Major competitor solutions for scheduling and automation are covered with a tool that automates the migration minimizing manual intervention.

Manual intervention is required to assess specific customer requests about specific customizations made for the original scheduling solution.

The HCL WA migration team automates this process with a migration tool, and accompanies you through the transition, every step of the way, with a proven 4-step methodology:

  1. Workload assessment: Definition of the migration project details and pre-requisites of the new architecture infrastructure.
  2. Infrastructure deployment: Installation of the Workload Automation infrastructure and an initial education session to enable the customer to review and validate the migrated of data.
  3. Data migration: Scheduling object definitions are migrated, and the converted data is sent to the customer in subsets of scheduling definitions for validation.
  4. Go-live and enablement: When all of the data have been migrated and approved by the customer, the legacy solution is dismissed and replaced with Workload Automation.  Some additional sessions are provided that perform a deep dive into specific product configurations and to satisfy additional customer requirements.

A.I.-driven test creation
We can all agree that if artificial intelligence could be used to automatically create test cases and then execute them, we would be able to overcome the challenge of how to traverse the path from manual to automation without blowing one’s budget. There is also no doubt that the software testing process continues to include a significant amount of manual activity thus, making applying A.I. a suitable solution for applying a variety of areas of software testing to help improve efficiency and quality. Of course, there are challenges such as quality, speed and cost. However, a recent study by Dimensional Research shows that most enterprise IT testing is run manually with an annual cost of $120 billion. Whereas, automated testing is at $30 billion a year. Now imagine having a plugin that enables you to go further, faster. Using advanced A.I.-driven NLP techniques, testers can now quickly and simply convert existing manual test cases into fully-automated test scripts. To learn more about how easy it is to convert a manual test case from MS Excel or any ALM into an automated one (complete with a supporting network), click here.
