ASB Bank must deliver a banking service that maintains 99.995% availability 365 days of the year to its customers. The ability to conduct accurate testing is critical to achieving such high availability. ASB Bank’s testing requirements span everything from new code and new functionality, to analysing system performance under different loading, and the testing of individual system components such as switches and databases.
Before implementing GFG:FINsim the bank relied on manual testing strategies. These were successful mainly in testing the patience of ASB Bank staff. It was not uncommon for software changes to take three or four production attempts before success was achieved, with each failed attempt resulting in an early morning rollback.
ASB Bank deployed GFG:FINsim to achieve an automated testing strategy that ensures a seamless progression from software development into production, slashing time and cost to market.
