RPA Testing with Vee Technologies
While reviewing our own internal processes, we identified numerous tasks that could be automated to streamline performance. What better way to test out the impact that automation provides, than to upgrade our own systems and processes and then analyze the results in the end? Our goal was to utilize cutting-edge technology to automate routine, boring and repetitive tasks within our business processes to achieve increased accuracy and speed, with minimal costs.
From beginners to advanced users, our robotic process automation team was provided constant internal training mechanisms to streamline the design and testing process, so that deployment could be performed smoothly and efficiently. That training still holds true to this day and has been the core of our success.
Features Tested Within RPA
The bots we initially used for QA testing were in our healthcare and insurance departments, where numerous features like mouse and keyboard automation, scheduling, triggers, system monitoring, Excel automation, auto-login, desktop automation, SAP, web application and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) could all be tested in a secure environment. Throughout this process we could track all issues and identify the necessary steps to complete the task.
QA Test Plans Created for RPA
The QA process within RPA involves preparation that contains details about the bot configuration, monitor resolution, hardware and software configuration, licensed tools and unlicensed tools, features to be tested, resources involved, planned resource hours, test methodology as well as test & bug life cycle.
Test Scenarios Within RPA
Vee Technologies understood that data is critical to processes within just about every industry. Two of our client industries, i.e. healthcare & insurance, are among those. The test bot for them was analyzed for the following scenarios:
- Database server up and down
- Time zone verification for two different time formats in the Database server
- Data validation
- Date validation
- Remote desktop connectivity
- Citrix receiver connectivity
- Various file formats
- Monitor resolution
- Amazon Web Services server (AWS)
