The use of scrum methods in software development necessitates a major shift in testing too, since testing in agile projects differs significantly from classic testing. bbv supported Swisscom by providing agile test experts and achieved a higher test quality.
A complex software solution underpins the familiar Swisscom webpages on which customers can book Internet, phone and TV products depending on the available infrastructure. Swisscom was seeking a specialist to optimise software testing in order to improve agile software development with scrum in the area of testing.
bbv collaborated early on with Swisscom to define and provide test data and develop test cases systematically on the basis of user stories. Thanks to continuous integration, new software could be tested immediately using the test cases following a regression test. This freed up capacities in Swisscom’s scrum team and increased the test quality significantly.
