The Solution

Automating data validation for STEP-technology-enabled Master Data Management (MDM) system implementation

Stibo Systems’ STEP Technology platform was used by the client for MDM as part of Product Information Management implementation. An end-to-end validation framework supporting multiple types of validation was the need of the hour for the same.

Infosys developed a validation framework which provided a comprehensive testing solution for PIM implementation validation.

Validation framework supporting multiple validations and an initial real-time data migration of approximately 5 million records were done as part of this engagement.

The complete end-to-end testing framework included the below key components:

  • Java based tool for Integration Testing
  • Custom tool for automated Data Comparison
  • Jmeter based framework for Performance Monitoring
  • Agile dashboards for Status Reporting
  • BDD test framework for Regression Testing

Infosys’ Approach

First of its kind validation framework for Stibo Systems’ STEP technical platform Considering the complex architecture, a complete end-to-end testing framework was developed by Infosys which took care of the inherent limitations of the platform while supporting the complicated business rules and client needs.
