Subject7 Inc., developers of the incredibly fast and easy Subject7 software test automation platform, was selected by Dovel to provide software test automation for web applications serving 20 different U.S. government agencies.
Among Dovel’s various projects within the federal government, one specific project is a series of web-based applications integration into a single grants management system servicing 20 Federal agencies, requiring 936 man-hours of regression testing time, and a headcount of six testing resources before leveraging Subject7. Dovel delivers development, operations, maintenance, and enhancement support for this project and continues to provide ongoing regression testing on the system.
Although the company employs testers with a broad range of skill sets, Dovel preferred and sought a test automation solution that did not require such a substantial coding efforts, so that testers could focus on providing subject matter expertise rather than spending time learning a proprietary programming language to conduct automated testing. It was critical for the Dovel team to have a cost-effective solution that met the following criteria: easy to install and configure, scaled out of the box, provided cross-browser and cross-environment testing, and did not require any knowledge of coding or scripting.
After extensively using a series of COTS and open source test automation products, the Dovel team decided to pilot Subject7’s platform. The team was quickly impressed with the functionality and ease of use. With only introductory training, the team was creating and running test cases almost immediately.
“What we noticed from the first day with Subject7 was the ease of use, and how fast testers were able to ramp up, even without any prior knowledge of testing,” said QA Manager at Dovel. “We reduced our regression time by more than 90% and freed up our testers for exploratory testing.”
“Dovel’s use case for faster and easier software test automation is an ideal application for Subject7,” said Payam Fard, CEO of Subject7. “We’re pleased to have Dovel among the progressive companies recognizing a better way to automate software testing with the Subject7 platform.”
