Our client was looking to develop and test its financial system in UBS due to significant concerns over the stability of the current system, processing issues, the number of manual workarounds in place, limitations to current system’s reporting capabilities and the heavy reliance on using Microsoft technologies to provide developing and testing solution for UBS.

Case Study 2 – investment management – Australia

Leading Global Investment Bank, a leading investment manager with more than $100 billion in funds under management, engaged Manvision to assist delivery of end to end testing solution from onsite for M1Evolution web integrated application. The desired result: a new, fully integrated operating model.

Manvision was approached by this client as they were in the build phase of M1Evolution project and wanted some guidance as to how best approach testing and needed in depth of Manvision involvement to deliver end to end testing solution at client site. The project was a multi-vendor one and Company A had already been involved with one of the vendors on an earlier project whereby the end-user experience had not been good. Client chosen Manvision for advice and some governance of the testing project assisted by Company A

Automation & Performance Testing Solution – Case Study on a Health Care Product

Client Profile

The Customer provides comprehensive benefit reimbursement services to Health Plans, Financial Institutions and HR Administrators and also provides benefit coverage for employees who choose to self-fund their health benefits programs. The Customer’s approach allows its customers to focus on selling and servicing their clients, while providing reliable and cost effective back-end capabilities.

The Customer used the services of ManVision to provide the solution for automating the testing of their Product that are delivered to their customers on long term basis. During the process, the customer involved ManVision in Test Consultancy activities like Test Strategy, Test Process, Automation of Functional, Database and Performance Testing of the application. Customer asked to perform a Proof of Concept for entire Testing Solutions at the customer’s location

The Challenge

  • Knowing the Product and Application is very important and prerequisite to address the Problems. Earlier, Customer engaged a testing consulting company but they could not do a good job as they were not keen in understanding the Product.
  • Educating the developers to adopt the culture and acquire requisite knowledge to exercise TDD properly.
  • Provide a uniform technique for comprehensive test coverage for unit testing and functional testing.
  • Reuse the functional test cases developed by each scrum team in UAT and Staging environment which the customer is doing manually.
  • Test the entire Application in Production environment. At present only Smoke Test is performed to test only perceived critical areas just to ensure the important areas of the application do not fail.
  • Identify the performance bottle necks and improve the performance of Application.
  • Automate the oracle unit testing with the help of utPLSQL, an automation framework for Oracle program units.
  • Educate the Developers in understanding and using the utPLSQL for Oracle unit testing for existing and new programs.
  • Writing automation script for existing code, though it is a huge effort.

Customer is using open source tools Selenium, utPLSQL and JMeter for Test Automation, Oracle Unit Testing and Performance Load Testing respectively.

Our Solution

In order to meet the challenges, the ManVision testing team prepared a Test Strategy document which highlighted the various tasks to be performed. The Testing activity was conducted in two phases:

Phase1: Study of the application and understand the existing code written for three areas. Comprehensive Study of the Application to understand and prepare the test plan and test strategy for existing test scenarios and test cases. We identified the area of the application that our client wanted to have automated.

Phase2: We prepared the automation script for existing sanity test cases to make sure the existing functionality has not been regressed due to fixes. Finally we delivered a regression test pack for the given test cases that can be used to make sure the major functionality is not disturbed. The test pack can be used as a regression testing for every Release across all major browsers. We analyzed the existing oracle code and suggested the different options and approach to use utPLSQL for unit testing the existing oracle code. We prepared and executed the performance testing scripts for few components of the Application that can be used to analyze the performance of the Application before and after every release.

The next steps that were planned for the customer’s requirement are in progress and these activities include Test Automation Framework Design for this Application.

Key Highlights

  • Confidence was given to the customer about the test automation tools that support the customer’s requirements. The limitations that restricted the customer to automate the testing process were resolved by ManVision
  • The automation of testing activities leads to faster execution of testing projects enabling high quality testing and reduced project timelines.
  • Complete Sanity Testing can be executed for each platform in production which was not doing at present
  • The Testing Team has started working in tandem with the Client’s testing and development teams and hence the relationship is established for a successful partnership
