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.

Recent updates

FIRE Church

We built this site with Drupal, adding some custom PHP features to fit the client's hosting company, also integrating an ASP web app from the legacy site that was still in use.

Colorado Blind Crafter

We designed this site using Ruby on Rails, along with the Spree e-commerce framework, for the purpose of selling vertical window blinds online. The site allows shoppers to customize the size, style, and hardware for each window covering, with realtime price estimates.

SHRM LINE

We redesigned this web application using Ruby on Rails, to replace a legacy MS Access system which our client found too limiting and difficult to maintain. This application is for maintaining a database of employment statistics based on a monthly survey, and generating periodic reports of the expected fluctuations in various job markets. We designed the new application using a business-driven development (BDD) approach, writing test scenarios in Cucumber prior to developing each feature.

Grinder Webtest

This custom module for the Grinder load testing framework allows execution of Visual Studio "webtest" files. It supports parameterization, capturing of variables in HTTP responses, and response validation using regular expressions. Test scripts may be logically grouped into test sets, allowing them to share variables and captured values. Test sets can be run sequentially, randomly, in a specific thread, or according to a percentage-based weighting.

CSVSee

CSVSee is a collection of tools to manipulate and visualize comma-separated (CSV) data.

It was originally created to graph data from Grinder and Windows Performance Monitor, but is general-purpose enough to create time-based graphs of just about any numerical CSV data.
