Webinar Test Automation for Agile: Automating test case creation

Webinar Series: Test Automation for Agile Teams

How to avoid agile teams getting swamped with testing?

There is an interesting question that we get asked very often: How do we avoid that agile teams get swamped with testing activities? They test all new features, but also need to assure that they have not broken existing features. And that regression test effort can get big.

Test automation seems to be the logical answer. But: how do you achieve test automation in agile teams? is in-sprint automation possible? Will automation not break continuously because the changes that we implement (which is indeed inherit to agile)?

The World Quality report shows that many organizations are looking for answers on these questions. About 50% of organizations indicated that they are looking for

  • Automating not only to run test cases but also to create & maintain good test cases
  • Self-healing test automation to overcome the manual maintenance of broken automated test scripts after changes to the application

The WQR also highlights the challenges to find qualified automation engineers. So there is a clear trend in the industry towards low-code test automation. In other words: test automation by testers, analysts or even business…

New solutions to solve these uses cases have become available and are rapidly evolving. We are continuously looking into these solutions and working with our partners to find new ways to make fast, good & maintainable test automation available also to your teams.

We’re hosting two sessions where we’ll share our insights, but also to demonstrate how we’ve applied them on some interesting cases.


Please make sure to register for each session separately

Session 1: Automating the creation of test cases

Tuesday, September 27 (1:00-2:00pm)

Several approaches exist, we will focus on two:

Model-based testing and test case generation:

Our teams have applied this approach in our homegrown model-based testing tool "iMODEL/iAUTHOR" which is then integrated with our component-based testing tool "Automation Studio/ADAPT," which automates the generation of test scripts. We’ll give you an insight in how they did it and show you a demo of how it actually works.

Create relevant test scenarios based on analytic of production data:

This approach looks at actual usage by mining production logs and creating business process models for critical user journeys. This allows to test exactly how users are working with the solution. Based on these models, automation scripts can be generated using either open-source or commercial tools. We’ll demonstrate this approach together with our partner: Keysight Technology (Eggplant)


Session 2: Ease the creation & maintenance of automated testing

Tuesday, October 25 (1:00-2:00pm)

Self-healing test automation for open source automation:

We’ll present a case of automated maintenance of Selenium scripts via our homegrown self-healing mechanism, developed using the Robot framework on Python.

Visual, no-code automation platforms:

These solutions enables users with little or no technical background to easily automate scripts from flowchart language. We’ll demonstrate these capabilities together with our partner Leapwork
