Benefits and Results
With TestComplete, Technip can now test common functionalities across different applications and quickly run server application sanity tests. "Regression testing is now much easier," Mahmood added. "For Agile projects in particular, we can automatically test features that have already been developed instead of working our way through manual testing."
When Technip conducts regression tests, TestComplete saves considerable time. For one application that changes frequently, regression tests used to last 12 days. But with TestComplete, Technip now has automated scripts for most of the functionalities, so the same regression tests now require just four days. "In addition to making the process much easier for our testing team, we can also deploy application changes much faster for the benefit of our end users who interact with our critical applications," Mahmood said.
In addition to the faster regression testing, Technip can also quickly run server sanity tests. This proves helpful when implementing priority patches onto production servers after which the entire system must be tested.
"Automating our testing processes is very helpful when we need to perform specific tasks at times when testing resources are limited," Mahmood said. "We no longer have to ask one of our testers to spend an entire night monitoring test results before going live. TestComplete takes care of this automatically and in a much shorter amount of time."
Mahmood concluded his comments on SmartBear by saying, "SmartBear solutions include everything in one package so we don’t have to spend extra money for add-ons. And if there is new technology in the market or a technology is upgraded, SmartBear makes sure it’s included in the very next release of its products—without charging us extra money."
