The need for a scalable test automation solution inspired the organization to look into a better setup for quality assurance organization-wide. Recently, the ecommerce division adopted Tricentis Tosca (which had already been implemented elsewhere in the business) and set out to transform testing to meet the needs of a rapidly evolving agile business model. Tricentis Tosca’s scriptless, model-based approach enabled the team to implement automated test portfolios across multiple variations of SPAR’s ecommerce solution, and to quickly pivot from mostly manual to mostly automated testing. Additionally, Tricentis Service Virtualization enabled them to cut dependencies on connected applications, increasing the frequency of testing while reducing test environment costs.
In the future, SPAR plans to continue to scale test automation, as well as to integrate automated mobile testing into its broader testing strategy. For SPAR, testing objectives go beyond just test automation — it’s about optimizing the entire software delivery pipeline to ensure business stability and support an environment of rapid innovation.
