Pharmaceutical companies play an ever increasing role in the treatment and prevention of illnesses. Many leading Pharma companies depend on third-party organizations, like the Almac Group, to help conduct testing, research and trials to improve the overall drug development process.  

Almac is a global leader in contract pharmaceutical development and manufacturing services, and recently deployed scriptless test automation to improve its core business application testing in support of its overall business agility goals.   

This session will focus on how Almac and TurnKey Solutions partnered to successfully shorten test cycles and improve test outcomes - supporting more rapid deployment cycles for core applications and end-to-end business critical processes.

Shauna Quinn, Software Test Manager for Almac, will share recent results and 4 lessons learned in Almac’s implementation of scriptless test automation, including:
  • How to build a better alternative to manual testing methods, which for Almac, previously took 20 people and 12 weeks to run
  • How to streamline operations and shrink testing cycles from multiple weeks to only 3-4 days
  • How automation helped to quickly and easily validate core business systems using a comprehensive regression suite
  • How this intuitive software provided a solid testing strategy moving forward
