Automation nowadays rarely takes place in a single isolated system. In most cases, it involves a combination of systems -internal and external- which together form a chain supporting a specific business process. The more links a chain includes, the greater the risk of a fault.
Companies are often confronted with entire departments grinding to a complete halt because a complex chain of systems is not functioning properly. Even the smallest disturbance can lead to a complete standstill of the entire chain. This may result in loss of turnover, expensive recovery procedures and frustrated users.
The purpose of this white paper is to provide insight into risk-based end-to-end testing and offer a practical guide for organizing such a test project.
