Using BDD to Test a Robotic Process Automation Solution

In this session, Mario Matthee shares insights into a real life project that was completed by DVT. DVT’s testers were responsible for the testing of a new investment bot, and in the process we faced many challenges: distributed teams, being too agile, red tape (banks have plenty of this), complex financial models, ever-changing requirements and more.

Mathee shares the story of how his team took DVT’s first bot live using behavior-driven development methodology and a mixture of manual and automated testing. You will learn that BDD is not as scary as it is made out to be, that there is a place for manual testers in BDD, that you can be agile and still work in your own way.

  • How Investing in an E2E Data Quality Strategy Ensures “Decision Integrity” Dec 17 2019 2:00 am UTC 33 mins
    Ryan Burlage Global QA Manager, Aegon Asset Management, Elise Carmichael, Enterprise Evangelist, Tricentis
    Testing is usually an afterthought in Agile transformations — but not at Aegon. When Aegon embarked on a SAFe transformation, they made it a priority to re-evaluate their testing approach. Teams of manual testers were being caught up in lengthy ‘stare and compare’ sessions and realized that they would always be several steps behind as the rest of the development cycle moved onto Agile practices. So they brought in test automation while working hard to gain buy-in from senior management as well as fellow testers.

    But in the financial industry, having your interfaces operating flawlessly is just the start. If the underlying data is even slightly off, this could quickly compromise investment and management decisions. To ensure that the accelerated pace of change did not increase their risk exposure, they decided to also implement an end-to-end testing approach across all layers of their data warehouse environment.

    Join this webinar to learn more about Aegon’s testing transformation, and how they:

    - Overcame pushback during the rollout of new processes and tools
    - Tackled the main challenges of BI/data warehouse test automation
    - Cut testing time for 100+ test cases from multiple weeks to just 60 minutes
    - Rapidly assessed how upgrades to core systems (PAM, Oracle, etc.) impact core business transactions as well as the underlying data
  • Agile Testing in Regulated Environments: Challenges and Best Practices Dec 10 2019 2:00 am UTC 41 mins
    Ryan Yackel, Product Management, Tricentis Jason Secola, Support Sales Manager, Tx3
    Traditional electronic signature approaches don’t work when Life Sciences companies adopt Agile and DevOps.

    Testing regulated applications has long required programmatic process controls with electronic signatures. Now, with the shift to Agile processes and DevOps tools, many organizations are attempting to apply traditionally rigid governance practices within processes and tools architected for a much faster, more flexible paradigm. This is a risky approach.

    Watch our on-demand webinar as a panel of Life Sciences and Agile testing experts explore the top challenges and best practices associated with testing regulated Life Sciences applications in Agile and DevOps processes. We cover:

    - How to adopt a data-driven approach to computer systems validation (CSV) for a balance of speed and governance
    - How to take a practical approach to applying the “right” balance of programmatic process controls
    - How Tricentis and Tx3 Vera work together to help you achieve Continuous Testing that meets regulatory requirements

  • Achieve Intelligent Test Execution Nov 20 2019 2:00 am UTC 52 mins
    Adam Satterfield, Director of Testing and Quality, Anthem
    Testing teams can spend up to 80% of their time on regression testing. While verifying existing functionality is critical, business leaders are often more concerned with the new features that will give their software a competitive edge. But when they see UI at the top of the test automation pyramid, many leaders incorrectly assume that there will be little time left to verify high business value features.

    In this webinar, Adam Satterfield shares strategies for eliminating these misunderstandings and reconciling business priorities with what ties up QA resources.

    Join this webinar to learn:

    - Key questions to ask business leaders before any build begins
    - How to define test suites in a way that both prioritizes business impact and saves time
    - The value of testers’ feedback during build output and unit test reviews
    - How Adam’s team streamlined test case execution using tags and build server functionality

  • Building Resilient Cloud Load Tests for SAP Fiori Recorded: Oct 23 2019 45 mins
    Kevin Dunne, SVP, Strategic Initiatives, Tricentis
    SAP promises that Fiori is the ultimate way to deliver an exceptional user experience on multiple devices. However, you can’t talk about the user experience today without addressing performance issues.

    Are your Fiori applications meeting performance expectations in terms of response time, concurrency, availability, and scalability? Do the enhancements in each update you roll out actually undermine the user experience that the update is supposed to improve?

    Join Kevin Dunne, General Manager of Flood IO, to learn how you can start load testing Fiori as painlessly as possible.

