Sun Technologies' Test Automation Framework Improved a US Furniture Retailer's App Performance by 42%
Whom we worked with
The Client is an Omni-channel retailer of furniture products headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, and has over 100 brick and mortar stores across 16 states in the USA.
Evaluated various open source and licensed tools and picked the right tools for the test solutions
Identified a minimal number of end to end scenario with maximum test coverage
Designed and Developed a Hybrid Selenium framework to tailor it to the client’s e-commerce and sales applications
Accelerated knowledge transition
Quick ramp up and ramp down of resources
Perfectly synchronized on-site/offshore set up
High Test Coverage
Continuous Process improvements
Comprehensive reusable test cases
Insufficient regression testing coverage using a manual approach
No Dedicated QA automation team and hence no QA process followed by client
The client was using an eCommerce platform built on legacy technology and had several internal functionality gaps due to which it failed to complete the online orders successfully
Reduced testing life cycle time
Increased test coverage to 100%.
Record time product releases.
Test automation resulted in regression run test reduction from 20 hours to 4 hours
Ensured that quality is engineered into the application right from the beginning of the development cycle. This strategic shift resulted in early detection of up to 70% of the defects in the SDLC, leading to a 35% improvement in the application’s quality. We enabled 100% traceability to facilitate both backward and forward tracing of requirements through defects and vice versa
How we helped
Assessed the requirements, tools, and processes involving automated testing for their applications and presented a high-level test plan
Our test automation framework countered the lack of automation in the sprint cycles
Over 282 test automation scripts developed so far for component-level testing, we implemented the shift-left approach for performance testing the web application
Implemented Test automation for regression run tests.
Ability to run test automation scripts with just one click (using a batch file)
The performance engineering approach of our testers made sure that quality is engineered into the application right from the beginning of the development cycle.
Provided a Dashboard/Web UI to control all the aspects of test automation like selecting environment, application, test cases, test data set, and so on
