TCM

Automation & Test Management Turnkey Solution

Case Study

After conducting a case study on one of our largest clients, FogChain’s structured automation produced the following results when compared to other competitor testing approaches.

  • 35% cost savings for the Software Testing Life Cycle (52% when projected over 5 years)
  • 30% time efficiency savings in automation development and maintenance
  • 75% less script code compared to other automation frameworks

These results stem from our innovative structure which greatly simplifies the overall automation architecture. We can do the same for you!

1) Test Case Manager (TCM)

Our patent pending automation framework allows you to get the most out of your favorite automation scripting tool. Below are just some of the unique architecture characteristics:

Designed with a user friendly frontend and utilizes a relational database

  • The database can exist onsite or accessed in the Cloud!
  • You can even start onsite and migrate to the cloud at a later time
  • Interfaces with Mobile, Web, and desktop scripting engines

Out-of-the-Box and ready to go today

  • No need to wait for script code development. TCM creates the script code for you.
  • No need to fill out data tables manually. TCM can automatically populate your test case data tables.
  • Test cases are stored in a keyword/data-driven hybrid format (for Mobile too!)

2) Test Process Framework Model (TPFM)

TPFM is our tightly organized test management structure configured within your favorite test management tool. With this model, you’ll be guided in:

  • Using the same test case to run on mobile and desktop applications that have the same business flow
  • Test Driven Development (TDD) for functional testing

Architecture Components:

  • Business Process Testing (BPT) for regression testing
  • Traceability between release management, requirements, test planning, test execution, and defect tracking
  • Customized management reporting and metric tracking

3) Our Operations Strategy

Incorporate your subject matter experts (analysts), define work flow communication, and facilitate team mentorship resulting in low cost future growth. Below are some reasons why:

  • Typically subject matter experts (analysts) are non-technical with an eagerness to learn automation development. Wouldn’t it be great to harness their business knowledge and quickly turn it into automated tests? Our precise training of TCM and TPFM guides non-technical users and turns them into professional automation developers.
  • The structure matches the right team member skill set to the right TPFM operation area. While participating in the overall workflow, team members will naturally cross-train each other. This means new automated testers will develop internally (low cost) in contrast to finding high-priced skill set candidates.

How It's Delivered:

Our mission is to provide you with a mature and robust testing practice in 90 days (720 hours!). This includes implementing a portion of your test plans into the TCM/TPFM format. We can accomplish this onsite or remotely. When our engagement ends, you’ll continue to have technical support for any questions, concerns, or issues. Upon request, you can extend the 90-day process for continued test development.

Why Our Solution is More Beneficial:

Unlike other services, our goal is to deliver superior expertise in the shortest amount of time so that you gain the most on your automation ROI. The major benefits you’ll receive are:

  • Unity between your mobile, web, and desktop automated test cases
  • A pre-developed solution right away
  • More cost effectiveness than traditional methods of reaching a test practice
  • The ability to hire more analytical skill set candidates (scale)
  • Compliments your organization’s outsourcing, offshoring, or remote testing strategy
