HOW EFFECTIVE IS YOUR TEST AUTOMATION SCRIPTING?

An old-school QA adage goes: Your Testing is as effective as the document you refer to test! In today’s age, your quality assurance journey is as effective as the automation you can achieve in your delivery lifecycle. It is therefore imperative for us to have an effective automation approach. How effective is yours?

The more the world pivots towards Agile, Digital, and DevOps-based techniques, the more acute is the need to apply Quality Assurance to our solutions to make them effective in helping achieve that elusive Customer Experience. A Customer Experience that makes it intuitive, attracts customers, and prolongs their loyalty. Until a decade ago, Effective Test Automation was the goal, while Efficiency was also liked, but in the agility-borne industry today, Effectiveness of Test Automation is defined as a function of the Efficiency one can bring to the STLC process. Effectiveness is accomplished only when Test Automation is efficient in nature.

TESTING FOR MICROSERVICES

The IT frameworks are getting changed drastically. Software Industry has already transitioned from Monolithic frameworks to Microservices frameworks. In this Microservices transformation, Is the traditional way of testing is still valid? How do we test the Microservices?

TRENDS IN TEST AUTOMATION: FRAMEWORK, CLOUD, AND SCRIPTING

In this session, I am going to cover how the automation space is rapidly changing with the onset of technologies like A.I, D.S

CHALLENGES FACED WHILE DEVELOPING A TEST AUTOMATION FRAMEWORK

Test Automation, if done rightly can reap tremendous benefits in uplifting the quality of a product (AUT).

However, no automation tool can guarantee that if there is no solid test automation framework(TAF) in place. Test automation framework is a backbone of any test automation. And unfortunately, it cannot be generic. It has to be developed in-house to cater to AUT and internal QA/development processes. Various components needed for test automation framework can be found easily on different test forums. But what challenges, dilemmas do framework developers face while building one, need careful attention.

PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS IN CONTINUOUS TESTING OF CICD

Predictive Analytics and Continous Testing are now crucial in software testing. Traditional quality metrics are reactive and we need to have a way to prevent defects instead of fixing them faster, in a frequent, faster, and continuous manner. Analytics-based and Continuous Testing approaches are the next-generation QA. Organizations need to achieve both quality and speed which intensifies the pressure on engineering to foresee the kind of challenges and failures that might come up.

IMPLEMENTATION OF DEVTESTOPS IN A DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION PROGRAM (Co-Presenting with Vasikaran T)

Many organizations are going through digital transformation and are modernizing their IT landscape for the same. Typically such a modernization exercise involves adoption of digital application architecture like MEAN technology stack, SOA / Micro Services, Cloud Hosting using Agile Project Management and DevOps practices. Aim of such practices is to deliver incremental changes at a faster pace with high quality. Such a fast paced delivery would need integration of Test Automation practices as part of the core Agile & DevOps practices and are often referred to as “DevTestOps” in short. This paper presents a case study of implementation of DevTestOps for a large Europe based Transportation & Logistics provider.

The organization is a customer of Infosys and has embarked on a modernization program. This involves migration of Oracle Developer2K based client-server applications to modern n-Tier, digital ready Angular JS based application, to Optimize and Harmonize the booking process, Adapt Organization to the new processes and tool, Enhanced tool to simplify, improve and fasten the booking confirmation by bringing in microservices with the key objectives to Improve Productivity, Increase Quality and Speed up Turnaround Time. Implementation of DevTestOps has resulted in many benefits. Some of them are : Reduction of sprint duration from 3 weeks to 2 weeks, Deployment duration reduced from 30 mins to 5 mins, Faster feedback loop for any build, quality and deployment failures has increased the release frequency from 4/day to 12/day

QA CYCLE TIME ENHANCEMENT THROUGH NEXT GEN QA IMPLEMENTATION

This session gives an insight into how AI and new age automation collaboration can enable QA optimization and enhancement of quality in today’s challenging business environments where there is a huge demand for efficient and exhaustive QA owing to rapidly changing technologies.

REAL CASE STUDIES IN AUTOMATING SOFTWARE TESTING THROUGH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND MACHINE LEARNING

Conducting software testing manually has a lot of drawbacks, this leads to the urgency of tech-solution that is secured, able to work effectively and efficiently to automate the continuous process of software testing. RPA with AI/ML arises as to the solution that solves the issue, offering valuable benefits to companies with how fast it works, the cost it reduces, and its interoperability. An example of use where A.I. RPA can be applied beneficially in software testing would be in visual elements, prediction of software defects, prescriptive software testing, and many more. It is important to acknowledge real-life examples where automation successfully takes over the software testing process, to minimize the risks and challenges and optimize the result.

VISUAL TESTING WITH AGILE TEST AUTOMATION

Test automation is not just a very important piece in the CICD pipeline to give fast feedback cycle to the dev team on the health of the application, it is a software development activity that should be given equal importance as the product code. As test automation code should be consumed by humans thus the need for Readability and maintainability and scalability.

With all these criteria in mind, I am going to share with you an Agile BDD test framework serenityBDD that apply screenplay design pattern making QA automation more efficient in writing test code and how it can be used with imagium an emerging visual tool using AI to catch visual regression bugs and reduce code validation and reduce testing effort during the short sprint release cycle. In this talk, I will show a demo for both mobile app and web app
