Sogeti's Test Automation service improves time-to-market without compromising on quality. We provide you with a collaborative, accelerated approach to functional testing. By combining the effective use of test tools with our Rightshore® approach we define what can be automated, increase efficiency and speed up the return on existing testing tool investment.
Test Automation is the most efficient way to increase the effectiveness, efficiency and coverage of your software testing – and it is especially necessary and valuable when there is continued effort involved in running the same tests repeatedly to alleviate pressures on budgets and help you to achieve predictable quality.
Automated testing can support waterfall, iterative more agile methodologies, and can be used throughout most test phases. As part of our test automation offering, Sogeti provides you with the guidance and expertise to define what can be automated. Our solution ensures that automation supports your business objectives by designing your automation strategy to align with your goals. The key drivers of a successful test automation effort include; preparation, specialised skills, innovative frameworks, talented execution, control, and infrastructure management.
Our well-balanced approach includes:
- assessment of your existing solution
- tool selection, POC and implementation
- automated test script creation
- the formation of test plans
- automated test execution using our own, unique frameworks
All assets created, including automated test scripts, test plans and results, are transferred to clients for future use, to be rolled out across other departments and regions.
Model Based Testing
Model based testing is a methodology and IT toolset designed to accelerate the creation of test scripts. Using traditional methods, test professionals must manually create each test script and use case, a task which requires both testing skills and domain expertise. By using model based testing tools, firms can automatically generate test cases from models to describe the application, object or system under test. A single model can generate multiple test cases in far less time than it would take to write the same number of cases manually. Models can also be re-used to test other applications with similar functionality.
Wherever possible, Sogeti uses existing frameworks created in our Automation Centre of Excellence (CoE) to capitalise on both enterprise and open source tools in order to accelerate implementation, and speed up the return on your investment.
The Capgemini Automation Framework for Enterprises (CAFÉ) is our own patented automation framework solution that comes with guidelines, best practices and user guides for ease of use and maintenance. It is technology and domain independent and it provides ready-made reusable and repeatable scripts for various automation tools for both licensed and open source vendors cut across various technologies i.e., Web, Java, .NET, Siebel.
- Cost efficiency by up to 40% by increasing process capability without increasing resource
- Quality and productivity by allowing resources to focus on areas of new functionality and higher risk rather than testing
- Speed and time-to-market allowing for time to focus on tasks normally overlooked due to time constraints.
Many organisations invest in tools to automate testing but fail to generate the benefits. Sogeti’s partnerships with key vendors means we can help deliver value from these tools and avoid the cost of expensive 'shelfware'.
