1 IBM Global Services © 2011 IBM Corporation STEP-AUTO 2011 Hybrid Framework Best Test Automation Framework for ERP Projects Presented By Jessel R Mathew IBM

2 IBM Global Services © 2011 IBM Corporation Testing is a critical factor in any ERP implementation Testing occupies nearly 50% of the total ERP budget One way to reduce the burden on testing is test automation STEP-AUTO 2011 Introduction

3 IBM Global Services © 2011 IBM Corporation Problem Statement ERP consultants or manual testers do not have automation or programming knowledge Automation testers do not have in depth ERP functional knowledge So there is disconnect in the system STEP-AUTO 2011

4 IBM Global Services © 2011 IBM Corporation The disconnect in the system between ERP consultant and automation tester, can be bridged using a framework that would create reusable and configurable components, which can be assembled by the ERP consultants or manual testers and executed Framework that would best fit ERP projects would be a Hybrid framework Hybrid framework can be implemented using any functional test automation tool that can retrieve values from the cells in an excel sheet Solution STEP-AUTO 2011

5 IBM Global Services © 2011 IBM Corporation Hybrid Framework - Folder structure Folder Structure Library Folder Keyword Folder Expected Folder Input Folder STEP-AUTO 2011

6 IBM Global Services © 2011 IBM Corporation Library Folder The entire application is divided into reusable components of application-specific test functions or scenarios These reusable components or test functions are parameterized and stored in library folder Commonly used functions are stored in subfolder named Common All the functions or reusable components are created by the automation tester who have good programming knowledge STEP-AUTO 2011

11 IBM Global Services © 2011 IBM Corporation ERP functional consultants or manual tester can execute automated scripts by assembling the keywords and passing the test data in the sequence they want to execute in an excel sheet Quality test cases and test data will be created as functional consultants or manual testers who have in depth ERP functional knowledge design the tests Data-driven approach of this framework would aide in testing with wide variations of data Majority of our test resources can be used to design tests suitable for automation without knowing anything about the automation tools that is planned to deploy Bulk of our testers can concentrate on test design. It is the automation framework folks who will focus on the tools and utilities to automate those tests Benefits STEP-AUTO 2011

12 IBM Global Services © 2011 IBM Corporation Less time is taken by functional consultants or manual tester for testing as the process has been automated. Testers are not restricted to executing few automated scripts. They can design any number of tests without depending on automation testers, when reusable components are ready and execute them All test cases that are designed can be left for overnight run, which could save considerable amount of time More time available for testing, leading to be higher test Coverage and reduction of risk Faster test execution would lead to faster test cycles which would contribute to delivering the project within timeline This would increase the overall efficiency and contribute to the quality of the project Faster test cycles, improved efficiency and quality, will lead to drastic reduction of project cost Benefits (Continued) STEP-AUTO 2011
