Replay of the ARD community webcast that was held on September 5th 2017.
Topic: CA ARD and Taurus integration
Software testers are under pressure to deliver fully tested software faster than ever before, while also improving quality and driving down project costs. CA Agile Requirements Designer (ARD) is an end-to-end requirements gathering, test case design, and test automation tool which drastically reduces manual testing effort and enables organizations to deliver quality software to market earlier and at less cost. The optimal set of manual or automated tests can be derived automatically from requirements modeled as unambiguous flowcharts and are linked to the right data and expected results. CA ARD can also generate test scripts for various platforms including Selenium and open-source testing framework Taurus using YAML. These YAML scripts along with the Selenium scripts created by CA ARD can automate and execute performance tests.
Taurus allows developers to execute unit level performance tests alongside code development and unit tests without switching context or having to open other tools. In addition, the Taurus and Selenium scripts can be used to execute performance test in the cloud using CA BlazeMeter.
With CA ARD and Taurus integration, software development and test teams can create optimal set of test cases and scripts, automatically execute them locally on their development/test environment or in the cloud. This can help improve test coverage and quality, improve application performance, automate testing, reduce time to market and costs.
