A-Cube (Astegic Automation Accelerators), Astegic’s Testing toolkit, offers enhanced productivity to clients by accelerating selection, deployment and test automation execution throughout the SDLC – right from the requirement analysis phase, through to automation and delivery.

A-Cube comprises of Requirement Analysis Frameworks (TRAF), QA Automation Accelerators for Web (CRAFT) and Mobile (MTAA), Pro-Agile delivery frameworks (KDEFT) and Model-based testing methodologies using proprietary, open source and third party tools.

Astegic Automation Accelerators

CRAFT

Client-Ready Automation Framework for Testing

Identifying, procuring and selecting the right automation tools and frameworks can be time and cost intensive. To overcome this challenge, and thus enable its clients in rapid selection and deployment of QA automation for functional and regression testing, Astegic has developed a comprehensive QA Automation acceleration framework. CRAFT enables companies to cut test efforts significantly, enabling them to consistently meet their software release targets and reduce time to market.

MTAA

Mobile Test Automation Accelerator

With growing device diversity, and multiple operating systems versions across Android, iOS and Windows mobile out in the market, mobile application testing can be challenging. To help its clients overcome the challenges associated with mobile application testing, and to turn them into new business opportunities and additional revenue streams, Astegic has developed a mobile test automation acceleration framework. MTAA speeds up test automation by streamlining QA efforts and simplifying the mobile automation process.

TRAF

Testing Requirement-Analysis Framework

Early introduction of requirement analysis helps QA teams to collaborate with development teams in the identification of complex requirements early enough to develop thorough tests ahead of the code’s arrival. However, with increasing complexity of software applications, validating QA/Testing requirement specifications is not as straightforward. TRAF helps in rapid QA/Testing project set-ups, in turn speeding up the software’s release cycles, and ultimately helping businesses achieve speed to market.

AGEFT

Agile Guidance Engagement Framework for Testing

AGEFT (Agile Guidance Engagement Framework for Testing) is a comprehensive “Agile Guide” comprising of Scrum, Kanban and Scrumban driven engagement frameworks for testing. The engagement processes constituting these frameworks address the most common challenges companies typically face while engaging with extended QA teams in an outsourced or onshore/offshore model. AGEFT address one of the most key challenges in Agile-driven development and testing— that is, effective delivery. Too many choices across Agile models can lead to confusion with no choice being made by clients being stalled in analysis paralysis. Astegic’s Agile Guidance addresses this challenge by helping clients choose the right Agile engagement methodology best suited to their project needs.

SDEFT

Scrum Driven Engagement Framework for Testing

SDEFT (Scrum Driven Engagement Framework for Testing) addresses client concerns of testing and implementing new requirements to get committed stories and their acceptance criteria, and accordingly define a high level test strategy for the whole release. The intent is to get maximum coverage and limit the number of story points going into the next sprint, helping development teams accelerate build releases. It resolves the critical client concerns of quality, agility, cost effectiveness, quicker ROI and speed to market. SDEFT introduces a set of practices that create a flexible framework allowing consistent and predictable result delivery. The major challenge of the Waterfall model is overcome through inclusion of the decision makers’ inputs in real time, thus allowing us to work hand in hand with the collaborative partner.

SBDEFT

Scrumban Driven Engagement Framework for Testing

SBDEFT (Scrumban Driven Engagement Framework for Testing) uses a blend of both SDEFT and KDEFT methodologies. It combines the basic features of Scrum with high level of organization, while also offering the flexibility of Kanban with WIP limits that assist in reducing the amount of tasks to be worked on at one time.

KDEFT

Kanban Driven Engagement Framework for Testing

The need for agility and reduced time to market requires pushing the traditional outsourced model – nearshore and offshore – toward a new, more dynamic engagement approach. We capitalized on the proven methods and processes that we have been successfully using with our clients over the past decade, and developed a QA engagement framework modeled around Kanban. KDEFT (Kanban-Driven Engagement Framework for Testing) addresses critical client concerns of speed, agility and communication throughout the SDLC and across time zones.
