An Insight into the Different Users of Lean Functional Testing Tool - LeanFT

A successful implementation of Agile and DevOps-based software methodologies in any organization requires a shift-left approach in the testing process. Functional test automation tools help provide a strong ground for implementing this approach properly.

However, working with prominent functional test automation tools such as UFT and the latest from HP – a lightweight Lean Functional testing tool – LeanFT – requires a very specific skillset and mindset. Writing code for testing waterfall-based products requires a very different approach as compared to writing testing code for solutions like LeanFT that have been specifically built for continuous testing and continuous integration as they induce a continuous development process for easy integration with Agile and DevOps teams.

Overcoming Top Challenges during UFT to LeanFT Migration

Overcoming Top Challenges during UFT to LeanFT Migration

Earlier, in the Waterfall, Spiral and other traditional models of software development, the Software Testing was performed at the end of the Software development life cycle (SDLC) due to which defects or bugs were identified at the end of the SDLC that needed additional timelines for fixation and finally ended up with disparity in agreed timelines for quality product delivery. Today’s enterprises demand agility and quickness towards release of quality products that is possible only through effective automation testing using best test automation tools. The agile methodology follows the sprint concept; few features are developed and tested in parallel which demands Shift-Left approach; the practice of integration and testing at every phase of the software development life cycle. Thus, the Software testing life cycle (STLC) has taken a Shift left practice with the test automation being performed in parallel with development.
