Benefits and Results
Since deploying SoapUI Pro, Healthcare Data Solutions has gained the ability to data-drive automated tests—which reduces the set-up of initial testing processes from three days to just half a day. “We can also run regression tests before and after human testing to make sure we focus the right efforts on the right place in the QA process,” Wimpey adds.
Regression testing the same situations across multiple environments—development, QA/staging and production—used to require a lot of manual work. But with the SoapUI Pro Ready! API environment, HDS can quickly switch the same tests to run against any environment. Wimpey’s team also revamped the regression suites to be more robust and easier to update versus the previous way.
HDS also now has the ability to provide management with an objective view over which APIs the QA Team is testing and not testing by using the coverage reports in SoapUI Pro. The team is creating test suite reports to share with the project owners and to add to the documentation of test coverage.
“By communicating what we are testing in real time to management, they can respond and re-direct our activities when necessary,” Wimpey says. “This helps us make sure the QA Team is focused on the testing that will deliver the greatest value to the company.”
