C1 Solutions recently completed the three month TOSCA Certified Implementation Partner Program (TCIP) that culminates with the presentation of a complex software testing case study which spans advance business processes. The C1 delivered case study was reviewed by TOSCA experts to ensure that C1 is fully competent to implement TOSCA Testsuite for software quality assurance, software testing, test automation and end-to-end test management. C1 Solutions has completed all of the requirements of the TRICENTIS’ training program and is now a TOSCA Certified Implementation Partner (TCIP), and fully able to extend the scope of its consulting services. In this way, C1 will be able to provide more effective and efficient test automation services to the outsourced and managed services testing markets.
“Today many of the software tests that are being conducted manually could be covered via test automation which yields increases in the quality of software testing and reduces the effort or test maintenance,” states Gartner Research Director Thomas Murphy. “However, a test automation suite needs appropriate planning and implementation. The key benefit of test automation is reduction in time to find defects. Test automation success requires a combination of planning, commitment and well-trained testers. Tools alone won't save you without skills.”
The TCIP Education Program was designed for business partners that have comprehensive and qualified know-how in professional software quality assurance. TOSCA makes it possible to gain higher levels of test automation coverage and the ability to develop a test case once and reuse it across multiple technologies and platforms such as GUI, Non-GUI, JAVA, .NET, SAP, cross-browser and smart device/mobile. C1 Solutions and TOSCA customers can now achieve up to 95% of test automation coverage with 50% reduced maintenance effort.
Torsten Wegener, CEO of C1 Solutions, states: “Our recipe for success is the way in which we deliver efficient project management for sustainable customer financial performance –even in difficult economic times. Our focus is on optimizing and automating business processes in medium-sized and large companies which includes software testing, quality assurance and leveraging TOSCA’s Linear Q℠ methodology in the SAP customer community. With TOSCA, we can now provide our customers with more effective test management that is tailored precisely to their needs and quickly leads to more automation along with lower maintenance efforts. Over time our customers can realize significant cost savings.”

The TOSCA model-based approach marks a paradigm shift in automated testing, empowering non-technical users to quickly create and maintain automated business test cases in plain English and configure them for multiple operating systems, browsers, and smart devices. TOSCA’s OneView℠ Technology sets TOSCA apart from any competition by enabling business skilled testers to deal with every aspect of functional software tests: UI and nonUI test cases. The result: One test team uses one test solution and covers all integration - and UAT Tests as well as service virtualization. TOSCA offers certified integration with SAP, popular application lifecycle management (ALM) and defect tracking solutions, and other testing solutions for medium, large and global enterprises. TOSCA Testsuite was designed with best practices in mind.
Linear Q is TRICENTIS’ unique, comprehensive test methodology, embedded throughout TOSCA Testsuite, which optimizes the effectiveness of software testing by allowing to determine the minimal number of test cases required for a desired and tangible test coverage. That leads to minimal cost with less effort and reduced risk. Linear Q begins with a functional segmentation and risk weighting. Based on that, sound methodological approaches are being used with TOSCA Test Case Design to ensure that the “right” test cases are being determined – producing test results in relation to the risk-based structure.
In practice, Linear Q delivers more than 90% test coverage with a manageable number of test cases and cost. TOSCA’s superior automation capabilities enable to automate these test cases leading to 85% “test coverage by automation” for complex systems and business processes. TOSCA Testsuite addresses and optimizes both: effectiveness and efficiency.
