Our Approach to Test Automation

The current challenging business climate means investments in technology need to demonstrate efficiencies and drive productivity improvements. Effective test automation is a key element to achieving this. In today’s remote working and value focussed environment, we know that you need you to justify your investment with low risk and a high chance of success. At Ten10, we follow a proven approach that delivers business results directly linked with cost efficiencies:

Intelligent
Discovery

We examine your test processes, assets, technology, delivery landscape and the capability of your team.

Intelligent
Definition

We define a clear view of what is ready to be automated, what automation looks like and the value that can be achieved.

Intelligent
Delivery

We demonstrate an initial test automation delivery iteration, conducting a proof of concept. We also ensure that targeted tests achieve the most valuable coverage and are appropriate for automation.

Intelligent
Optimisation

We implement a framework and scripts providing robust, repeatable and maintainable automated tests that follow industry best practice.

Why Ten10

Ensuring an appropriate, best practice approach to test automation from the outset is essential to longer-term success and achieving the greatest value from it.

Our company’s breadth and depth of experience delivering test automation services ensures that common pitfalls and failures associated with test automation are avoided by:

  • Aligning test automation with appropriate test analysis to ensure that the tests to be automated are valuable and relevant, both for initial implementation and ongoing. This avoids the common situation where an ever increasing and costly test automation suite is run and maintained but the underlying tests are no longer relevant and valuable
  • Automating testing at appropriate levels in the automation pyramid, not just at the user interface level. This ensures better coverage and more robust and maintainable automation
  • Bringing together the wealth of excellent tools, libraries and frameworks already available, rather than building custom automation solutions
  • Considering maintenance processes and costs from the outset to ensure automation ROI can be achieved, avoiding the test automation ‘maintenance trap’
  • Adopting an ‘automation in testing’ rather than a test automation approach, ensuring focus on the wider test process is not lost in favour of too much focus on test automation as a ‘silver bullet’

Software Test Automation Tools

We have expertise in a wide range of open-source and commercial tools and frameworks. Our tool-agnostic approach means we always look to recommend the most appropriate solution to benefit our clients’ needs:

  • The latest Javascript-based automation solutions built around: Node.js such as CypressWebdriverjs and TestCafe
  • Mobile tools such as AppiumEspresso and EarlGrey
  • Selenium implementations and a range of frameworks and commercial tools including Cucumber, Serenity, Katalon, Ranorex, TestComplete, EggPlant and UFT/LeanFT

Whether the technology is web or client-server based, we know that test automation isn’t just about automating the UI, delivering API/service based automation and using tools such as REST-assuredPostman and PACT for microservices.

Our automation services also include the use of advanced techniques to remove dependencies and allow earlier integration testing, implementing bespoke service simulation and stubbing solutions, using tools such as WireMock.

RPA and test automation – Can and should they be used together?

What exactly is RPA (Robotic Process Automation)? How does it differ from Test Automation? And can the two be used together?

The technologies appear to be very similar and the underlying concept appears to be the same: automate a process that would otherwise be performed manually by human users to run whenever and as often as required.

However, re-purposing existing code written for testing purposes to perform business tasks may be significantly difficult in practice. Your business users may use many applications throughout an end-to-end process and your test tools will likely specialise in a limited range of these applications, such as web browsers. A long-running process, particularly with data that must be shared between steps, applications or even departments, may be challenging to implement.

This webinar will explore the differences between the two technologies and look at the tools and approaches you can use to deliver an automation solution successfully.

Unsure of where RPA technology and automated test solutions fit in your organisation?

We will explore:

  • What RPA is and its typical use cases
  • Test Automation and its applications
  • The pros and cons of both Test Automation and RPA
  • Challenges around maintaining automated business processes
  • RPA for Test Automation – is this possible?
