UiPath recognized Palo Alto Networks, Cushman & Wakefield, and Entrust as outstanding examples of companies adopting Test Suite to transform Application Testing procedures
UiPath equipped its customers with UiPath Test Suite in 2020 to empower them with seamless application testing. The company said that three of its clients had distinguished themselves as positive examples for utilizing Test Suite to enhance application testing procedures in 2022 –
- Palo Alto Networks
- Cushman & Wakefield
Palo Alto Networks – Innovation
The IT team at Palo Alto Networks, a leader in worldwide cybersecurity, places a high priority on providing innovation to support secure digital transformation. Additionally, they always have to adapt to accelerating rate changes.
“Your QA [quality assurance] programs need to be fully automated and able to support changing go-to-market strategies as they continue to shift,” said Justin Chongtoua, Staff Software Engineer at Palo Alto Networks. “That means you need to be able to automate against all the different regression test cases and all the test scripts you run. They’ve got to be fast, and they’ve got to be bug-free.”
The IT team opted to use the test automation capabilities of the UiPath Platform, powered by Test Suite, after finding success with it for their Robotic Process Automation (RPA) requirements.
“With our test automation program, we were looking to consolidate all of [our different tools] and create one standardized approach in which test automation can be deployed across the entire organization,” said Chongtoua.
Palo Alto Networks, in particular, sought to take advantage of the overlap between the demands for test automation and RPA that the UiPath Platform met. The IT team soon saw improved testing quality for programs like Salesforce and SAP® after expanding their use of the UiPath Platform to include using automated testing features. Additionally, they increased their innovation cycles by reducing maintenance and creating test cases at an enterprise size.
Palo Alto Networks also improved the health of its automation by creating and distributing reusable component libraries and object repositories amongst its process automation and testing teams.
Cushman & Wakefield – SaaS Application Testing
The Intelligent Automation Center of Excellence (CoE) at Cushman & Wakefield sought to improve the effectiveness of testing cycles for its Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, much like the IT team at Palo Alto Networks did. Cushman & Wakefield used a SaaS tool to extract complex, unstructured data from particular processes as part of a transformation initiative. This program had regular upgrades and releases, necessitating thorough testing.
“Our team spent much time away from value-added activities like delivering automations and new applications to our stakeholders. Instead, they were spending too much time engaging in application testing,” said Thomas Mandel, Transformation Manager at Cushman & Wakefield. “This delayed the speed-to-value for applying new features.”
Cushman & Wakefield used Test Suite in collaboration with Ashling Partners to automate the test cases required to test their application comprehensively.
They were able to speed up the Intelligent Automation CoE’s transformation project by cutting testing cycle durations by 90%. They saw the advantages of cost reduction and an increased testing scope with 95% automated testing coverage for regression situations.
Entrust – e-Commerce Application Activity
The Entrust e-commerce team used UiPath Test Suite successfully for application testing. Entrust provides products and solutions for digital security and credential issuance. The e-commerce team needed to quickly test executions linked to different consumer activities inside the application after using Adobe Commerce software to construct their e-commerce web application.
These included –
- Exactly verifying credit card charges
- Verifying that items are correctly added to shopping carts
- testing security updates quickly
“We needed to find a way to transform our touchpoints—they used to be manual touchpoints where customers would call us to book orders, buy consumables, or subscribe to services. We needed a digital experience that would perform at scale—e-commerce that financial institutions, governments, and citizens across the globe could use. So, it needed a well-tested, reliable, consistent experience,” said Yannick Miaffo, Director of Automation Engineering at Entrust.
The UiPath Platform’s testing automation features allowed the Entrust e-commerce team to perform more than 100 test scenarios daily, increasing testing frequency. They can provide software upgrades more quickly, thanks to increased testing.
Automation has allowed analysts to speed up store regression testing, which has led to time savings, improved store quality, and more favorable consumer feedback. Entrust now has the chance to quadruple its e-commerce capabilities thanks to automated testing.
