End-to-End Test Automation for the Internet of Things (IoT)
Connecting unified application lifecycle management (ALM) and continuous test automation (TA) across all testing levels allows for a great combination when it comes to continuous delivery of high quality software.
Focusing on the automation of highly complex testing scenarios, expecco® offers a wide range of interfaces including mobile devices, internet protocols and electronic control units (ECU) making it the preferred solution for automated end-to-end testing of IoT (Internet of Things) applications like Connected Car, Smart Home and Industry 4.0 solutions.
expecco® Connector for Polarion® unites high-level test automation and test management by enabling bi-directional synchronization of Work Items between Polarion and expecco. Thanks to seamless integration, distributed teams can collaborate across the globe without having to leave their work environments.
Your development team is using Polarion for managing requirements and test specifications, while using expecco for the generation and execution of automated test cases.
The connector enables you to synchronize your test cases and test executions with links back to Polarion.
Here is how it works in 3 easy steps:
- Import your Polarion Test Case descriptions to expecco to generate a template for automated testing.
- Connect your automated expecco test cases with Polarion Test Cases
- Trigger execution of automated tests from Polarion. Results are transferred to Polarion.
Mobile Devices, Back-End IT and Controlling Devices in a single test scenario
To date, end-to-end-tests are most often executed manually which is expensive and does not meet the standards for functionality and performance of complex systems.
Taking the examples of the Connected Car, Smart Home or Industry 4.0 applications, eXept Software provides an test automation solution which, for the first time, depicts the linking of mobile devices, back-end infrastructure and controlling devices/micro-controllers collectively in a joint, automated testing scenario. expecco enables the integration of the various individual tests (component testing level) into a single testing process and substantially reduces the throughput times. Minimizing maintenance effort is achieved through a high level of reusability of test cases across all development stages.
As one of few testing tool on the market, expecco® checks all components which link a device with its environment and tests the entire system dynamically for weak points. The tool not only controls all involved interfaces, but rather masters them upon a parallel basis.
