Test Management / Test Automation

ALM Atlassian JI Xray ...

Consulting on how to replace the former test management solution based on OpenText ALM (formerly Micro Focus ALM / HP ALM, or HP Quality Center) with Atlassian Jira with all the relevant software testing plugins, particularly Xray Test Management for Jira.

This gives Siemens one common Jira platform for all development, testing, and DevOps activities. Results of all automated tests (particularly Java and Selenium, and OpenText UFT tests) are automatically updated in Jira and Xray Test Management for Jira.

The move to Atlassian Jira reduced the licensing costs from previously several hundred thousands of Euros per year by up to 90%. The work for Siemens included all technical evaluations and the migration of multiple existing Siemens projects.

Technically, the move used Extract, Transform, Load (ETL) principles by extracting data via a REST API from OpenText ALM, transforming, cleaning, and linking the data in a relational database, and inserting the data into Jira and Xray through the Jira and Xray REST API's. The program code was written in Java, using Apache HTTP client and other widely used open source libraries.

The freelancer has developed and introduced multiple test automation frameworks for both web applications and mobile apps on Google Android and Apple iOS. Most of these frameworks are based on Java, TestNG, and Docker. They can be integrated in local Continuous Integration servers such as Jenkins, or cloud solutions and workflows, such as GitHub Actions and Microsoft Azure DevOps.

He used Selenium (WebDriver) in most of his roles since 2007 and has also written multiple guides on how to best use Selenium with Java including Groovy, mobile apps testing on Google Android and Apple iOS with Appium, and Cucumber/Gherkin (available as free PDF documents from https://www.pepgotesting.com/ ).

He is proficient with OpenText Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) test software (formerly Qua­lityCenter) since he worked as a first and second level supporter for test management software at Mercury EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) in 2003/2004. He used OpenText ALM ever since in many different roles and has set it up and customised it (workflows, integration with third-party tools, API programming etc.) many times.


SAP testing experience:

The freelancer has extensive SAP project experience in both functional and performance testing with a total of about 5 years worked in SAP projects. Among other SAP projects, he worked on one of the world?s largest SAP implementations for the majority state-owned oil company Saudi Aramco in Saudi Arabia. Other major SAP testing projects included BHP in The Hague (Netherlands), Nestlé in Sao Paulo (Brazil), Rio Tinto in Brisbane (Australia), Centrica (better known as ?British Gas?) in London (United Kingdom), the chemical giant Lyondellbasell in Cologne (Germany), the Department of Human Services in Brisbane (Australia), the British gas data provider Xoserve in Solihull (United Kingdom), INPEX in Perth (Australia), and TUI Group in Hanover (Germany). He worked with most of the common SAP modules such as Finance, Supply Chain, HR etc., as well as some integrated solutions such as IS-OIL. It is however important to notice that Bruno is an experienced SAP testing specialist (both on SAPGUI for Windows or Java, as well as web), rather than a business expert in any particular SAP module. He does therefore not claim to have functional business knowledge of any particular SAP module.


Roles sought:

He likes to work on projects in any phase from start to finish, including the daily running of testing projects as a test manager (test development and execution, reporting etc.). He likes to be involved in all aspects of software testing, including practical hands-on technical testing. He does not easily get bored and he has plenty of stamina and perseverance. He is adaptive and a quick learner with a broad technical, software testing and general business background and extensive international experience and intercultural competence.

The freelancer likes to work with people and he is a good communicator. His particular strength lies in establishing win?win situations with Subject Matter Experts, who he will often inspire to work closely with the testing team, because he can make them realise that they will enjoy the benefits from working with the development/testing team in the long term by getting better performing and more reliable software to work with. He can convince Subject Matter Experts that testing is a service that works for them.

Due to his diversified background and broad range of experiences and qualifications, he can work through all phases of a Greenfield project from design, through implementation and execution, right through to completion.

The candidate is highly flexible and willing to work internationally, particularly in Europe, the Middle East, and Australia.

ALM Atlassian JI Xray ...

Consulting on how to replace the former test management solution based on OpenText ALM (formerly Micro Focus ALM / HP ALM, or HP Quality Center) with Atlassian Jira with all the relevant software testing plugins, particularly Xray Test Management for Jira.

This gives Siemens one common Jira platform for all development, testing, and DevOps activities. Results of all automated tests (particularly Java and Selenium, and OpenText UFT tests) are automatically updated in Jira and Xray Test Management for Jira.

The move to Atlassian Jira reduced the licensing costs from previously several hundred thousands of Euros per year by up to 90%. The work for Siemens included all technical evaluations and the migration of multiple existing Siemens projects.

