About Halliburton

Halliburton Company is an American multinational corporation and the world’s second largest oil service company and responsible for most of the world’s largest fracking operations. The company helps customers maximize value throughout the lifecycle of the reservoir – from locating hydrocarbons and managing geological data, to drilling and formation evaluation, well construction and completion, and optimizing production throughout the life of the asset.

The Challenges

Sonae’s custom point-of-sales (POS) system is designed around SAP’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software provided the flexibility and manageability required to track, manage, and account for thousands of inventory items and transactions across all retail outlets

However, testing this complex and highly customized system was really challenging. Indeed, the client could automate some component tests, but the critical system testing was still done manually. In addition, testing capacity would soon be outstripped by the speed of change in the company’s transaction models

The Solutions

TestArchitect from LogiGear provided the customization to support both the client’s proprietary POS software and the ERP system

LogiGear’s automation team created custom actions to recognize UI controls of the POS system and created multi-language databases for test purposes

Moreover, LogiGear’s development team worked in parallel with Sonae’s IT staff to automate the complex integration testing, which allowed TestArchitect to interface with both the ERP and POS systems

The Results

The customized automation framework enabled Sonae to automate almost all the POS test cases

The variations feature in TestArchitect allowed a single test case to be executed in multiple languages

Through the ability to carry out data-driven tests, the internal testers could conduct extensive regression testing instantly whenever the client pushed out software updates
