ARM tackles ServiceNow upgrade challenges with Autotestpro
The article says:
"To help it meet [the goal of invisible IT], ARM turned to Autotestpro, a London-based ServiceNow partner that provides automated testing, with the goal of helping clients reduce upgrade costs by 80%.
Autotestpro holds a repository of a ServiceNow user’s actual business scenarios, and then its test automation engine automatically validates these against a new release. It handles defect management by automatically creating defect records when a verification fails and automates the creation of documentation such as user guides to the new release."
Delighted to announce that the joint presentation between Arm and Autotestpro at #servicenow #know19 in Las Vegas has completely sold out with all available 322 seats now reserved.
Andy Smith, CIO of Arm, Tim Stacey, ServiceNow Product Owner and Paul Chorley, CEO of Autotestpro will jointly present "Invisible IT" said the CIO: The story of how we delivered it
Arm will present how they benefited from the use of Autotestpro to slash the time and cost to upgrade their heavily customized and complex ServiceNow environment saving over $100k per upgrade, and moving them closer to their strategy of #AgileDevOps.
Tim Stacey, ServiceNow Product Owner at Arm Holdings Ltd, will be presenting their 'Invisible IT' success story at the London ServiceNow User Group in London on the 5th February 2019.
Tim will speak about how Arm massively reduced their upgrade and release timescales, costs and risks using autotestpro.
Autotestpro are delighted to be sponsoring the event and looking forward to networking and helping ServiceNow customers get even more from the fantastic ServiceNow platform.

Autotestpro Ltd today announced that they have appointed David Rees in the role of CFO and Adviser, to assist in its growth strategy.
Paul Chorley, CEO of Autotestpro said, "We are delighted to welcome David to the team. With his wealth of relevant knowledge and experience he will be invaluable in the next stage of our company. We are finishing 2018 with a flourish of new customer signings, both in the UK and North America and 2019 is going to be a really exciting year for us. David is joining just at the right time to help us further accelerate our growth."
David Rees said, "I have known the team for a while and as part of the whole robotic process automation trend, feel Autotestpro is uniquely positioned to provide enterprises with a seamless testing environment for new product launch and upgrade cycles. The fact they have established footprint across three continents and multiple products in such a short period of time is testimony to the usability and ROI of the platform. We can look forward with confidence to 2019 and beyond".
David's appointment will help establish Autotestpro as a serious global contender in the provision of visionary DevOps , Test Automation and RPA solutions, for customers of enterprise cloud platforms such as ServiceNow, SAP and Salesforce.
After a very "full on" day one, Seamus Scullion summed up day two at the conference by saying "Test automation is really two distinct functions, firstly the creation & maintenance of an automated environment and secondly the actual task of test creation. Autotestpro gives you the first part right form the off, meaning testers can focus all their energy on the second part."
He went on to say "The main theme from today was that by allowing your testers to focus on using their domain knowledge in test analysis and defining test criteria rather than simply using them to maintain and execute a list of tests you leverage the greatest value from their efforts. To paraphrase Michael Bolton's lecture great checking is embedded in great testing but great testing requires much more. By moving acceptance criteria into actionable tests and checks we can help bridge the communication gap between development and the business at large".
“...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?”

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.
sToday's enterprise IT systems are typically made up of a complex integrated set of best of breed SaaS and bespoke web based system. Business critical processes operate across these platforms, carrying key data from one to the other, either using APIs or in the worst case 'swivel-chair' interfaces, with humans re-keying data from one system to another.
It is a big challenge to find an automated testing solution that is up to the job of testing the complete end-to-end process. Especially one that doesn't place more of a drain on already stretched and scarce ServiceNow developer resource to build and maintain the test scripts.
So it's no wonder Autotestpro is fast becoming the 'go-to' solution for organisations who face the challenge of robustly testing ServiceNow in conjunction with other enterprise cloud systems and web based systems.
Autotestpro offers a smarter approach to test automation. With its intelligent automatic script creation and patent pending approach to test automation, it is a game changer for speeding up the time to value for test automation.
Find out how you can work smarter at our stand at ServiceNow NowForum London - 17th-18th October.
We were asked this hundreds of times at our stand at Knowledge18 last week.
The answer is really simple and like all good things can be summed up in three points:
1. AutotestPro is build around Selenium which is the de-facto standard for web UI testing. But, we hide the complexity of Selenium behind an easy to use ServjceNow interface which is designed to be used by non-technical people. This saves your scarce dev resources from spending their valuable time coding automated tests.
2. AutotestPro automates the whole delivery life-cycle, not just testing. For example, AutotestPro automatically produces design and acceptance documents and user guides as knowledge base articles, saving valuable process owner and business analysts time.
3. AutotestPro enables DevOps with Continuous Integration Testing and Test Driven Development capabilities.
All of this enables you to bring to life the potential of ServiceNow.
