The Wonderful Company (TWC) is a privately held $5 billion firm based in Los Angeles, California. Since their founding in 1979, TWC has provided high-quality and healthy brands that allow consumers to live brighter and happier lives. TWC is associated with such household names like POM Wonderful and Fiji Water.

So why did TWC need test automation?

The Wonderful Company implemented an Oracle Cloud system for their growing business needs. And, of course, they had to go through Oracle Cloud's quarterly updates, which required day-one testing to stay up. To make sure their vital end-to-end business processes would function as intended even after Oracle Cloud updates go live, they required a quick, robust, and risk-based test automation strategy.

How did Opkey help The Wonderful Company achieve a 90% reduction in defect leakage and 80% test coverage for Oracle Cloud Update Testing?

Let’s jump in.

The Challenges: Testing Pressures Increase During Oracle Cloud Updates  

  1. The Wonderful Company uses the Finance and Supply Chain Management (SCM) modules in Oracle Cloud. Their Oracle environment has 300-400 integrations with outside applications, making it quite complex.
  1. They were unable to implement a rigorous continuous testing process with manual testing. Manual methods of testing were draining staff resources and limiting their ability to take full advantage of new updates and features.
  1. Bottlenecks were especially harmful to the business during Oracle updates, as the Wonderful Company needed to regression test 1,100 different business processes and scenarios.
