Agile Testing with The APEX Test Automation Framework, Simon Hunt, MOD Tue, Sep 12, 2017 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM MDT Delivering working, tested APEX applications frequently, can only be achieved with automated browser tests that often require specialist programming skills. Augmenting an Agile team with specialist automation testers reduces the flexibility of the team and increases the cost and time of development. APEX by its very nature, contains an up-to-date user interface map that documents all the components of an application, which when combined with an action and data can be used to generate an automated test script. The APEX Test Automation Framework (ATAF) is an open source APEX project that requires no specialist knowledge and can be used to build highly maintainable automated browser scripts. ATAF uses only documented and supported APIs and best of all, it’s written in APEX! so, it can be adapted, supported and maintained by the development team adopting it. This Webinar covers the theory, installation, real world examples and basic use of ATAF and provides an opportunity to ask questions directly to the creator and developer of ATAF.

Handling Textual Data in Planning and Essbase: A Starbucks Case Study Thu, Sep 14, 2017 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM MDT Handling text data in a Hyperion Planning application is relatively easy and straightforward. Planning metadata is stored in a relational database. This textual information is accessible via web forms, HFR, and Smart View out-of-the-box. On the other hand, managing and reporting on text data is not quite as simple in the Essbase technology. Essbase handles dates and smart lists but can’t handles freeform text values. The situation is further complicated by the fact that your smart lists need to be synchronized between Planning and Essbase for the data transfer to be accurate. In this session, Juan Porter, TopDown Consulting, and Rhonda Brigham, Starbucks, will discuss how they used a creative approach to get text data in three different forms–smart lists, dates and freeform text data–to flow from Planning to Essbase. They will discuss the overall project goals, technologies, POCs, and the reason for choosing the solution they did, including design and results.
