The Engrossing Story Of OpKey Accelerator

Iffat Ara Khanam 16.02.2020
What has been a month since starting with SSTS feels like an age, which is good because I’m thoroughly enjoying my time here.
 
Way back when I first started, I was green in the face at the thought of making my way to the far unknown, not knowing what to expect. Before joining SSTS, I knew a bit about automation testing. However, it gave me a good starting foundation from which to begin.
 
 
So far I learned the basics of OpKey, its features, and usage. But now it was the time for the game-changer in the world of autonomous testing. Yes, I am talking about OpKey Accelerator. As the name implies “a substance that speeds up a process” OpKey Accelerator speeds up the testing process. Till now, I have learned to record the test case, use the keywords to manually create or script them, and then used them for automated playback and error logging. But what when we have large ERPs like Oracle cloud, Workday, Salesforce, ServiceNow, Oracle EBS, Trackwise, SAP, and Kronos then definitely to act in a smarter way we need to employ a different approach. Well, it's said that “necessity is the mother of invention”, this necessity gave birth to the OpKey Accelerator. Our approach was to identify the pattern used by most of the ERPs. For that, we just do some customization in the pre-build process according to the organization’s requirements. We have predefined test automation components and business processes that allow us to start automating Day Zero. It reduces our testing stress by saving 1000s of working hours compared to manual testing.
 
 
I’m excited to continue my learning journey along with OpKey Accelerator as it's changing the world of test automation at a fast speed. Before some time testing was an event you need to plan for it. But OpKey Accelerator has completely changed the concept of change management. Whenever a new version/patch comes automatic updates are incorporated, the tool locates the change/update, and creates test cases for them. These test cases are executed, reports are generated and bugs are sent to the developers. After bug fixing, they are re-executed. All these processes are performed in such a seamless way that you don’t even need to worry about it. Have you ever imagined change management in such an impeccable way?
 
Although end-to-end change management was a lengthy process like updating on a new patch, bug fixing, and re-execution. But now with OpKey Accelerator enterprises are not wasting time on these things rather they utilize their key resources in other productive works. So employing an autonomous tool like OpKey for their change management puts great value on their business.
 
It is really a revolution in the world of automation testing and has taken it to the next level.
 
I’m now officially an OpKey user and a technical content producer. I’m sure this will bring along a whole new host of challenges to overcome, and many more hair-pulling moments, but I’ve made it this far, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds.
I am very much looking forward to taking the next steps on my path towards this mastery.
