What is legacy testing? 

A legacy software is a software that has been in production for some time. It may have had several successive versions or code refactorings that correctly met the customers needs. The maintenance of this kind of solution can be reduced to a minimum: few evolutions and limited bug fixes. The maintenance can be ensured by a team composed of a part-time single person. This kind of software is "as is" as far as the testing and validation aspects are concerned, and everything is possible: manual tests galore or redundant tests, automated tests on several automation solutions, no data tests, no unit tests...

Why is legacy testing application challenging?

Manual validation

Legacy testing application is done manually by developers or project managers. It is time consuming and it generates roadblocks for development activities.

High maintenance

Legacy application testing inevitably becomes large and complex over the course of a large development project - making it impossible to test manually without consuming significant time and resources.

Poor quality

Legacy testing applications generate too much back and forth with clients, resulting in low quality problems.

Cost management

Legacy testing applications make it hard to maintain or increase the quality at the lowest cost or in check with QA budget.

Streamline tests 

Identifying redundancies that can be removed or maintaining multiple tests can be hard. Reduce the maintenance load of your automated tests because Xpaths are not your friends. Rely on Agilitest to perform highly repetitive tasks with large quantities of data. They can perform these tasks faster and with higher accuracy than humans, and can therefore be used to effectively mitigate risk in this area of testing.

Leverage test validation

Set up a more efficient and comprehensive validation system to test customized software developed for clients.Rely on videos that show your tests at the moment they failed to save you time in analysis.

Get a better path coverage

Customers can now use complex user paths with multiple data, on multiple devices and with multiple navigators. Add depth to your tests by replaying them on extended data, a useful approach when your customers report bugs related to their data.

Improve data-driven testing

 Get the ability to add depth to your tests by replaying them on extended data. Deliver more accurate results when your customers report bugs related to their data.

Save time and money

Eliminate automated tests maintained by developers and reclaim those resources for feature development, because your validation teams can automate tests with Agilitest.
Create complex and scalable automated user interface tests. Quickly produce tests which will cover 80% of your end-to-end business processes and reduce workload and delivery delays.
