“...specs at Future Insurance are formulated by the entire delivery team, with primarily the business and QA working together to write executable tests in business level language.
This increases efficiency and eliminates a source of miscommunication in one stroke: why first write a specification on paper and later request someone else translate it into code for a test tool, when both can work together to define a single executable test in one step?”
This text is taken courtesy of #XebiaLabs ‘The Managers Guide to Continuous Delivery’ a highly recommended read for anyone wanting to implement Continuous Delivery and DevOps.
As far as I'm aware, autotestpro is the only automated testing solution in the world where you can do exactly this for #servicenow, #salesforcecom, #Sap or even your own bespoke websites!
Future requirements/tests are defined in autotestpro in language like ‘As an ITIL user I log-in, navigate to the Create New menu option in the Incident module, I select the Caller etc...’. - business level language your business users can understand, but behind the scenes these automatically create the fully robust and upgrade proof automated tests for you at the same time and with no extra effort.
Run the test and it fails just as it should. Complete the dev work, run the test again and it passes. Run the automated regression tests and they pass too - good, nothing else is broken. Press a button and autotestpro automatically deploys the change to the test environment and re-run the test.
Press another button and create a user guide as a knowledge article @with step by step instructions and screenshots with each step highlighted. Now you are ready to release this to production.
Deliver change to your cloud platforms in days, instead of months with autotestpro. You can do DevOps and Continuous Delivery right now.
