Benefits and Results
Before deploying SmartBear QAComplete and TestComplete, the Georgia Lottery released one or two software updates per quarter. But after the deployment, this number jumped to 10 or more releases per quarter—a 5X increase.
“These numbers show just how much the SmartBear solutions have accelerated our development processes,” says Robert. “Gaining the ability to roll out new apps and features faster is critical in today’s online marketplace—end users always want to see new capabilities in the way they interact with our lottery games. If they keep seeing the same functionality all the time, they’re likely to get bored and take their business elsewhere. In that sense, the SmartBear solutions help us maintain market share and keep up with the online gaming market.”
QAComplete and TestComplete Web are helping the GLC development team test applications for mobile devices as well as applications for public-facing webinars that help customers understand how to interact with various lottery games. The team also develops and tests applications that help retailers offer lottery games to their customers.
The two SmartBear solutions, working better together, have also assisted GLC in converting from a Waterfall development environment to an Agile development environment. This accommodates two-week sprints that generate software updates faster.
“With all of our applications, we want to be innovative and offer lottery experiences for customers and retailers that go beyond the lotteries of the past,” Robert points out. “The way to achieve this is through mobile apps and websites that evolve continuously and quickly so players keep coming back. That means generating more releases through application sprints, and to do this, you need testing tools like those offered by SmartBear.”
