PeopleSoft Test Automation Reduces Maintenance Time and Cost

Table of Contents

    PeopleSoft Test Framework (PTF) is a tool designed to automate the testing of PeopleSoft applications. Testing is a crucial aspect of software development, as it ensures the quality, reliability, and functionality of the application. However, manual testing can be time-consuming and expensive, especially when dealing with large and complex applications like PeopleSoft. This is where PeopleSoft test automation with PTF comes in handy. By automating the testing process, PTF can significantly reduce testing time and cost while improving the efficiency and accuracy of testing. In this blog post, we will explore how PeopleSoft test automation can reduce testing time and cost and why it's essential to invest in PTF automation for PeopleSoft applications. This article could be considered part II of our previous article comparing automated testing via PTF with manual testing efforts.

    Reducing PeopleSoft Testing Time with PTF Automation

    Efficient test script creation

    Efficient test script creation is one of the most significant benefits of using PTF automation. PTF offers a record and playback functionality that allows testers to record their testing actions and convert them into automated test scripts. This feature eliminates the need for manual test script creation, which can be time-consuming and error-prone. Additionally, PTF also offers a component-based testing approach that enables testers to create reusable test scripts that can be modified and reused across different test scenarios.

    Parallel test execution

    Parallel test execution is another essential feature of PTF automation. PTF allows testers to execute multiple test scenarios simultaneously, which significantly reduces testing time. Parallel test execution also improves resource utilization by utilizing idle system resources that would otherwise remain unused. This feature helps to speed up the testing process and reduce testing time significantly.

    Quick identification and resolution of issues

    Quick identification and resolution of issues is a critical aspect of efficient testing. PTF automation provides real-time monitoring and reporting of test results, which enables testers to identify issues quickly. Additionally, PTF also facilitates collaboration between testers and developers by providing detailed information on failed test cases, enabling developers to resolve issues quickly.

    Reducing Testing Cost with PTF Automation

    Lower labor costs

    One of the most significant benefits of PTF automation is that it reduces labor costs associated with manual testing. With PTF automation, testers can automate the testing process, eliminating the need for manual testers. This reduction in labor costs can be substantial, especially for organizations that need to test large and complex PeopleSoft applications.

    PTF automation also improves the productivity of testing teams by eliminating repetitive manual testing tasks. This productivity improvement enables testing teams to focus on more critical testing activities, improving the overall quality of testing.

    Reduced PeopleSoft maintenance costs

    PTF automation also reduces PeopleSoft maintenance costs by facilitating the efficient identification and resolution of defects. PTF automation provides real-time monitoring and reporting of test results, allowing testers to identify defects quickly. This early identification of defects helps to prevent costly production issues that would require significant resources to resolve.

    PTF automation helps to prevent defects from occurring in the first place by enabling organizations to test their applications thoroughly before deployment. By catching defects early in the testing process, organizations can save time and money that would have been spent on identifying and resolving defects after deployment.

    Faster Delivery

    Another critical benefit of PTF automation is that it accelerates testing cycles, enabling organizations to deliver PeopleSoft applications faster. PTF automation streamlines the testing process, reducing the time and effort required to test large and complex applications. This acceleration of testing cycles can help organizations to meet tight project deadlines, improving the overall efficiency of the organization.

    PTF automation improves the quality and reliability of PeopleSoft applications by enabling testing teams to identify and resolve defects quickly. This improvement in quality and reliability can reduce the risk of costly production issues, further reducing the overall cost of testing.
