Webinar announcement – “What’s new in HP’s automated testing suite”

For most IT organizations, the testing team is an extremely valuable asset in-charge of launching high quality and low risk products to the company’s customers. The automated testing team is perceived as one of the most efficient and cost effective testing team, consisting of technical testers with programing skills scripting repeatable tests with the highest depth and test coverage. As opposed to manual testing, automated testing can run at the same time on multiple operating systems with different configurations, look into an application and see memory contents, data tables, file contents, and internal program states to determine if the product is behaving as expected.

 

However, as the IT organization switches over to agile development using the scrum framework and applying continuous integration practices, this elite team really struggles with how to incorporate traditional automated testing strategies into the agile world.

 

On one hand agile practices and high levels of change increase the need for automation. Application teams should test more, test faster and test continuously. On the other hand, it requires testing earlier, even when there’s no GUI, even when the application is headless. On top of that, today’s fast pace of change results in complex multi-layer applications or composite applications with more integration points and embedded third party services and also a myriad of new technologies that are constantly introduced to the market. That raises many challenges for automation engineers.

 

Today’s challenges for automation engineers:

 

-       What’s the best way to test GUI and services repeatedly?

-       Is there an efficient way to test the end to end business process including the integration points repeatedly?

-       Which processes and capabilities to add in order to be more productive when testing mobile apps?

-       How to accommodate new technologies seamlessly? 

The biggest question of all is how can automated testing remain efficient and not become too expansive or difficult to implement in this new world of application development?

A personal invitation to join HP UFT 11.5 launch webinar

 

I’d like to invite you to join the “What’s New” webinar for UFT 11.5 to discover a new world of modern test automation, a world where test automation is based on visualized and graphical operation instead of scripting, a world where test automation addresses all levels of software development, both services, headless and GUI and a world of many new cool shortcuts that make software testing more productive and fun. We took software automation to a new level by automating everything that is too time consuming so software engineers would be able to focus on what really matters.
