“If you are supporting software that is delivered via a SaaS model, you cannot afford to skimp on regression testing. In today’s fast-paced environment, at BlackLine, we decided, automation was the only option to stay ahead of the curve. But automation is not everything; we want to deliver continuous quality to our users in the most effective manner. To achieve that goal, together with XBOSoft, we have set up a maintainable automation framework,” says Donna.
Phil adds “With BlackLine’s software offered in a SaaS environment, performance is another key issue because users expect the software to behave as if it was installed on their desktop. In order to achieve this, we developed performance benchmarks combined with periodic performance tests to monitor the performance of the software under various scenarios. The data we gather from these tests is used to further improve the performance.”
