a.s.r. is one of the largest insurance and financial services providers in the Netherlands. Dating back to 1720, a.s.r. has adapted to the digital age, from providing online banking to offering a “Drive Safely” android app. Software is now integral to delivering an innovative and relevant customer experience.
User needs and business requirements are constantly shifting, whatever the industry. At a.s.r., this meant that the test teams frequently found themselves being given projects at very short notice, while the requirements themselves were still evolving. In this instance, they had two weeks to deliver a fully tested application, while having to reckon with constant change.
CA Test Case Optimizer provided the functionality and flexibility required to deliver fully tested software that reflects constant change on time and within budget. In four hours, existing requirements were mapped to a flowchart model which allowed test teams to quickly and easily understand the changing requirements. Test cases which provided 100 percent coverage were then derived directly from the model. The model was flexible so that the tests could be quickly and automatically updated.
The flowchart provided a single point of reference for the business and IT so that test teams immediately understood changes made to the requirements. Once generated, the optimal set of test cases were executed in just three days so that the fully tested software was released on time, with no incidents. Since introducing CA Test Case Optimizer, the business approach testing teams far earlier, while test preparation time has been practically reduced to nothing.
