Close the gaps between system implementation and business requirements with Model Based Testing

Today more than ever, the success or failure of a financial services institution is intricately linked to the quality of its information and systems. IT quality is achieved and maintained through software testing, and one of the most time-consuming and resource-intensive tasks of software testing is the creation of test scripts. Test scripts are used to verify that the final software implementation matches the original functional specification. Scripts are written to ensure that a new application will support the associated business processes and perform well enough to meet a project’s business objectives, as well as the expectations of users and stakeholders.

Model based testing is a methodology and IT toolset designed to accelerate the creation of test scripts. Under the current method, test professionals must manually create each test script and use case. This task requires both testing skills and domain expertise to build scripts and cases to test financial services applications.
