Capture 2.0 is our latest and most advanced object and action recognition technology for automated business process discovery, documentation generation and testing acceleration. Capture 2.0 is 10 times faster than previous versions, easier to use and extends capabilities to HTML5 Web and Mobile UIs. Capture 2.0 also features a rich, new user interface which enables both business users and test automation professionals to create end-to-end tests. In Agile environments business users run Capture to document the stories. Once a feature is complete, QA finishes the test automation and can schedule tests to run continuously.
Making changes to systems that support mission critical business processes requires constant collaboration between business users and IT. The faster you can accurately document existing processes and create and modify resilient test plans, the faster you can test.
The challenge is business users and IT technical users have different skill sets and needs. In recognition of this, Worksoft has aligned its portfolio to meet that challenge and deliver functionality for both personas. Worksoft Analyze is designed for business users and requires no testing experience or technical knowledge. Worksoft Certify is designed for test automation professionals that create, edit, maintain and run tests. Captured steps by Capture create the building blocks for automation; usable by both Analyze and Certify.
In the custom application world, stories are documented, loaded into Agile management systems and then distributed to scrum teams. Enterprise application projects typically do not work the same. Business process documentation is produced by business analysts and then turned over to IT as the basis for test plans. Because of the amount of manual work typically involved in the documentation, process teams then struggle to keep up with Agile testing cycles.
Further adding to the bottleneck is the fact that test automation for enterprise projects is typically done at the feature level vs. the story. The finished feature is what the business cares about and therefore the focus for rigorous testing. But this doesn’t mean each story doesn’t need to be documented. It simply changes the point in which the documentation is transferred to the testing team. In fact, more documentation and testing is typically needed for enterprise application projects:
Capture 2.0 enables business users and testers to work together in parallel. Business users run capture to document the stories. Once a feature is complete, test automation professionals can finish the automation and schedule into continuous testing cycles.