    You’ll learn how:

    - Fiori’s customization and dynamic nature complicate load testing (as well as functional testing)
    - A new browser-based load testing approach lets you reuse your existing functional tests for load testing
    - To start and scale tests without waiting on constrained performance testing resources and expensive performance testing labs
  • Forrester Research: DevOps Quality Metrics That Matter Recorded: Oct 16 2019 47 mins
    Wayne Ariola, CMO, Tricentis
    With DevOps, almost every aspect of application delivery has been put under the microscope and re-evaluated. Quality metrics have largely escaped that scrutiny…until now.

    Tricentis recently commissioned Forrester to research how 75 quality metrics are used and valued among 603 DevOps leaders and laggards. The goal: provide the software testing community an objective perspective on which quality metrics matter most for DevOps success.

    In this on-demand webinar, we’ll take a deep dive into the findings, answering questions such as:

    - In the context of DevOps, do the “popular” quality metrics like number of automated tests, test case coverage, and pass/fail rate really matter?
    - Which metrics are best suited for ensuring that continuous updates won’t undermine the very user experiences you’re working so hard to enhance?
    - How do your team’s quality metrics rank? Are you taking advantage of the ‘hidden gems’ or getting caught up in vanity metrics?
  • The Anatomy of an Agile Testing Transformation Recorded: Oct 9 2019 53 mins
    Elise Carmichael, Agile Evangelist,Tricentis; Ryan Yarckel, Product Management, Tricentis
    Agile testing transformations vary as widely as agile implementations. Some teams focus on reducing misunderstandings between developers, testers and business stakeholders. Others aim to assess the end-user experience across transactions that span web and mobile front ends, APIs and back-end systems like packaged and legacy applications, databases, mainframes, etc. And many want to accelerate testing so that it’s not constantly putting the sprint deadline at risk.

    You might expect software tool vendors like Tricentis to tell you that purchasing a tool is the answer to all these challenges. It’s not. No matter what kind of testing transformation you’re planning, it must address people and processes as well – but certain technologies can help you get there.

    Watch this webinar to hear Tricentis experts take a deep dive into what was involved in several successful agile transformations. We’ll cover:

    - Scaling open source test automation to balance autonomy with governance
    - Implementing agile test management to help you improve collaboration & communication across the software delivery pipeline
    - Connecting testing across front-end “systems of engagement” and back-end “systems of record” to assess the complete user experience

    Join industry veterans Christian Plaichner and Wayne Ariola as they share insights on the top challenges that enterprise quality leaders face when planning, adopting, and scaling testing transformations. This will be an interactive discussion, sharing real stories collected from various perspectives across the testing industry. You’ll learn how to:

    - Set up the transformation for success – including restructuring teams and modernizing processes
    - Avoid the most common pitfalls and mistakes
    - Spot signs that you’re heading towards trouble
  • Changing Your Organizations’s Perception of Testing Recorded: Sep 24 2019 68 mins
    Michael Bolton, Co-Creator, Rapid Software Testing and Ryan Yackel, Product Marketing, Tricentis
    Testing can be an afterthought or an important source of information for the business. Testing is not, and cannot be, quality assurance — but it can provide you with the quality awareness required to bring better software to market faster. To work with business stakeholders effectively, it’s vital that you clearly communicate testing’s role in supporting broader organizational initiatives.

    Join testing expert Michael Bolton in conversation with Ryan Yackel as they discuss common mistakes testers make when communicating to the rest of the organization. Hear Michael’s tips on:

    - Cutting through business-speak and technical jargon to get to the heart of the issue
    - More effectively communicating the value of testing
    - Getting the testing team the seat at the table they deserve

  • Why Modern SAP Architectures Require a New Approach to SAP Testing Recorded: May 2 2019 27 mins
    James Senecal, Director, Solution Architect; Tricentis
    IDC recently found that over two-thirds of SAP users are already planning their company’s future with SAP S/4HANA and Fiori 2.0. It’s no longer a question of if your SAP architecture will change; it’s a matter of when.

    As these SAP advancements are adopted, it’s proving increasingly difficult for testing to keep up. Testers face a number of challenges:

    - Automated tests architected for previous generations of SAP platforms must be rebuilt.
    - Existing testing processes don’t suit the new faster (and more fragmented) release cycles, with different components evolving at different speeds.
    - Within the SAP ecosystem, testing must address new technologies such as SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Ariba, and SAP Hybris.
    - Reinvented business processes commonly extend beyond the SAP ecosystem, including APIs, mobile, mainframes, and so on—but legacy testing approaches often do not.

    Watch our webinar, Why Modern SAP Architectures Require a New Approach to SAP Testing, to learn the fastest way to transition your existing quality strategies and assets to a modernized approach that’s architected for the latest generation of SAP advances.
