Two distinct business functions being transformed were:
The challenges were multifold like:
CoreFlex conducted a consulting-led due diligence on the QA processes and overall assessment of automation requirements and what could be done to enable program’s success!
An overarching test strategy – a living process document that enables teams to follow Sprint planning, automation planning, test execution runs, test run reports and analysis and continuous improvement process through the retrospective reports for each sprint.
Established Dev-Ops model using scrum philosophy and enabled automation at various levels of the process, development and deployments are strategic and follow consistent processes across the program.
CoreFlex proposed automation tool selection collaboratively with development teams participating in the process. We developed a proof of concept to showcase efficiencies and feasibility.
CoreFlex development task automation proactively (for JSON payload automation). This was earlier a manual task and used to take up approximately 95 minutes of each developer prior to any manual test execution. The same task now barely takes less than a minute for each test execution run.
Since inception, the CoreFlex team has punched above its own weight and brought about QA transformation to the entire program with clear data and information reporting that depicts progress at every milestone, every sprint and every period of application deployment.
