Functional Test Automation Project Success Story

Reduced Time Cost, Increased Efficiency, and Inreased Staff Skill Level

IT Ecology successfully implemented the eggPlant functional (ePF) solution at one of the biggest financial institutions in South Africa, allowing them to accelerate their testing efforts exponentially.

Initially they were taking over 2 weeks to manually test their regression pack (which encompassed over 200 process flows). Once we came in, we began automating these process flows immediately using ePF. This took us about 2 weeks to complete and once we were done, they were able to run this newly automated regression pack within a couple of hours.

The accelerated testing time allowed them to shorten their testing cycles substantially, leading to a quicker release of code into production.

It also meant that the testing team had more capacity for exploratory testing and freed up enough of their testing time so that we could up-skill their manual testing resources to be able to use ePF effectively within the scope of their various projects and applications.

By the end of our 1-year engagement, we were able to successfully automate 1000s of test cases (which included various applications, technologies and integration points), up-skill their testing team and save them months’ worth of repeated, manual testing effort.
