The client faced challenges in integrating financial data across various ERP systems, essential for their digital transformation journey.

Project Overview

Our objective was to seamlessly integrate HighRadius FTP files with multiple ERP systems, facilitating efficient data communication and workflow.

Challenges

  • Absence of dedicated QA resources for integration testing.
  • Expanding scope of integration across multiple companies and document types.
  • Time-consuming manual processes for testing and log analysis.

Our Approach

Analysis & Strategy

Our QA team conducted a comprehensive analysis of the existing integration process, identifying over 30 systems across different locations. We designed bespoke logging templates for each scenario, focusing on the accurate status of integrations.

Technical Solution

We utilized JMeter, an open-source Java tool, customizing it for high-volume data processing and performance testing. Our solution included specialized controllers for scenario-specific testing and automated generation of detailed evidence files.

Implementation

Our optimized script, executable on any Java-enabled platform, fully automated the previously manual process. It facilitated immediate generation and dissemination of reports, significantly enhancing efficiency.

Results

  • Automation replaced over 95% of manual tasks, transforming log checking and data entry processes.
  • Tasks requiring 2 days of manual effort now completed in under 5 minutes.
  • Automated visual reports streamlined the QA workflow.

Performance Metrics

  • Dramatic reduction in manual effort and error rates.
  • Significant time savings, enhancing overall project efficiency.

Business Impact

  • Boosted development efficiency, optimizing product development and delivery.
  • Enhanced reporting accessible to all stakeholders, facilitating better decision-making.
