A three-stage testing engagement was recommended that included:
The testing approach for the Murex upgrade involved a go-live testing strategy for integration and sanity testing. After a detailed analysis of business test scenarios, Virtusa recommended functional and regression testing to ensure maximum test coverage.
The solution included defect management and root cause analysis for UAT and production defects. It also included dress rehearsal before moving to the production environment. Key technologies included Murex Ver 3.0, MXML, MSL, XSL and XSLT, Datamart, Sybase, ALM 11.0, and JIRA. Virtusa prepared robust business test scenarios and a test strategy to assess whether the application when stressed under varying scenarios yielded better outcomes. It was ensured that the library of customizable test cases was reusable across environments and easily upgraded across Murex releases. The solution helped accelerate configuration of test packages, trade insertions, events, processing script execution and result analysis. Virtusa implemented the solution through a co-managed onsite/offshore model.
