Managing Change in a Complex Environment
Using test automation to reduce the time and effort required to certify updates to desktop images
Streamline application release testing process
The test lab of a major food manufacturer was responsible for certifying changes to the company’s 46+ desktop profiles used by over 36,000 employees. The changes included OS updates, security patches, and new application releases that resulted in hundreds of testing events each month. Thousands of staff hours were being spent each month to certify the releases.
Overwhelmed by the workload and the cumbersome, unreliable, and mostly manual testing process, the Manager of IT QA contacted Utopia Solutions to help the company streamline and automate its release certification process.
Working with the client, Utopia designed and architected an automation engine that covered the entire profile certification process – enabling a single test lab team member to certify multiple profiles simultaneously in significantly less time. This greatly improved the coverage, speed, and quality of the certification process.
