About the Presentation

Test automation as a service – a smart way to make automated testing more efficient

Test automation is known to require considerable initial investment, big part of which is the time to set up the test environment. When working in a cloud environment, this initial investment may even significantly increase, if the cloud setup is also becoming the responsibility of the testing team(s).

In Ericsson a flexible SaaS platform for testing, called Test Automation as a Service (TAaaS), has been developed. TAaaS is able to calculate the optimal workflow to install and configure any combinations of end-target tools and SW (test) frameworks, and execute the workflow from zero (i.e. creation of the VM) until the target workspace ready to be used. Users access it via a web-based UI.

TAaaS decreases the creation of testing workspaces from several hours to 5-15 minutes, depending on the complexity of the requested workspace, and as additional benefit eliminates human errors.