Technically, the move used Extract, Transform, Load (ETL) principles by extracting data via a REST API from OpenText ALM, transforming, cleaning, and linking the data in a relational database, and inserting the data into Jira and Xray through the Jira and Xray REST API's. The program code was written in Java, using Apache HTTP client and other widely used open source libraries.

Summary:

The freelancer is an experienced test manager with deep technical knowledge and practical skills in automated software testing. He worked hands-on in many international projects, as well as on a substantial number of hands?off strategic planning and methodology development roles.

His hands?off projects included the implementation of software testing Center of Excellences for the world?s largest oil producer (Saudi Aramco in Saudi Arabia) and the Bureau of Meteorology in Melbourne, Australia. He defined a test strategy for the insurance company Aviva in London, United Kingdom. For the banking group HSBC in London, he defined a global testing tools strategy. For Deutsche Bank in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, he developed a strategy for outsourced performance testing to IBM in Bangalore, India. He conducted test maturity assessments for Allianz insurance in Sydney, Australia, for Patsystems trading and exchange systems in London, and for the Bureau of Meteorology in Melbourne, Australia.

He has knowledge and experience in test management, functional testing, and performance testing, both on a conceptual level, such as developing test strategies, plans, processes and templates, as well as on a practical hands-on level, ranging from writing and executing manual test cases, up to development and implementation of automated test architectures and frameworks in Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery environments.

The freelancer has been involved in building up, mentoring and managing teams in many roles. He has been the test coordinator / test manager of a project with more than 100 testers in Asia, Europe, and North America. He has built up two own companies with employees (including hiring, mentoring and training, reviews, administration etc.). He has practical leadership experience and management credibility. Overall, he has more than 20 years of experience in business and particularly in Information Technology through a wide variety of roles.


Software testing tools experience:

The freelancer has developed and introduced multiple test automation frameworks for both web applications and mobile apps on Google Android and Apple iOS. Most of these frameworks are based on Java, TestNG, and Docker. They can be integrated in local Continuous Integration servers such as Jenkins, or cloud solutions and workflows, such as GitHub Actions and Microsoft Azure DevOps.

He used Selenium (WebDriver) in most of his roles since 2007 and has also written multiple guides on how to best use Selenium with Java including Groovy, mobile apps testing on Google Android and Apple iOS with Appium, and Cucumber/Gherkin (available as free PDF documents from https://www.pepgotesting.com/ ).

He is proficient with OpenText Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) test software (formerly Qua­lityCenter) since he worked as a first and second level supporter for test management software at Mercury EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) in 2003/2004. He used OpenText ALM ever since in many different roles and has set it up and customised it (workflows, integration with third-party tools, API programming etc.) many times.


SAP testing experience:

The freelancer has extensive SAP project experience in both functional and performance testing with a total of about 5 years worked in SAP projects. Among other SAP projects, he worked on one of the world?s largest SAP implementations for the majority state-owned oil company Saudi Aramco in Saudi Arabia. Other major SAP testing projects included BHP in The Hague (Netherlands), Nestlé in Sao Paulo (Brazil), Rio Tinto in Brisbane (Australia), Centrica (better known as ?British Gas?) in London (United Kingdom), the chemical giant Lyondellbasell in Cologne (Germany), the Department of Human Services in Brisbane (Australia), the British gas data provider Xoserve in Solihull (United Kingdom), INPEX in Perth (Australia), and TUI Group in Hanover (Germany). He worked with most of the common SAP modules such as Finance, Supply Chain, HR etc., as well as some integrated solutions such as IS-OIL. It is however important to notice that Bruno is an experienced SAP testing specialist (both on SAPGUI for Windows or Java, as well as web), rather than a business expert in any particular SAP module. He does therefore not claim to have functional business knowledge of any particular SAP module.


Roles sought:

He likes to work on projects in any phase from start to finish, including the daily running of testing projects as a test manager (test development and execution, reporting etc.). He likes to be involved in all aspects of software testing, including practical hands-on technical testing. He does not easily get bored and he has plenty of stamina and perseverance. He is adaptive and a quick learner with a broad technical, software testing and general business background and extensive international experience and intercultural competence.

The freelancer likes to work with people and he is a good communicator. His particular strength lies in establishing win?win situations with Subject Matter Experts, who he will often inspire to work closely with the testing team, because he can make them realise that they will enjoy the benefits from working with the development/testing team in the long term by getting better performing and more reliable software to work with. He can convince Subject Matter Experts that testing is a service that works for them.

Due to his diversified background and broad range of experiences and qualifications, he can work through all phases of a Greenfield project from design, through implementation and execution, right through to completion.

The candidate is highly flexible and willing to work internationally, particularly in Europe, the Middle East, and Australia.
