Certify® is the industry’s first automated codeless testing solution built specifically for nontechnical users to test end-to-end business processes at enterprise scale. Built to test complex processes that span multiple applications and integrate into modern-day DevOps tool chains, Certify ensures that not only your software works but that your business works.
In today’s digital world, organizations need to be built for change. In the enterprise application space, testing can take up to 60% of the software release cycle. To accelerate releases, companies need to adopt test automation solutions. Due to the complexity and the need to drive tests via a GUI, automating testing for enterprise applications like SAP has been historically difficult and costly. Legacy code-based test automation tools require specialized skills, produce brittle tests, and require extensive maintenance. Manual testing was easier but because of compressing delivery timelines, is no longer a viable option. Fortunately, there is a better way.
Automation in Worksoft Certify is built using the patented Object Action Framework. This framework effectively models the application under test as a series of pages containing GUI objects and test steps, performing actions against those objects. Certify easily handles dynamic input, process flows, and the variations common to any business process.
Certify automates the testing of your exact business processes across all your enterprise applications, including Salesforce, Oracle, SAP, Ariba, Workday, SuccessFactors, Siebel, Manhattan, ServiceNow, and many others. This happens seamlessly and as fast as the underlying applications can operate, so you can validate business processes in record time with perfect reliability and consistency.
The automation generated by Certify is so “lifelike” that it can be used to create robotic process automation. Existing Certify scripts can be edited to include live connections to business systems or even Microsoft Word and Excel. These scripts can then be run from a user’s desktop to perform the business function, eliminating both human labor and human error.
Easy to Use – Users simply perform normal activities on mobile applications, desktops, mainframes, or tablets. Certify captures the process and handles the rest, automatically allowing for variations in business processes without the need to write or edit code. Best of all, complex, real-world test execution scenarios are handled with ease, allowing for conditional logic, timing delays, and database lookups to be handled automatically with no coding, scripting, or compiling.
Easy to Maintain – Worksoft Certify is built to handle dynamic decision-making at runtime without the need to create multiple tests. Fewer tests means lower maintenance, directly impacting total cost of ownership for your enterprise landscape. The object action framework decouples the user’s test actions from the underlying technology. This decoupling means that changes in the application technology do not break your test, the object definition is updated, and your user actions still work.
Easy to Integrate – Certify seamlessly integrates with many application life cycle management (ALM) solutions—including HP QC, RQM, SAP Solution Manager, and others—where validation results are easily reported using familiar solutions in conjunction with other technologies. Worksoft Certify also offers robust integrations with ticketing systems. With one click, defects can be entered in JIRA, ServiceNow, or Excel. In modern DevOps tool chains, Certify processes can be run from CI (build) and CD (deploy) services, allowing Certify to pass or fail a build or deployment.
Easy to Scale – Certify offers unprecedented levels of scalability and speed of execution that no other automation provider can match. Certify provides a command line ability to execute tests that can be exploited by Jenkins and other like tools. Any tool that can run a batch file remotely can run Certify. Certify is used today by enterprises of all sizes to validate hundreds of end-to-end business processes with hundreds of thousands of individual business process steps daily.
