Business Challenges
All organizations are under pressure to reduce costs and improve quality, whilst keeping pace
with new technologies and practices. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Cloud are emerging to
become the predominant business models and creating disruption in the testing tools market.
The traditional focus has been to test same specific activities (load, stress, functional,
regression).
Economic conditions and pressure to improve time to market are placing increased emphasis on
productivity and moving away from the shadow of shrink-wrapped software and towards the
future of Cloud & SaaS models. With poor software quality leading to user dissatisfaction as
well as increased development and maintenance costs, good quality assurance is an essential
but costly process.
Therefore, having a well-defined testing software tool and practices to drive software quality
will positively affect the overall bottom line of the business.
Validata TestCloud™
Unlike traditional tools, Validata SAS validates Core Banking systems, aligns testing to business
requirements whilst improving productivity and automation coverage, and achieves reduced test cycle
times in all phases of testing. Service offerings and flexible pricing schemes are all part of the unique
offering of TestCloud™.
TestCloud™ is a standardized Test ‘Utility’ solution with well-defined
best practices, test automation, re-usable test assets and standards,
robust defect and change management processes, and enhanced
ROI.
TestCloud™ enables customers to move away from unstable
environments, limited centralized governance and high costs of
quality, and establish their own test environment in the cloud
leveraging pre-built test cases and Validata SAS automated solution
that can reduce test effort by a factor of as much as ten to one.

Model Bank Testing Accelerators
Access to a library of pre-built reusable test cases and business workflows, which enable you to
jumpstart your testing projects and substantially reduce the effort of testing. These test cases are
the foundation for end-to-end automated testing of the complete Temenos T24™ stack from
Country Model Bank, to ISB and Local Code.
 Our testing accelerators allow Validata Test Factory™ 2.0
to jump start our clients implementation by having up to
80% of the core Test Cases and Test Steps available
immediately testing begins.
 The structure provides a ‘ready-to-use’ set of test
scenarios, grouped into logical functions and based on the
major banking business functions (i.e. Loans, deposits,
FX...), providing re-usability.
 Reusability is the key driver in reducing costs. As a limited
amount of customization will be required, the cost of
implementing Validata is significantly reduced.
Extend your test coverage with Validata SAS!
Validata Adapters
An Adapter is a component which connects Validata SAS to external systems and data
sources to enable quality automated testing:
Validata SAS acquires appropriate
information from the software application
under test using our unique adaptor
technology
