Let us tell you why..
All of us are terrified of bug identification...
Most modern software developers like coding and leaving things for the test team to complain. Most test teams are inexperienced and have no concept of quality, what should be and is not etc etc. As a result many defects - or as some software providers often say, features of the software are left to hit the end user. The naïve test engineer may raise a suspect bug but the developer will often take this personally and have a vendetta against the test team and other such issues which result in a reluctance to report bugs.
Bug identification, defect reporting and tracking are essentially the radar of software development. Without these key processes your reputation as a software development shop will plummet. Your internal costs will soar and your ability to get a quality product to market in a timely fashion will be severely hampered. You never get a second chance to get it right first time and in the climate of just in time delivery we often see that delivery is just too late.
Automated testing is often seen as being restricted to regression testing where returns can be easily demonstrated to management. However with the right approach it is possible to apply an approach to manual test script development which permits automated execution by an enhanced QTP Fast Track Solution framework.
Strange as it may seem, the additional work required to automatically test any computer solution is often significantly less than that required to manually test the same system. There may of course be exceptions due to bizarre resourcing situations but in most cases we have found this to be the case.
Pitfalls when working with Manual testers.
It is often difficult, if not impossible to prove that the manual tester did the testing required, on the appropriate test environment and correctly.
Defects raised often have missing evidence and developers are unable to reproduce the problem leading to longer times to achieve quality gate requirements.
Automated testing overcomes all these uncertainties and gives the software development manager a greater confidence. Depending upon the extent of the defects and the impact, manual testing will require the whole series of tests to be repeated - and this may continue for a number of cycles as other defects are noticed.
Automated testing using an appropriate test framework provides the software development manager with a powerful enhancement to his QA arsenal. It gives him a confident tool to quickly run selected tests as well as many of the steps required to prepare for testing. Journals can be made and audits taken permitting more powerful defect diagnosis.
Let's begin with an eternal truth that will never change; most of us fail to succeed because, quite simply, we fail to act. So why is that? Unfortunately most of us are held back by fear: fear of looking foolish, the fear of “what they might say”, and the fear of making a mistake. And automated testing is no exception.
It doesn't matter HOW much theory you know, if you DON'T apply it, you can have no chance of success. We are in a battle against time and we have to repeatedly make ground (test coverage) fast.
The only way is to make sure your test agent, whether manual or automated, carries out the task perfectly and as fast as possible. When the pressure is on mistakes are made and often the evidence of correct testing of the AUT is marred resulting in delayed software delivery.
Unless You take ACTION now, You will never see the quality gains your competitors will see and the benefits of faster delivery of a quality tested product to market will be lost every product cycle. The sooner you start the sooner you will recieve the rewards -
But it's not about what we think...
What do other Software Implementors say about our Products?
Just in case you didn't realise, we've not only been successful software developers for years, but we've also helped other software developers improve their product quality, reliability and time to market.
Here's just a flavour of some of the feedback we have received over the recent years.
The QTP Fast Track programme has certainly given us additional impetuous and courage to press ahead. We can see for certain that we are really making significant progress now - instead of producing unending test scripts needing continual maintenance. Things are going really well.
Just a quick note to thank you for your input to my project. Peter and I are both confident that it is a valuable contribution you have made, and we will be able to progress things here to have a more automated testing regime.
Well, you said it could be done and you've done it. Mercury experts thought QTP was unsuitable for our rapidly changing web sites, but you made it all fly. Simply Brilliant and you integrated it all with Quality Centre. Amazing.
We can't believe why your solution hasn't been used before. Now we see it in action there simply isn't a better way to proceed. Of course, as you say, specialist testing can be done without the framework, but we want to use it for that too!
This is true Keyword driven testing as it was meant to be.
Who could have believed our test productivity could have quadrupled almost overnight. No serious application developer should be without your testing frameworks.
Clients include: Reuters, BA, Ufi, BP, Shell, Nortel, BHI, MFI, DfT, etc
