Optimizing automation


Placing testing at the eleventh hour of every development is quite typical to organizations. And understandably so. As they grapple with heavy market demands, rising competition, and intensifying cost-pressures, people can be seen to resort to automation of the testing process.

While it is a proven technique with multiple benefits, a tradition approach to test automation can fail due to several reasons. For starters, it is programming driven. Therefore, functional testers struggle to develop automations scratch up, and are held back due to lack of sufficient programming and scripting knowledge. Secondly, automation in testing isn’t particularly high on ROI, and potential functional changes from sprint to sprint lead to higher maintenance cost. Other challenges that you may incur with automation testing include:

Integration difficulty with the development tool set

Agile roadmap does not provide complete product functionality during early sprints

Not suitable for prototype driven development

Leads to redundancy of effort for cross platform, multi-channel testing

Considering the current loopholes in the originally great idea of automation, Altimetrik has created a new wave of thinking into automation testing. AltiFEAT – the Framework for Early Automation Testing works in an innovative to fundamentally transforming your testing efforts.

Project Layer + Core Layer = AUT

Key features:

  • A structured non-programming based language to translate test scenarios into ‘script less’ automated components
  • Ability to build ‘script less’ automated components based on UI Prototypes
  • Ability to develop and execute tests using an Eclipse based interface, thus achieve seamless integration between dev & automation IDE
  • Ability to leverage continuous integration, run scheduled and moderated tests seamlessly, view reports
  • Ability to provide a single, tool agnostic framework for Web, Web services and mobile scenarios

With AltiFEAT and the expertise of our multi-skilled, multi-talented team, you can:

  • Improve test coverage and quality of testing early in the project life cycle
  • Empower projects to “left-shift” defect detection through automation
  • Reduce testing cycle time by 35 to 50%
