Spacewell Germany is a leading software developer of real estate management solutions. The software products iX-Haus and iX-Haus plus enable the commercial and technical management of real estate of all asset classes during the usage phase. Spacewell Germany develops the software solutions functionally continuously. For the users it is important that a constant stability of the programs and the data security is guaranteed. Therefore, the company conducts regular software tests with aqua.

Challenge

The Spacewell products iX-Haus and iX-Haus plus enable the management of real estate during use. This requires a test case management tool that meets the following requirements:

  1. Adherence to high security standards, including those of the banking and insurance industry (IDW-PS-880)
  2. Control of test automation based on comprehensive test management
  3. Improvement of efficiency and quality in test execution
Solution
  • Implementation of the module “Test Management” including a 4-fold validation of the test scenarios through automated testing
  • Ensuring compliance with the high regulatory requirements (IDW-PS-880), including traceability of project history
  • Ensuring consistent data and effective test control with individual connection to automation agent (Ranorex)
  • Implementation of an early warning system for failed test cases by setting up automated emails
Result

The certification according to IDW-PS-880 by the external audit ran absolutely smoothly. During the inspection not only the test is checked, but also the development and the test process. Thanks to the tracability ensured by aqua, the complete test procedure could be documented and traced in a sustainable manner.
A more effective project management of the test case data is now also possible – as well as agile team collaboration by exchanging the relevant test data. The assured high quality of its own software has become a decisive sales argument and competitive advantage for Spacewell Germany.

Project Facts

700+ productive test cases every week
100.000+ Test cases per year
100% Certified in accordance with IDW-PS-880

Fiducia & GAD IT AG is the service provider for information technology within the cooperative financial group. The aim of the company is to strengthen the success of its customers through competitive IT solutions and services. The company is aware of its enormous responsibility and needs the highest quality software products. To meet this demand, Fiducia relies on aqua, a mature tool that supports the process of software development and testing.

Challenge
  1. Standardization of the tool landscape for test management
  2. Migration of the extensive software projects from the HP (Micro Focus) Quality Center into an agile and sustainable testing solution
  3. Replace the internal test management solution based on IBM Notes
Solution
  • Development of an own migration tool which reads all data from the Quality Center, converts it into a suitable form and writes it to aqua
  • Thanks to special methods, the file history of each element is preserved and thus ensures revision security throughout the migration
  • Ensuring the complete project history in the “Test executions” and “Results” areas for at least ten years fulfilled
Result

The aqua migration tool has proven itself in the enormous size of this project and can therefore also be used in the future for migrations from the Quality Center to aqua of any size. The migration of the production environment could take place in live operation, which meant that no downtimes were necessary. The most important test data of by far the largest project could be migrated to aqua in less than 2 days.

Project facts

66 migrated Quality Center projects
7 mio+ migrated Elements
100% Preservation of revision security
50% faster migration than a QC upgrade with data transfer

 

We let our customers speak for themselves

I was impressed by the fact that such a large project with data transfer ran relatively more smoothly than a version upgrade of the Quality Center with project migration. We are happy to have chosen aqua.
