Secure your go-live at the pace of the digital era
The digital transformation of organizations comes together with the adoption of agile development methods. Initially implemented in small teams in charge of developing new web or mobile applications with a relatively autonomous operation mode, agile principles gradually spread accross the entire IT organization.
For the test activity, this double change constitutes a true paradigm shift based on 3 pillars:
« shift left »: agile testers are integrated into the production teams ("Features Teams"); dedicated and separate test teams tend to disappear
« end-to-end quality »: the agile tester brings the business vision together with the Product Owner
« continuous testing »: acceleration of production pace demands a higher degree of test automation at all levels
helps testing teams to achieve the efficiency required by this paradigm shift.
uses visual representations to carry out the analysis, design and maintenance phases of the test process and produce both manual and automated functional and business tests.
Yest® brings the necessary values required for the deployment of agility on a large scale:
Fluidity: the adoption of Yest® by the testing teams and the integration of the solution in the existing tool chain are almost immediate, without technical roughness
Speed: automation, self-completion, factorization, various assistants, Yest® proposes many features to improve the speed and responsiveness of testing teams
Business relevance: with visual representations of the application workflows and business rules, various indicators to monitor the coverage in real-time (requirements, risks, priorities, etc.), the matching functions, etc., Yest® helps testing teams to produce tests with the most relevant business sense
Effective communication: the power of visual representation facilitates the alignment of the project stakeholders
In the analysis phase, the visual representation of the application workflows provides a first level of understanding of the functional perimeter to be tested. The visual power of these representation facilitates communication, the sharing and understanding of the functional knowledge, and the validation by the business or functional expert.
Decision tables complement the workflows and represent the business rules. requirements Indicators as well as other various indicators such as risks, priorities, sprint numbers, etc., can be associated with the different rows of the decision tables.

The scenarios created or generated are illustrated graphically in the application workflow representation thus allowing the tester to visualize the path taken by each scenario.
The Dashboard provides a synthetic view of the coverage achieved vis-à-vis the requirements and other criteria defined in the decision tables (in the example shown here, these indicators are 'risks' and 'priorities'). In addition, this dashboard graphically displays the coverage achieved by the created scenario as compared to the maximal possible coverage. In the example shown here, the different cases of contract verification are covered at 20% and there is no scenario covering the case of an invalid contract.
The produced tests can be published in your test management tool such as HPE ALM, Squash TM or Excel.
