Define And Demonstrate

Accelerate your test automation journey with Ten10’s Automation Pilot, delivered by our highly experienced test automation Engineers and which quickly reviews your existing approach to regression testing (manual or automated), any automation toolsets and their implementation, your team’s capability and the drivers behind your desire to automate. The Automation Pilot takes these inputs and defines an automation approach that is tailored to your organisation, implements new or leverages existing tooling and develops a small representative sample of tests to demonstrate efficiency and effectiveness.

Ten10’s Automation Review will identify prioritised, pragmatic and proven solutions to your automation problems and pitfalls. Adopting a pragmatic and practical approach, Ten10’s technical and strategic test automation Engineers will evaluate your current approach to and implementation of test automation. They confirm what is working well, identify automation assets that can be leveraged and reused and define an improvement roadmap to transform your test automation and ensure it delivers a return on investment.

Ten10 is tool agnostic – we do not favour any tool vendors – our automation Engineers have expertise in a wide range of open-source and commercial tools and frameworks and are able to independently evaluate your toolset to confirm whether it can support your current and future test automation needs. The evaluation will consider value for money, flexibility and adaptability to your anticipated changes, as well as identify any features that could yield increased efficiencies and more effective test coverage. If the current toolset is not fit for purpose, we will propose alternative options that align with your needs.

Deliver

Whether you are looking to introduce continuous test automation as part of a wider Agile DevOps process or to replace costly and error-prone manual regression testing, Ten10’s test automation solutions support our customers at all stages of their test automation journey. Our test automation Engineers can:

  • Implement, script and maintain test automation suites which provide continuous quality feedback allowing your test analysts and business SMEs to focus on high value tests
  • Embed within Agile and DevOps teams and adopt an ‘automate first’ approach
  • Build and support your internal automation capability, upskilling your team members and leaving you with a highly effective test automation legacy
  • Innovate and adopt a pragmatic approach to the use of the latest tools, techniques and technologies and integrating with CI/CD pipelines

Our team has exceptional skills and experience in the latest Javascript-based automation solutions built around Node.js such as Cypress, Webdriverjs and TestCafe, mobile tools such as Appium, Espresso and EarlGrey, along with many Selenium implementations and a range of frameworks and commercial tools including Cucumber, Serenity, Katalon, Ranorex, TestComplete, EggPlant and UFT/LeanFT.

Test automation isn’t just about automating the user interface, we also deliver API/service based automation using tools such as REST-assured, Postman and Pact for microservices. Where appropriate, we use advanced techniques to remove dependencies and allow earlier integration testing, implementing bespoke service simulation and stubbing solutions, using tools such as WireMock.

Our ‘Tenology’ methodology and framework provides ready made frameworks that can accelerate your test automation, whilst being tailored to your business needs.

Why Ten10

Ensuring an appropriate, best practice approach to test automation from the outset is essential to maximising the value, delivering a return on investment and ensuring long term success.

Ten10’s breadth and depth of experience 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 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’
