Is HP Business Process Testing (BPT) a great framework for testing? I think so. Here are 9 reasons why, in no particular order:
1) You can build and run tests quickly and easily
BPT speeds up test creation, maintenance and execution through reuse of components.
2) You don’t have to be an automation expert to use BPT
Manual testers, automation engineers, and subject matter experts can all use BPT effectively.
3) People in different testing roles can all work together
BPT helps you document your components and tests, including screenshots, how they should be used, etc. This makes it easy for people with different roles and skillsets to share each other’s assets.
4) You can run the same test automatically and manually
You’re free to choose how to run your tests. And if you want to automate your existing manual tests, you can continue to run them manually until you’ve completed the automation.
5) You don’t need to build your own framework
Creating a framework is expensive and time consuming. You avoid all of that with BPT, which gives you everything you need out of the box, and is fully customizable so that you can tailor it to the way you and your organization work.
6) You can easily create and update tests for SAP, Oracle, and other so-called ‘packaged applications’
You can use pre-configured test assets such as those offered by TurnKey to save time and effort in testing leading ERP and CRM applications.
7) Testing can start early
Keywords and components can be defined before the application has been delivered for testing, so you can design tests earlier in the software development lifecycle.
8) You’re encouraged to plan your testing activities in advance
BPT helps you think about what you’re going to test, how you’re going to test it, and the components and other assets you’ll need.
9) BPT is fully integrated with HP’s test management and testing tools
