Manual & Automation Tests for Banking Applications

About Customer

Customer is a leading software solution provider for banking & financial domain in The UK. Some of the leading banks of England and Scotland are it’s customers and custom VAS applications for banks are being developed and deployed for their business class end users.

Test Requirements

As a part of the Domain Independent Test Services, we worked for two bank’s VAS Applications UAT and Test Automation for the solution. The banking applications were developed and deployed by a Top Tier IT Services provider of India, and we were empanelled as a test service provider for UAT. The test requirements included a wide variety of areas including functional test, regression test, performance test, stress test, security tests. Test Automation was done using Selenium and Appium.

The Business Case Challenge

Primary challenges of any banking application testing are security & performance. The VAS applications for the two banks had the scope to verify the functionalities during the UAT phase, but security and performance tests are part of the deliverables. Verifying the banking applications with all use cases and applying different types of security vulnerability use cases are always challenging.

OdiTek’s Solution

Based on the Requirement Traceability Matrix, quality assurance team brought up the test strategy, functional test plans, security test plans, performance test plans and over all UAT Strategy. Test Automation was part of the test solution & performed for both the bank VAS products. Usage of 3rd party tools done for security as well as performance tests.

At a Glance

This is a proprietary confidential banking application test project where two leading banks of The UK and Scotland were deploying a VAS application into their application intended for their business customers. The VAS applications included multiple packages and kits for small and medium sized businesses, and the project scope required to conduct functional tests, security, performance tests and the entire phase of UAT towards successful production.

OdiTek, with more than 15+ years of test automation & domain independent testing expertise successfully collaborated with the customer from the requirements phase to post-production phase.
