Validata Testing Approach

Validata Testing Methodology



Product Overview



business challenges
Business Challenges
  • Traditional test automation systems originated in a world that moved at a much slower pace, where waterfall development was the only game in town and no-one attempted to tackle automation of fast moving, mission-critical applications – they knew that the technology simply couldn’t keep up.
  • These products all get their capabilities from powerful scripting languages, something that sounds good but has become a horror in the real world, requiring a cult of highly skilled and highly paid test automation engineers to communicate with the complex and mysterious deity, the test automation tool.
  • Business Challenges:
  • Need to test complex interaction between processes and systems
  • Generic model for the organisation – encompassing all applications
  • Multiple location support
  • Multiple team support (over multiple locations) e.g. TAM, Test Centres
  • Multiple environment support (for multiple applications)
  • Referential integrity across environments
  • End-to-end regression testing
validata advanced testing suite ats1
Validata Advanced Testing Suite (ATS)
  • Validata Advanced Testing Suite (ATS) provides a full end-to-end automated testing capability that adapts easily to changes in the application under test, ensuring higher quality and reduced costs and effort.
  • Validata ATS is a truly integrated and business process management solution.
  • Validata ATS is the first model – driven testautomation tool for Functional, Technical and Continuous Regression Testing.
  • Validata focuses on the analytics (the context and the content) thus providing root cause analysis linking requirements and testing. Full reporting is on-demand from the Executive Dashboard Module.

Project Success

validata unique testing approach
Validata Unique Testing Approach

Validata Testing Methodology
  • Testing Techniques:
  • Model Driven
  • Data Driven
  • Key Word Driven
validata risk based methodology
Validata Risk-Based Methodology

Risk is the possibility that future events may cause adverse effects. Risk management is a discipline for understanding and mitigating these possibilities.

Risk mitigation and compliance reduces costs and protects reputation. In the current business climate both “cost containment” and “reputation management” are high on Boardroom agendas.

  • VALIDATA stores and links Risk related information to calculate risk assessment metrics.
  • Risk Management in VALIDATA is utilized in impact production reports and on demand regression testing.
  • VALIDATA’s risk-based approach to testing ensures that operational risks are identified and prioritized to ensure the issues are fully addressed.
business process driven testing
Business Process Driven Testing

Many financial institutions are now regulated to demonstrate that not only are their business applications tested but that their operational processes are also aligned to the systems they use. Validata ATS is providing Business Process Testing, through its Business Flow Modeller (BFM) module.

Business Process

Business Flow Modeller provides the ability to import business workflows from external systems such as ARIS Workflows, store, edit and visualize them in Validata’s repository. Once the Business Process have been captured we are able automatically to generate test cases and link them with the related business processes.

So, Validata BFM enables end-to-end testing aligned with the business processes.

This way, Validata user can ensure the qualitative and quantitative coverage of testing.

model driven testing
Model Driven Testing

Businesses that need to test complex interactions between processes and systems often find that their testing capabilities are not as robust as they would want them to be.

Significant benefits are to be found using a rigorous approach to clearly define the boundaries of both processes and systems that need to be tested effectively.

Unlike other testing tools available, in Validata ATS, in order to create the Test Cases, the Application Model as well as the Test Data remain separate from the Test Case structure. All information is brought together during the execution time and run against any test environment.

Faster, easier and more efficient maintenance is achieved when changes occur on the application or the test data level without effecting the total test case structure and providing to the user maximum flexibility and re-usability.

Validata Database

data driven testing
Data Driven Testing

Most IT departments make direct copies of their production systems for non-production. This inefficient (and expensive) process lacks focus and increases test cycles immeasurably. As production databases slowly grow, the longer it will take to make a complete system copy. As a result, your test team struggles, you come across compliance challenges, your hardware costs rise and the overall quality of your testing (and test data) remains poor.

Validata ATS offers an end-to-end test data management solution which is flexible, fast and easy to use. Test Data Manager not only creates or generates synthetic data from scratch, it can also create subset databases, de-identify (mask or obfuscate) your existing data and bulk up data for performance testing.

product overview t24 model bank accelerators
Product Overview: T24 Model Bank Accelerators

Our testing accelerators allow Validata ATS to jump start our clients implementation by having up to 80% of the core Test Cases and Test Steps available immediately testing begins.

The structure provides a ‘ready-to-use’ set of test scenarios, grouped into logical functions and based on the major banking business functions (i.e. Loans, deposits, FX...), providing re-usability.

Reusability is the key driver in reducing costs. As a limited amount of customization will be required, the cost of implementing Validata is significantly reduced.

Significant investment has been made in both the development of product functionality and relevant content, re-usable test cases to be packaged and delivered to clients as part of the overall product solution , to ensure full test coverage when it counts!

Extend your test coverage with Validata ATS!

The Critical Differencies

Efficient Testing

Effective Testing

  • Reduced Testing time - Less time to develop, Shortened application life cycle and Faster time to market
  • Reduced QA Cost - Upfront cost of automated testing is easily recovered over the lifetime of the product. The cost of performing automated testing is much lower, many times faster and with fewer errors
  • Greater Coverage -The productivity gains delivered by automated testing enable more and complete testing. Greater coverage reduces the risk of malfunctioning or non-compliant software
  • Improved testing productivity - Test suites can be run earlier and more often

Improve Process

Better Use of resources

  • Consistent test procedures - Ensuring process repeatability, resource independence, eliminates manual errors
  • Replicating Testing - Across different platforms is easier using automation
  • Results Reporting - Automated testing produces convenient reporting and analysis with standardized measures allowing more accurate interpretations
  • Using Testing Effectively -Testing is a repetitive activity. Automation of testing processes allows machines to complete the tedious, repetitive work while resources are diverted to perform other tasks
  • Test team members can focus on quality
