Providing Automation Testing Services to a world leading air transport IT and communication specialist, digitizing and automating its airport deployment strategy, integrating various platforms and applications into a single reusable deployment package.
Aspire’s input directly contributed to Client’s Airport Management System business objectives:
- Robust and efficient operational planning;
- Proactively control real-time operations;
- Continuously improve business results and;
- Enable systems integration across many environments.
Part of Client’s work program was to test and assure that airports are built based on a set of complexes, globally acceptable and specific standards. Downtime impacts CLIENT’s reputation for operational excellence.
Testing sites (airports) manually to assure that all servers and workstations are configured as required is a time-consuming process and requires 100% accuracy.
Operating in a complex, and integrated environment with several network topologies required a steep learning curve.
Availability of real sites for testing.
Dynamic requirements: large number of changes made after code completion.
Observed a large variety of special use cases and third-party integrations required extended research times.
Due to the closed operating environment, Aspire initiated a pilot project to evaluate the technical output and provide the estimation strategy.
Following the pilot, Aspire continued supporting the client by creating an automation project to validate selected processes:
– Devices and servers configurations
– Installations (services, such as databases)
– Group policies updates on domain controllers
– Active directory tasks (create users, etc)
– Windows OS services configuration
– Create and maintain registry keys
Developed automated scripts which were executed on:
– All Airport Devices and Severs
– Over LAN and WAN
Sample of tested Countries.
A reduction of the total airport setup verification process time from 4 days to less than 6 hours per airport, enabling multiple airport to be setup simultaneously, smaller teams, shortened completion times.
Reduction by 10- 15% of the “Human Error” Factor, resulting more accurate results.
Instant Reporting via Email confirmation resulted less downtime for Test engineers, better reporting accuracy for Implementation engineers and clear visibility for Management.
