Looking for POC or Eval Samples for TestComplete

We are looking at doing a POC on TestComplete. I have been asked to create the POC Plan. I thought rather than re-creating the wheel, I would see if there were any users in the community that have POC'd TestComplete? If so, would you be willing to share your POC Plan so that I can get an idea of what I should be thinking about?  It would be nice if SmartBear shared customer POC results so that we could all learn from them given the POC's are free of private company information.  I'm just looking for a good format with general idea's of what to test out and how to score the results.

Thanks!

Re: Looking for POC or Eval Samples for TestComplete

Truthfully, a POC is taylored a lot to your organizational needs.  You should design and plan around, perhaps, the following:

 

1) Does TestComplete work for automating the types of applications we develop?

2) Does TestComplete work well for automating applications developed using our platform (Delphi, MVC, .NET, etc)?

3) Does TestComplete provide the output reporting we require?

4) Does TestComplete support the types of workflows we require?

 

You can get all sorts of stuff about the specifics of the TestComplete feature set from the documentation and sales literature.  But a POC is, truthfully, "Does it work for US in OUR specific situation?"  And the only person who can write that kind of document is you.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

Re: Looking for POC or Eval Samples for TestComplete

For POC on any tool, I follow the below steps.

1. Do a recording using the tool

2. Identify the application objects using Object Spy

3. Idenfity the Dynamic Objects and Try to handle

4. Identify few complex scenarios and try to automate

5. Show a demo on Simple flow of the application by automation using the tool

Okay. Thanks!

I was thinking a POC was a bit more than that. Like an Excel spreadsheet with a list of scenarios and a worksheet for each scenario with steps to complete to verify that the tool does what you expect or need.  I could probably build something like that out of your response.

Re: Looking for POC or Eval Samples for TestComplete

I agree. I was looking for more of a format or template to use to apply my organizations needs and uses for TestComplete. I have a few of my own but was looking to see what others do, in an attempt to see if something jumps out at me as something to add to the POC templates I already have.

Thanks for the suggestions.
