Challenged by frequent releases and demands for shorter test cycles? Are your functional test maintenance costs too high? Adopt the HP Business Process Testing (HP BPT) framework and move from one-off manual testing and ad-hoc functional test automation to an architected approach creating a library of re-useable test components. HP BPT accelerates the move to Component Based Testing: an integrated approach to creating a repository of reusable test modules that allow for changes to be made once then propagated across your distributed agile teams to all impacted tests. Tests become more readable by modeling business processes, more nimble to maintain, and re-useability helps eliminate costly test sprawl and helps testing teams quickly identify new candidates for automation efficiently and effectively. Integrated with HP ALM, HP Quality Center, HP Sprinter and HP UFT, HP BPT simplifies the creation and organization of shareable manual and automated test components always available for on-going testing needs.
