Test Automation as a Service

Test Automation

When investing in the setup and maintenance of a test automation suite, why not get a partner who can implement tried-and-tested solutions from day one?

spriteCloud are specialists with a wealth of expertise in frameworks such as Cucumber, Watir and Selenium, and ready to lead you to TA success. Whether you want to get your in-house suite off the ground or need us to take setup, build and maintenance completely off your hands, we’ll use our knowledge of the best tools and methodologies to help you create the finest experience for your customers.

Test Automation as a Service

Test Automation as a Service (TAaaS) is the focus of our approach because it takes TA further. It places setup, development and maintenance in the hands of the experts, making your testing quicker and much more cost-effective. You no longer need to investigate vendors and buy expensive licenses, set up test automation hardware or learn new programming languages. We manage the complete TA process for you.

TAaaS also increases your test coverage to reduce risk and maximises your long-term return on investment. You can quickly assess your site or app’s functionality, freeing up your testers for those projects that require direct interaction.

    1. Getting started: Are you thinking about test automation for your software development project but don’t know how to start?
    2. Orientation: An experienced TA Architect from spriteCloud will use the right knowledge and tools to help you to get a clear picture of the TA challenge and its possibilities.
    3. Plan and scope: Together with the relevant stakeholders, the TA Architect delivers a plan for the test automation approach, to which all parties can contribute and review.
    4. Proof of concept: One of spriteCloud’s TA Engineers automates the first test scenarios. Within days, a demo is given that presents the test suite, including the test setup and complete test infrastructure.
    5. Automation: The spriteCloud TA Engineer completes the agreed scope, and at the end, another demo is given to show the results.
    6. Maintenance: The automated test scenarios are now in the maintenance stage. spriteCloud offers a very cost effective maintenance service to keep the scripts running and the value of your TA investment high.
    7. Training, workshops and handover: We can give TA training and workshops to internal staff to ensure a smooth handover and continuation of automated testing.
    8. Testsuite development: The scope can be reduced or increased at any time after the planning phase has begun.

    Using the test automation framework initially setup by spriteCloud we discover bugs earlier in our CI development process, resulting in a much more cost efficient and faster software release process.
