Real-world examples of Conformiq solutions

When a large global financial institution was tasked with implementing Salesforce to integrate the CRM platform into all Lines of Business applications, they chose Conformiq Creator to model the Salesforce application and rapidly generate test cases to keep in sync with the agile deadlines. As a result, the customer organization was able to integrate existing and future products while decreasing administration costs.

A US headquartered global pharmaceutical corporation with over $16B in annual revenues faced the increasingly challenging issue of rising testing costs. The solution, provided by their testing services partner, included Conformiq Creator, which enabled them to achieve a 94% test efficiency gain.

When a major insurance company was tasked with reducing the testing time for complex detailed process driven API, they chose Conformiq Creator to help them with test design and product delay related challenges. As a result, their testing processes became faster, more reliable and predictable, cutting their testing time and costs almost in half.

A major telecommunications provider achieved 100% requirements coverage with 75% faster test execution for e2e product delivery. With Conformiq Creator’s automated test design approach, the client organziation was able to improve customer experience significantly through faster test case creation without sacrificing any test coverage.

A major telecommunications provider achieved Continuous testing and in-sprint test automation with 40% reduction in testing time as they transitioned to Agile processes with existing HPE/Micro Focus test automation tools. They were able to meet company’s goal of increased productivity and lesser testing costs with automated test design, which resulted in e2e automation approach.

A leading healthcare providers wanted to increase productivity and eliminate defect for a combination of web interface and mainframe based applications. With Conformiq Creator, they realized 6x productivity gains and 83% reduction in test case development efforts.

A US headquartered healthcare providers wanted to improve product quality with higher automation adoption. Conformiq Creator helped them with 50% efficiency gain for ARIS processes.

An international financial institution, headquartered in the United States, providing loans to developing countries for capital programs to promote international trade, was looking for a testing process improvement. Their manual testing methodology was taking too long and allowing defects to slip through into deployment. Clearly, investing in more testers or spending more time testing were not options they wanted to pursue. The bank realized it was time to look to new technology from Conformiq to improve both time to deployment as well as reducing defect slip-through.

One of the world’s largest global banking companies, a bank with over 200 million customer accounts and banking operations in over 160 countries and jurisdictions, is continuously looking to leverage new technology and processes wherever possible.

Driven by intense time to market demands for releasing new products and services, an American multinational telecommunications corporation (and one of the largest providers of mobile and fixed telephone services in the United States) investigated options for improving the speed and effectiveness of their application testing methods.

One of the world’s largest financial companies needed to reduce its time to product release. In an industry with an ever-changing set of rules, financial regulations, and microeconomic changes, this company knew that their ability to test complex, new applications quickly and effectively was critical for both their currentand long-term success.

An American multinational telecommunications corporation investigated options for improving the speed and effectiveness of their application testing methods. They recognized that traditional manual test design and execution methods could no longer sustain the delivery pace needed for them to get their new products to market quickly and reliably.

ALCATEL-LUCENT

Alcatel-Lucent used Conformiq Designer in Agile software development project, developing communication client. Case study focuses on benefits of combining Conformiq Model Based Testing and Scrum. Mathieu Pamard and Ronan Thepaut from Alcatel-Lucent show how human readable test cases and machine readable test script for automated test execution are generated automatically from models with Conformiq Designer, enabling in-sprint test automation.

Adoption of MBT in Continuous Process Control Applications

For industrial control, Conformiq with Model Based testing (MBT) and system modeling with state machines was successfully applied to continuous process control applications. This approach, with control system design templates for reuse, found real process control loop bugs, hard to find using manual methods. Results: improved factory acceptance testing with a distributed control system and control loops; reduced manual work; higher test quality and coverage.

AVAYA

Avaya applied Conformiq Model Based Testing methodology for developing Internet telephony system. Avaya was facing a challenge of not being able to scale the resourcing and testing methodology to respond to increasing number of product features to test. By switching to Conformiq Model Based Testing methodology, Avaya achieved up to 5x productivity gains in testing within six months.

DAIMLER

In this case study by automotiveHMI (co-operation with Audi, Porsche, Daimler, Volkswagen, MAN, Bosch, Continental), Dr. Christoph Steglich from Daimler AG discusses the approaches that Audi and Daimler have used for Model Based Testing. Model based testing is used to generate tests automatically from model that describes system behavior.

ERICSSON

Ericsson has used Model Based Testing methodology with Scrum and is describing the approach, its benefits and challenges they faced.

IMS Application server teams at Ericsson have implemented Model Driven Design and Model Based Testing methods. Models are used for code generation and for test generation. In MBT same model is used to create test scripts automatically for two different automated test execution systems, in TTCN-3 and xtUML. Antal Wu-Hen-Chang and Tibor Csöndes discuss how Model Based methodology has improved the collaboration between Agile teams.

In this case study Tibor Csöndes (PhD) explains the difference between traditional testing utilizing test scripts and MBT approach, and discusses the benefits of MBT. Conclusions include MBT experiences and sharing best practices.

HONEYWELL
