World’s largest learning company with 40K employees in more than 70+ countries used cloud-based automation testing for an online assessment solution.
The need for cloud services continues to grow at a rapid pace this year too. Gartner predicts that by 2020, the shift to the cloud will have impacted business decisions worth about 1 trillion dollars. The main reason for this increase in growth is because cloud is considered one of the key elements to accelerate software development as it offers several benefits like parallel execution, continuous delivery, reduced infrastructure cost and the most important one being scalability.
As businesses grow, the services and product lines grow too, and development and testing becomes a cumbersome process. This is exactly the problem this learning company faced. They are piled up with various products which are specialized for online schools, students, institutions across the country serving specific needs. For each product, there are around 2000+ test cases to be executed in different environments manually before deploying it into production.

In this fast moving world, where every product has to hit the market at unprecedented speed, they needed a dynamic and efficient testing process.
