Automated Regression Testing Accelerates Quarterly Releases

Frequent feature upgrades and releases necessitated many cycles of regression testing. To speed up the regression testing phase and increase testing productivity, the client required to automate the regression testing process completely. The main challenge was to evolve a robust test strategy/approach that would maximize the benefit from automation. In addition, the team needed to create maintainable scripts taking into account the interrelated functionality and the fact that the application was stable and data intensive.

Our team developed a Test Automation Framework which improved the speed of the regression testing phase for this federal client. This effort also increased testing productivity which allowed the ongoing Oracle Financials Quarterly Release enhancements to be placed into production in advance of scheduled dates.

Oracle 11i Federal Financials Training Delivered to Multi-Site Users in Record Time

Our client was implementing Oracle Federal Financials in the following modules Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Benefits, Federal Administration, General Ledger, and Purchasing. They needed support to train users on the new program. Our client required further documentation capabilities through the creation of multiple output formats from a single recording session of a procedure. These include a customized context-sensitive help (Player) package linked directly to the Oracle application, a set of procedural job aids (Tip Sheets), and role-specific OLT courses through a set of Learning Management System (LMS) packages. These OLT courses were linked to 1100 learning plans through the client’s LMS (GeoLearning).

With an impossibly short deadline, our team of expert Oracle trainers utilized UPK OnDemand to develop a mix of classroom and online training material for a large federal agency. This training program was delivered to hundreds of users across multiple geographies and has received many departmental accolades.

After working with our team of functional and technical experts, we were able to improve performance time and reporting data accuracy which allowed this client to comply with multiple Sarbanes Oxley requirements. Today we are responsible for all technical support for this client’s Oracle Financial applications.
