In many organizations, software testing remains a cumbersome, manual, error-prone process that results in extended testing cycles. This causes delays in application releases, and often results in software that fails to meet quality standards. Test automation helps minimize that risk and ensures quality, while dramatically speeding time-to-market. Automation can improve test coverage and yield higher quality products. It can potentially save thousands of test execution hours and provide significant cost savings. However, some organizations continue to face challenges in realizing the full potential of their acquired test automation tools. The complexity of automation technologies and the lack of in-house expertise needed to implement and manage these powerful automation tools are key reasons why. This often results in poor automation practices and frustrated resources. Test engineers end up spending too much time doing script maintenance and fixing automation assets, rather than actually executing scripts and realizing the ROI of test automation.
Northway Solutions Group understands these challenges. We have developed an automation methodology that simplifies the overall automation and automation asset management process. We use a framework driven approach to ensure that you get the most out of your automation investment. This framework based automation approach is built on three key principles – Reusability, Maintainability and Expandability. Using a software development approach to automation, we create reusable components to minimize redundancy. We design the framework for extreme script maintainability, thus minimizing time spent in updating scripts and other automation assets when application changes. We know every client’s environment is different. We follow a systematic approach that helps us understand every client’s specific testing needs. This allows us customize a solution that fits their environment. This structured approach has resulted in a high success rate in providing automation solutions that reduce time, costs and risks associated with deploying them within the Enterprise.
