increase in risk coverage
testing efficiency improvement
Swiss Reinsurance Company Ltd, generally known as Swiss Re, is the world’s second-largest provider of reinsurance and other insurance-based forms of risk transfer. Founded in Zurich, Switzerland in 1863, Swiss Re operates today in more than 25 countries. Swiss Re’s entire organization is dependent on a large, complex application platform, and the company’s testing team is responsible for ensuring the quality of more than 250 applications.
Understanding that maintaining a high level of software quality inside of frequent updates to their application platform was mandatory, Swiss Re knew they needed to replace many of their manual testing efforts with a scalable test automation solution. Tester productivity was stifled under manual intervention that delayed the completion of their regression test suite, and constrained meeting continuous requests from the business for changes and new features.

By seamlessly integrating with a wide range of existing technologies and enabling fast adoption without the need for coding expertise, Swiss Re selected Tricentis to accelerate their test automation efforts. After eliminating the constraints and bottlenecks caused by their earlier manual testing processes, Swiss Re not only increased their efficiency and risk coverage, Tricentis began to provide substantial cost savings as well.
This was made possible by maximized reuse and maintainability through Tricentis Tosca’s innovative Test Case Design. Tricentis Tosca’s scriptless, model-based platform allowed Swiss Re to create 248 test automation scenarios that would cover what was previously done with 920 manual testing scenarios-and with no required programming or coding efforts.
