Challenge

Redwood’s quality goals were:

To increase their confidence in software releases by expanding their testing coverage and performing more “exploratory testing”.

To reduce the testing burden placed on software engineers so that internal team could focus more on new feature development.

To modernize its environment, enable business growth, and support a series of business acquisitions.

Redwood’s goals at the outset included:

Active consulting, collaboration, and participation in QA and testing strategy

Predictable budget

Organized internal QA processes and accelerated software delivery

Organized internal DevOps processes that would transform legacy projects into Azure Cloud

Solution features

Assigned a cross-functional, on-site product team to quickly and iteratively improve the product suite

Integrated an effective way to track, measure, and analyze all testing workflows within Redwood delivery teams

Developed a modern test automation framework that enabled efficient automated test creation for both UI and API level tests

Migrated legacy projects into Azure Cloud and Azure DevOps

Redesigned the test automation framework

Improved stability and scalability through automated testing

Outcome

Forte Group quickly learned the process and has jumped in contributing to one of Redwood’s most successful releases. Forte’s team has seamlessly integrated with Redwood’s product team and continues its work of implementing the DevOps processes and modernizing structures.
