Challenge

The bank aimed to deliver an exceptional customer experience, release flawless updates consistently, and reduce accumulated test debt. Nonetheless, it encountered numerous challenges in its testing procedures, contributing to delays in time-to-market, escalating costs, and increasing complexity:

  • Test Maintenance Cost: The financial burden of updating and maintaining test cases was weighing heavily on the bank’s efficiency and budget. This was further exacerbated by costs associated with test infrastructure, including test clouds or virtual devices.
  • Test Case Complexity: As the application evolved with the addition of new features, maintaining consistency and accuracy in test results became challenging. Frequent code modifications hindered swift issue identification and resolution.
  • Unreliable Test Cloud: The bank experienced disruptions in testing operations due to downtimes and device-related issues, compounded by the maintenance demands of these devices.
  • Root Cause Analysis (RCA) Challenges: The bank found it resource-intensive to conduct RCA for test failures, detracting focus from product innovation.
  • Tool Integration Needs: Seamless integration with dashboarding and project management tools was crucial for effective collaboration across teams and clear communication with leadership.
  • Data Privacy Regulations: The bank faced unique testing challenges due to regulatory constraints on the use, movement, and analysis of critical banking data within U.S. borders.

Solutions Proposed

 

  • Test Maintenance Cost: Introduce a no-code platform for streamlined test case creation.
  • Test Case Complexity: Utilize lab capabilities to connect to various testing platforms.
  • Reliability on Test Cloud: Offer a no-code automation feature for scripting.
  • Root Cause Analysis: Support diverse testing types, including functional and API testing.
  • Tool Integration: Facilitate effective data manipulation, for both static testing data and dynamic retrieval from sources like the database repository.
  • Performance Testing and Infrastructure Costs: Provide a comprehensive library of testing methods and prioritize resource efficiency to reduce ongoing expenses, supplemented by a one-time device setup cost.
  • Data Privacy Regulations: Implement strategies and capabilities such as guaranteed lab uptime, predictive downtime insights, and resource-saving features to address regulatory challenges.
