Through Validata ATS we support Functional, Technical and Regression Testing including Performance and Message Testing.
Validata ATS is script-less. Its incorporated test library is composed of test folders which contain test cases. Each test case is a sequence of data-driven test steps.
Validata ATS provides the ability to import or create requirements. Then you can automatically generate the required test cases covering the requirements.
Validata ATS unique model enables you to establish associations between objects, such as defects, test cases and requirements, as this is not a file-based system. There are reports showing the associations between all associated objects.
Validata ATS supports automatic generation of unit test cases and scenarios for the delivered code which are based on the development requirements.
Validata ATS links business, technical and testing requirements to the test cases and steps. The Pre-packaged Test Coverage report provides an overall pie chart of the test coverage and an analysis of the covered and uncovered user requirements. Validata ATS drill down technology, enables reporting on multiple levels: projects, folders, subfolders, etc.
Validata ATS allows chaining of valid and invalid sequences of actions. Chaining of valid sequences is enforced by the model via the business rules defined in the model: the associations. As far as invalid sequences are concerned, the business analyst can have sequences of steps in a test case without chaining them together. There is also a generic chaining method that allows linking between any steps. In other words, model-wise invalid sequences can be created as test cases either (generically) linked or unlinked.
Validata ATS generic data model enables us to store and reference data using its tags (which can be from simple IDs to complex compositions of multiple attributes, simple or from multiple sub-objects). Objects are also referenced and identified by their associations to other instances and navigation across these associations is performed for access and retrieval instantly.
Yes. Using Validata Connectivity (V-Conn) and one of its Adapters (SQL, Oracle, MS Access, CSV, etc.) Validata ATS is able to import and export from and to databases and other data sources such as Excel and Access.
Yes, additional development of functions is possible by building adapters on top of Validata ATS Application Programmers Interfaces.
Using Validata ATS accelerators Temenos T24 customization can be reduced by 80%. The build of the necessary testing library can be completed within few days.
Yes. Validata ATS is a data-driven solution that provides Data and Application Management and significantly reduces the man-hours spent to verify test data and expected results, and the cost of interface development and maintenance.
Through Validata ATS, data can be generated either manually or automatically. Automatic generation of data is performed either using adapter to import test data/expected results or scripts directly from the system under test, or based on XML or flat files (i.e. in Excel format). Validata V-Conn uses Validata ATS metadata repository to validate incoming data for completeness, valid values, proper formatting, etc.
Yes, being Temenos’ partners we have access to all the functionality that Temenos introduces and we enhance our adapters to handle all the latest functionalities.
In case the client does not have a testing plan and any test cases defined, Validata testing methodology starts from the client's established workflows/business processes. After uploading them in Validata ATS, we are able to automatically generate the test cases that are required for testing the whole business process. This way Validata can guarantee the quality of the testing process and the test coverage.
Strict rules manage the test execution procedure. Failing of a Validata adapter may result in bypassing the step or cancelling the whole test case. When the adapter or the system under test is recovered the test cases can be re-scheduled into new test cycles and re-executed.
Intelligent execution allows Validata SAS to perform automatic testing, using information collected during the test case execution. This information allows Validata SAS to perform fully automatic testing. For example, when a test step requires a transaction ID, it can retrieve this data from previous steps using the responses they have received from the system under test.
The tool supports test execution at a specific time/date, on a particular environment and against a physical date/time of the Application under Test using its Test Calendar functionality. A test calendar can be defined as the mapping of logical test business days to the actual days that the tests will be conducted on. This is especially important when more than one phase or cycle of testing is being executed in parallel. The calendar should state all the key physical tasks that are planned on these days, thus helping to predict any bottlenecks for shared resources such as DBAs or system administrators.
