Integration and Interoperability Testing

3 Days

"Everyone on an engineering job should take this training." -Meredith Borrero

"Well worth my time, especially due to the detail in the student guide. The instructor's demeanor, combined with his knowledge" -Shannon Klabnik

This course is designed to present strategies and techniques for testing within a framework of diverse technologies and applications. It is assumed that the attendees will have a working knowledge of testing and test terminology. Attendees will learn how to plan, conduct and evaluate tests in diverse technology environments, especially when the applications in those environments interact together. 

The testing of Commercial Off-the-shelf Software (COTS) will be discussed, along with the role of regression testing, configuration management, automated test tools and ongoing validation in diverse technical environments. 

Attendees will leave this course with a solid foundation for testing in situations which are very diverse and dynamic.

This course is centered around a common case study which builds throughout the course.

For people in the Department of Defense (DoD) environment, special material can be added for compliance to the Defense Information Infrastructure (DII) Common Operating Environment (COE).

Integration and Interoperability Testing will help you become more comfortable and confident in testing software applications that are complex and interrelated. You will emerge from this three-day session knowing how to plan and conduct tests in diverse environments. You will also leave with knowledge of how tools can help you perform integration and interoperability testing.


Who Will Benefit

The program requires basic testing knowledge or experience.
