    Indiana PTF Follow-up: Can PTF Ease the Burden of End-To-End Testing in SOI Test Cycles?

    Presented by Indiana Office of Technology

    In late 2013, State of Indiana chose to pursue PTF as an automated testing solution. The initial goal was to use automation for improving our cumbersome End-To-End (E2E) testing process. We contracted development of PTF tests for all Financials modules. Unfortunately, resource shortages kept the planned debut of our newly created PTF tests from being implemented during our 2015 Oracle database conversion testing. Then more misfortune when our PeopleTools upgrade disabled our unwieldy collection of PTF tests and our burgeoning PTF skillset was stifled in repairing them. 2016 brought a reboot of our Oracle conversion project and also allowed us time to master the PTF tool and to repair our tests. In Q4 2016, our PTF tests will be going head-to-head against a nearly identical manual testing of our E2E process. I will describe our path to "mastery" of PTF and compare/contrast PTF's results to our manual E2E testing process.
