Testing Platform to Achieve An 80% Automation Rate

Centrify
Centrify worked with LogiGear to seek a standardized approach to functional testing, reduce technical debt, and maintain test scripts in order to increase automation coverage with each new build. LogiGear automated a number of existing tests, during an initial pilot program and provided training to all of the teams in order to meet Centrify’s objective. The outcome was a complete test automation framework that enabled Centrify to align software development and testing groups, unite test designers, testers and automation engineers, and integrate their onshore and offshore testing teams.

Commscope Implements Successful Automation Program with LogiGear to Expand Coverage from 0 to 90%

CommScope
CommScope, a networking company, relied on an on-shore testing partner using manual methods to test the core back-end functionality of its networking software. Because of the time-consuming nature and high cost of the manual testing service, CommScope chose to bypass testing the GUI component of its solution, having reasoned it to be "mature" and not subject to much change. CommScope's customers learned otherwise — with GUI bugs found in every new release. Ultimately, CommScope turned to LogiGear. Using TestArchitect, LogiGear automated over 4,000 test cases, expanded coverage from 0% to 90%, and automated GUI testing in only 20 machine hours.

Achieving the Full Potential of Test Automation

Achieving the Full Potential of Test Automation Whitepaper

This paper will first discuss the key benefits of software test automation, and then examine the most common techniques used to implement software test automation. It will then analyze prevalent reasons why test automation efforts fail to meet their potential.

Finally, this paper concludes with an examination in how using a keyword-driven approach to test automation allows organizations to avoid problems inherent in other approaches and benefit from test automation. Action Based Testing™, the latest methodology from the original architect of the keyword method, and the TestArchitect™ toolset will be presented as proven real-world examples of why test automation is the optimal solution.

Data-Driven Testing with Keywords

Data-Driven Testing with Keywords

From years of experience it has been proven time and again that test design is a major driver for automation success. Design becomes even more important when dealing with large amounts of data. The tools and techniques that help in managing and inputting data can help or hinder automation depending on test construction. When tests are well organized and written in the right level of detail, automated tests of all types can be very efficient and maintainable.
