Our client, a challenger bank specialising in credit card provision, was enjoying significant growth. The bank had a portfolio of in-flight and upcoming agile projects to deliver new products and processes to facilitate this growth and the build teams were delivering components such as mobile applications and application programme interfaces (APIs).
The client’s business-critical digital projects were focused on the delivery of a new mobile application for credit cards and a set of APIs, which would integrate with and provide services to various third parties. Speed to market was of the essence and central to this was the use of agile and DevOps, which would allow the bank to release code swiftly. To enable the rapid launch of these products, test automation plays a vital role, as continuous testing is needed to keep pace with the development cycle. Triggering automated tests gives developers the instant feedback they need to find out what is broken, enable them to quickly fix it and move on.
