The Client provides sales and back-office software solutions for travel agents and tour operators. They build solutions on the Microsoft stack, developing their software using Visual Studio, SQL Server and TFS. Testhouse had engaged with them to review their software processes and they identified a need for functional test automation support to assist their ongoing drive for quality improvements. They decided to explore the use of Selenium for automating tests as a replacement for their existing Telerik Test automation suite which was not fulfilling their demands for a scalable and easy to maintain test automation solution.
The client had a clear view of the automation solution they were looking to achieve. This needed to ensure a wide range of test coverage which would integrate into their CI process (using TFS) so that automation scripts could be run against every CI build (3+ times per day) and against their main QA environment (daily).
