Overview of Agile Success Through Test Automation: An Extreme Approach - Agile Testing

The development and testing of the replacement software solution presented a number of challenges:

  • The nature of the business need meant that the software solution would be a substantial and complex system,automating a wide range of innovative functionality which had previously generated substantial revenues for the business.
  • As valuable and knowledgeable resources,who were very busy managing the day-to-day business of the customer,there was relatively limited time available from the users to participate in a major testing program(even though there was commitment from the users to assist,provided the amount of time could be maintained within acceptable bounds).
  • There was a substantial development pipeline planned,and the testing approach needed to integrate closely with development in order to avoid interfering with the development plans as far as was practical.
  • The specification was incomplete and poorly documented,making test planning and design very difficult.Historically,the test approach had been to make the solution available to the users for testing once it was complete and for the users to sign it off once they were satisfied with the solution.
  • Historically,there had been very limited defect tracking documentation available,and no defect tracking system against which bugs could be formally logged,tracked,and fixed.
