KEY HIGHLIGHTS

Avo Assure is an AI-powered low-code test automation platform that supports over 200+ technologies, revolutionizing test case generation and accelerating test automation. With its intelligent recorder, keyword driven framework, intuitive UI, and AI capabilities, Avo Assure significantly boosts testing automation productivity. The platform also features a sophisticated reporting structure and simplifies test maintenance through self-healing capabilities and impact analysis.

Challenges

Organizations in today’s digital world must be designed to adapt. Software testing can account for as much as 65-70% of the software release cycle in the enterprise application arena. Companies must implement test automation solutions to speed up releases.

However, automating testing has always been challenging and expensive for packaged applications like Oracle, Salesforce, SAP, and similar platforms. That’s because of their complexity and the requirement to control tests through a graphical user interface. Tests generated using outdated code-based test automation systems are fragile, need a lot of upkeep, and call for certain technical expertise. Although manual testing was simpler, it is no longer a practical alternative due to shortened delivery schedules.

Solutions

Avo Assure is a low-code test automation platform designed with a unique foundation that business and technical users may use. Users can script using custom keyword functionality or use prebuilt keyword dictionaries to meet the application’s needs. Avo Assure can test most technologies, including business apps, Salesforce, Oracle, SAP, Ariba, Workday, SuccessFactors, ServiceNow, D365, etc. These technologies include mobile, Citrix, mainframe, desktop, and API—additionally, the platform provides prebuilt test automation libraries for systems like Microsoft D65, SAP, Oracle, and others.

Because of the flexibility of the execution architecture, users can schedule and run test cases in parallel, either headless or non-headless, on the cloud or using third-party cloud infrastructure. Additionally, the platform has a self-healing capability that lowers the number of false positives in the reports while maintaining script consistency. It is understandable that analysts like Gartner rank Avo at the top of the test automation ecosystem, given that it also handles difficulties like test environments and test data.

The Unique Capabilities of Avo Assure

1. Test Authoring

Avo Genius (Web and SAP)

Avo Genius (Web and SAP)

As the user interacts with SAP or any other web application, this helps kickstart the automation journey and attain rapid automation outcomes for low-to medium-complex applications.

AI Testcase Generation

GenAI is designed to revolutionize the creation of manual test cases. Using GenAI, Avo Assure can read requirements, whether in PDF or XLS or captured in any ALM tool like Jira, ADO, etc., and generate system-level or feature-level test cases.

In-sprint Automation

In-sprint Automation

With in-sprint automation, users can achieve shift left testing and begin the test automation journey from day one of product development by creating dummy objects in the product and starting to create test cases even without UI readiness.

2. Test Maintenance

Upgrade Analyser

Upgrade Analyser

Identifying an updated line of code to test is a cumbersome process since the tester spends time analyzing and then testing the update. Maintenance of older test cases often takes a back seat as applications grow. With Upgrade Analyser, users can identify minor changes in the application on the go and update test cases hassle free.

Impact Analysis

Impact Analysis

This feature will automatically analyze the application's changes and identify which test scripts need to be updated. Impact Analysis helps save time and effort by pinpointing the exact areas that require attention, allowing users to focus on relevant test case maintenance tasks.

Object Repository - Test Artifact Reusability

This feature creates a centralized location where users can easily access and manage captured elements. This approach enhances efficiency and organization within the testing process by allowing users to visit the element repository and capture the required elements for their projects. By streamlining this process, we aim to minimize redundancy, improve collaboration among team members, and offer a more intuitive experience in creating and maintaining automated tests with Avo Assure. It can also be repurposed across different test cases.

Versioning

Versioning

The Bitbucket/GIT Integration feature allows users to export their test scripts to any code repository via the source code management system used in their enterprise. This enables users to easily version their test scripts alongside code changes, resulting in a more streamlined, efficient, and collaborative testing process. It leverages the benefits of version control, backup security, and the flexibility of branching and merging strategies to ensure high-quality software development with faster, more reliable outcomes.

3. Test Execution

Avo Assure makes test execution a breeze, as all the coding effort is now reduced to a few clicks. Parallel execution expedites testing by helping you run tests in parallel on a single VM or multiple VMs simultaneously.

Execute Now

The schedule allows for scheduling test execution and extends testing capabilities around the clock.

Third party Cloud Infrastructure

Third party Cloud Infrastructure – Saucelabs, BrowserStack & LambdaTest

This integration with Avo Assure allows users to execute Avo Assure test cases in the Sauce Labs, BrowserStack, or LambdaTest cloud environments. Thus, any web or mobile application test case written in Avo can be executed in the cloud, enabling cross-browser and cross-platform testing. Additionally, it highlights benefits such as version backtrace, providing a streamlined and efficient testing process.

CICD

CI/CD

Avo Assure seamlessly integrates with any DevOps pipeline for instant triggering of test scripts the moment code gets merged, and it helps get instant feedback on the users’ build health status.

4. Utilities

Advance Debugger

Advance Debugger

One of the key features of the Advanced Debugger is its excellent debugging support. Avo Assure’s built-in debugger accelerates users’ edit, compile, and debug loops, enhancing your testing efficiency.

Custom Keyword

Custom Keyword

Custom keywords, with the language support of JavaScript and Python, empower users to craft their own unique keywords using a low code approach. They allow users to create their own reusable keywords to address some of the custom needs of the application under test.

Non-Avo Script Migration

Non-Avo Script Migration

The Avo Assure platform empowers enterprises to repurpose their existing script investments by providing a plugin to migrate current test cases onto Avo Assure. Central to this capability is the Avo Script Conversion feature, developed to facilitate the seamless transfer of automation scripts from non-Avo tools to the Avo Assure tool

Data Parameterization

Data Parameterization

Avo supports three ways of data parametrization:
a) Inbuilt data utility table
b) Import your data into Avo during design and execution in Excel, CSV, or XLSX formats
c) Third-party synthetic test data providers

Reports and Dashboard

Reports and Dashboard

Analyze reports intuitively with Avo, as it provides embedded execution videos and screenshots for each step. In the advanced dashboard, users can choose from out-of-box pre-defined widgets to effectively visualize reports or customize them as needed. The one-touch integration with defect management tools further simplifies issue reporting. Additionally, users can view both detailed and executive summary reports, enhancing the overall reporting experience.

Accessibility Testing

Accessibility Testing
