Challenge: Manual Labor Costs
As software development teams become smaller and more distributed, releases happen more often. As you increase the number of releases, you also try to increase your level of test coverage over time, by running more tests. Usually, this is a highly manual testing process, against a web browser or application user interface (UI), and the resulting test assets become broken as soon as any change is made to the application.
Most companies rarely achieve more than 5-to-10 percent coverage, at great cost. One Telco customer said: "My team of 50 is now a team of 250 in just 5 years due to more components and releases."
LISA takes a completely different approach. We capture all of the system elements and rapidly generate test suites and scenarios that cross multiple layers of your composite applications, allowing you to achieve a level of 80-90% coverage almost immediately. And, you can maintain that level of test automation over time for faster lifecycles and far lower costs, as the same assets used for functional and unit testing can be expanded for massively parallel regression and performance testing purposes.
A government agency reported automated test coverage levels over 90% due to LISA's ability to handle dynamic data, while the labor required for each regression dropped drastically.
LISA's Testing capabilities natively work against every layer of a complex application, including web, web services, integration layers, EJB, databases and more, with an understanding of the complex workflows and stateful behavior needed to achieve genuine reuse of test assets across multiple heterogeneous technologies.
