    Accelerate PeopleSoft Project Delivery with robust Test automation processes using FasTest!

    There has been a significant paradigm shift in today’s fast-paced development environment where automated testing has replaced comprehensive manual testing. Businesses are now leveraging the value that robust automation processes offer in terms of increasing software efficiency by largely reducing the enterprise software development lifecycle curve.


    Automation testing, being less resource-intensive, offers potential solutions for testing and re-testing using an enormous range of data values, web browsers, or operating systems. Essentially, automation testing methodologies come with a significantly broader scope of overall test coverage, and therefore, a direct impact on application quality. The very redundant nature of automation allows assessment of program behavior with dedicated focus on constant execution of all areas of testing, thereby, expediting software delivery.


    The pre-PeopleSoft 9.2 versions were primarily maintenance-intensive, with critical issues including application updates being handled by applying a host of patches, bundles, and maintenance packs. Emerging business standards with PeopleSoft v 9.2 has grown to revolutionize the release cycle for managing application growth and utilization.


    Selective Adoption for PeopleSoft allows customers to select and drive changes based on business requirement whilst preserving strategic customization. Using the Selective Adoption process is critical for organizations to keep PeopleSoft current.

    This new, best-in-class methodology is now bundled with PeopleSoft v 9.2; the PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM) allows you to selectively Accelerate Peoplesoft Project Delivery with robust Test automation processes using FasTest!apply, implement, and manage ‘update’ images that contain several enhancements and new features. The breakthrough in testing particularly allows multiple PUM image applications with customer-driven cadence, increased test coverage, and regression that are critical for overall software quality. Customers are empowered by staying current on updates and maintenance packs with reduced cost in application maintenance.

    In order to drive agility in automated testing, the PeopleSoft Test Framework (PTF) houses many complex workflows. PTF is typically a business-driven automation framework solution based on the Selective Adoption landscape with the following significant key benefits:

    • Minimized manual efforts in regression testing
    • Increased information security
    • Reusability of test databases
    • Reduced cost and capital
    • Expedited feedback
    • Sustainable competitive edge
    • Increase in productivity resulting in a higher ROI

    The customization capability of PTF allows seamless integration with the existing processes and practices of maintaining and managing PeopleSoft. With a powerful single-click execution capability, PTF helps drastically cut down response time and operational capital for PeopleSoft deployment.
