Case Studies Halliburton

Company

(Product Enhancement Toolkit)

Business Needs
and Challenges
Halliburton’s product enhancement (PE) software technology organization develops critical internal enterprise software. The business unit’s two major software products are developed on a Windows platform using the .NET framework. This software is extremely complex with a rich user interface, vast source code, and N-Tier architecture. Software defects have the potential to impact the product quality, thus impacting Halliburton’s ability to provide services to global customers. In order to minimize that risk, extensive testing is performed for every update.
The Solution
LogiGear started the automation effort by creating custom actions in the TestArchitect action library that were unique to PE software. The PE project manager provided domain expertise that helped LogiGear identify an application type of low-level actions that PE testers could then use to assemble a high caliber of business level actions. At the same time, the PE team worked to customize MTM and TestArchitect so that there would be a seamless workflow between the two tools. The objective was to provide testers with a self-serve model that would allow the running of any combination of automated and/or manual tests as needed from within MTM.
Remarks
“LogiGear supplied the automation technology and customized services that were instrumental for us to achieve continuous integration”
