Quality of Testing: Test automation and continuous integration with HP Unified Functional Testing

‎08-18-2014 02:18 PM - edited ‎09-17-2015 03:05 PM

Test early, test often, test continuously. This mantra guides testing organizations to reduce delivery cycles to converge with the ever-complex demands of consumers. Teams are under pressure to release faster, and quality can often become a casualty of this speed, with undesired and costly consequences.



How does a challenged development and testing team ensure quality in an ever-faster development window? One way, perhaps, is in the assiduous adoption of automation testing and continuous integration. Combining continuous integration and test automation practices enables your teams to test early, test often, gather real-time feedback, and ensure uncompromising quality even in the face of rapidly shrinking release cycles.


In certain circumstances however, automation can feel unattainable for testing teams lacking the software infrastructure to guide their efforts to areas of greatest need. They are also missing the infrastructure to simplify the process of creating test automation, and to shrink the learning curve required to test both user interface and application logic and connect it all together.


What you really need is a unified approach for test automation. One solution is focused on automating the testing of transactions that span the multiple application layers and APIs that make up today’s software landscape of loosely coupled and interconnected business processes.


The solution to these challenges is HP Unified Functional Testing (HP UFT). HP UFT allows you to easily reduce test asset maintenance and encourage test asset reuse rather than duplication of effort. HP UFT also allows for test automation that evolves in a manageable, cost-effective way as your footprint of test automation assets expand with the adoption of continuous integration and agile delivery.

For today’s rapidly evolving modern, mobile, agile, cloud-provided, and composite applications, HP UFT automates testing through an intuitive, visual user experience that ties GUI, API, and framework-based testing together in one IDE. UFT significantly reduces the cost and complexity of the functional testing process while driving continuous quality.


Ultimately, HP Unified Functional Testing is a powerful enabler for your efforts to test earlier and test often for uncompromised application quality. Have any questions, be sure to tweet us at: @HPSoftwareALM and visit:!
