Challenge

Focusing on customers that require migration of their existing digital estate, we need to ensure a robust approach to testing and validation.

This is the most important stage of any migration, and for us this breaks down into two key areas.

  1. Platform Verification Testing

Within this area we need to ensure the built components operate as expected, have been built to best practice and have the relevant guardrails in place. The target environment is typically AWS, Azure, GCP or VMware on AWS, and will often be built as Infrastructure as Code.

 2. Workload Testing

The following provides an overview of the migration process, the testing happens in stages 1 (pre-migration) and stage 6 (post migration) with validation of the results, comparing pre and post migration testing results, in stage 7

Currently testing is broken down into:

  • Base Testing (reviews the running state, including running processes and services, and validates booting of the workload)
  • Performance Testing (reviews application performance, responsiveness and may include load testing)
  • Disaster Recovery Testing (validates the disaster recovery configuration)
  • User Acceptance Testing (carried out by the customer)

The aim is to, at a minimum, automate the Base Testing, as this is compulsory and needs to incorporate the pre and post testing elements, the validation of pre vs post and provide status and exception reporting.

Application Deadline: 14th February 2021
