Using its cloud-based ready-to-deploy test automation framework, Iris sped up deployment of new features. The Amazon Web Services based solution featured continuous testing of products on a common framework layer. It enabled capacity planning of spinned cloud instances and need-based shutdowns.
Iris executed the project using acceptance test driven development (ATDD), a methodology that involves collaboration between customers, business and development teams. What was unique about the approach? Typically, automation is introduced towards the end of a development cycle. In most projects, developers bring in automation in Sprint 4 for features developed in Sprint 1, 2 and 3. As a result, return on investment isn’t maximized. Iris introduced ‘in-sprint’ automation, enabling 90% test automation with every sprint. This resulted in more efficient testing and cost savings.
