The seamless functioning of your Oracle applications is crucial to business continuity and consistently good customer experience. However, the lack of thorough testing owing to manual or piecemeal automation forms the primary bottleneck. Learn how Avo Assure – a no-code, AI-augmented, heterogeneous test automation solution helps you over these challenges.
Why Change?Digital disruption is becoming the DNA of organizations, especially insurers. The key areas that determine if your customer chooses you over your competitor are operational performance, responsiveness, and customer experience. It is a continuous and ongoing process that is defined by software quality.
Why now?Packaged products like Guidewire help organizations compete effectively. However, there are several challenges.
Slow manual testing where tedious test design leads to longer test cycles, impacting delivery timelines.
Inadequate test automation coverage increases defect slippages in production, which means poor quality applications.
Piece-meal test automation solutions that require scripting and lack cross-platform compatibility, thus not precisely automating testing.
A slower feedback loop between Guidewire testers and developers as there is no steady DevOps pipeline, resulting in delayed delivery.
Overall, a lack of thorough testing means delayed time-to-market, cost overruns, and lost customers.
A test automation solution that helps deliver top-quality applications is the answer.

3 Steps to Simplifying Guidewire Testing with Avo Assure
Faster and Autonomous Test Design
Test design is often the most time-consuming step of manual testing or automated testing that requires scripting. Avo Assure being 100% no-code, reduces all the test design efforts to a few clicks. With Design Studio, you can visualize your entire application workflow to instantly design test cases and update them as required. This overview further simplifies test maintenance.
Avo Genius, a (beyond) smart recorder, helps automatically create test scenarios as you navigate web applications. It offers data parameterization, the flexibility to pause a recording, and edit test steps on the fly.
Design Studio and Avo Genius work in unison; as you navigate through the screens using Avo Genius, respective modules get simultaneously generated in Design Studio.
The pre-built library with 1500+ keywords further helps you create test cases on the go and enhances reusability. The easy-to-use UI empowers technical and business users to contribute to testing Guidewire applications, thus improving test efficiency.
Smart Test Execution
Avo Assure makes test execution straightforward, as no coding effort is involved. Furthermore, capabilities like parallel execution help you run tests in parallel on a single VM or multiple VMs simultaneously. Smart Scheduling enables you to make the most of 24 hours by scheduling test execution during non-business hours.
With the Elastic Execution Grid, you can scale test execution on any cloud platform.
These capabilities shorten the regression cycles, improve the feedback loop between developers and testers, and significantly decrease the number of bugs in production.
Easy Test Maintenance
Avo Assure offers seamless test case reusability, helping save time and effort. The Upgrade Analyzer helps pinpoint the piece of code that has undergone a change and tests just that, saving time on analysis. Design Studio also simplifies test maintenance by offering a bird’s eye view of your testing hierarchy.
