Testing Methodologies Characteristics
Ad-hoc
•
•
•

•
15
Oracle EBS system is stable, minimal changes
Use email to communicate testing tasks
No test catalog (no test scenarios)
Test runs need not be documented
No test automation

How Panaya Addresses Your Testing Needs
Ad-hoc
•
•
•
•
•
16
Visibility into testing progress
Visibility into business process testing coverage
Improved test run documentation
Improved defect management
Specific implementation methodology: onboarding &
ongoing
Copyright © Panaya
Testing Methodologies Characteristics
Organized
• Excel to manage & track testing process
• Rely on Business Process owners knowledge (SME) to
execute the test
• Test scenarios documented up to the transaction level in
Word/Excel
• Low use of test automation

Testing Methodologies Characteristics
Scripted
• Excel to manage & track testing process
• Tests executed by non-SME (QA Team, Offshore or System
Integrator)
• Test scenarios documented to the screen/field level in
Word/Excel
• Likely to use test automation

Integrated Test Coverage Assessment
(via automated impact analysis simulation)
1. Panaya impact analysis
identifies required unit
tests for project
3. Adjust testing scope
- risk of failure (for
upgrade or patching)
- business usage
2. Panaya code analysis automatically
identifies which functional tests are
covering those unit tests
30

Integrated Test Coverage Assessment
(via automated impact analysis simulation)
1. Panaya impact analysis
identifies project code
corrections impacting each
functional scenario
31
2. Panaya marks functional scenario as “not
ready to test” due to pending project code
corrections. When code corrections
completed, status changes to “ready to
test”, and tester is notified.
