Performance Testing For A Top Insurance Company

Performance Testing For A Top Insurance Company

insurance, Performance Testing

Testhouse was approached to enhance the performance testing process for a large insurance company. The aim was to address challenges like multiple deployments impacting application performance and the absence of a structured schedule for performance testing. Our solution involved creating comparative test reports, establishing a monthly execution calendar, automating reporting and developing a master test design document. These steps led to better performance evaluation, improved productivity and automated load test reports, significantly benefiting the client.

Performance Testing

Problem Statement

  • Impact of Multiple Deployments and Code Fixes on Application Performance: Frequent deployments and code fixes were negatively affecting the application’s performance in production.
  • Lack of Defined Process and Structured Schedule for Performance Testing: There was no established process or structured schedule for conducting performance testing, leading to inefficiencies.
  • Extended Reporting Time and Increased Turnaround Time (TAT) for Application Owner Sign-off: Reporting processes were time-consuming, which in turn increased the turnaround time for obtaining sign-off from application owners.
  • Management of Multiple Applications and Their Test Cases on a Monthly Basis: Handling multiple applications and their associated test cases on a monthly basis was challenging and required a more streamlined approach.

Solutions

  • Comparative Tests and Post-Deployment Analysis: Conducted comparative tests and analyzed performance post-deployments, comparing the results with prior executions to identify any performance regressions.
  • Monthly Execution Calendar: Introduced a Monthly Execution Calendar to forecast all deployments and code fixes for each application. This allowed for better planning and scheduling of performance testing activities aligned with development cycles.
  • Automated Reporting with Intuitive Dashboards: Implemented automated reporting, significantly reducing reporting time. Developed intuitive dashboards to simplify the understanding of performance reports, making them more accessible and actionable.
  • Digital Assets – Master Test Design Document: Created a comprehensive Master Test Design Document that consolidated all test cases for all applications into a single workbook. This document was reviewed and signed off by respective application leads, ensuring alignment and clarity.

Benefits

  • Improved Performance Evaluation: The ability to conduct comparative tests and analyze post-deployment performance led to better performance evaluation and identification of issues.
  • Enhanced Productivity in Performance Testing: The introduction of a structured Monthly Execution Calendar improved the efficiency of performance testing by aligning it with deployment schedules.
  • Automation of Load Test Reports: Automated reporting and intuitive dashboards not only reduced reporting time but also enhanced the accessibility and usefulness of performance reports, contributing to more efficient decision-making.
