Automation Excellence (AE), located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, has a combined experience of over 20 years of Software Quality Assurance (SQA) leadership. We specialize in Agile software delivery utilizing a test first delivery model. AE begins and ends with the end user defining the acceptance test criteria, using a wiki-based single source of information to drive the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) and transform that information into built in verification suites on enterprise level applications. AE services vertical markets in Learning Management Systems, Content Management Systems, HealthCare, government, manufacturing, telephony and defense. Our horizontal technical expertise is detailed, driving value and lower costs by measuring metrics within each tier of a software system.

In today's complex information age, verification expertise qualifies as the top level of knowledge necessary to bring a robust production system to market. AE has amassed experience on Moodle, Drupal, ERP, CRM, Trizetto FACETS, Oracle CDC, PeopleSoft, Oracle Apps, Siebel, Lawson and many corporate web based systems. Our “test first” Agile system integration development model has proven its value by producing high ROI code frameworks that have test automation built into our streamlined "Common Sense" process. See our portfolio for a sampling of the work we have done.

AE utilizes a web based Project Management tool to track our weekly progress report card and monthly steering committee review process. Our cost and value competitive approach increases the number of test verification cycles and subsequently the lines of code coverage during each SDLC phase. AE embraces Agile teams and we staff with the highest quality computer programmers, driving innovative solutions to our client's software requirements.

Internet Explorer 31-stylesheet limit

After half an hour of editing ie6.css and wondering why the heck my customizations weren't actually showing up in MSIE, I came across a bit of CSS trivia that I'd forgotten, if I ever knew it at all: Internet Explorer can only load 31 stylesheets. Maybe this is due to the stylesheets being indexed by a 5-bit number? I can't imagine a logical reason for such an arbitrary limit.

SHRM India

For this project, we developed several Drupal modules to customize the site behavior and user experience. We were also responsible for content management, documentation, and deployment to staging and production environments.

Pulte Homes

We have performed ongoing load tests of Pulte's internal home selection and property maintenance applications, using a variety of tools including LoadRunner and Visual Studio.

Acushnet

We have run several different load tests for the Acushnet Golf company, primarily to evaluate the performance of their customized order management software. We were able to simulate a load of hundreds of users via Grinder, along with custom tools we developed such as Grinder Webtest.

Nordic Workstation

We did a series of load tests in order to simulate the performance effects of hundreds of users on a complex Adobe Flex stock ticker application. Scenarios were recorded using Grinder, capturing HTTP requests that we later customized to inject unique session identifiers for each user during playback.
