Our solution "Keep IT Green" for test automation is based on the non-invasive approach of eggplant and offers the users in practice the basis for maximum efficiency and fast productivity in their concrete TA projects.

With eggplant as technology supplier, specifically extended to include QA methods in workplace and workflow test management, with "Keep IT Green" we deliver a TA suite that can be used immediately and productively, including ready-to-use function libraries.

Unlike conventional test systems, "Keep IT Green" was developed for cross-system workflows and delivers sustainable test automation in Evergreen IT (IT workplace management

The KIG suite offers you investment security as an optimal solution for long-term benefit in your automation projects (test & process).

Out-of-the-box product solution (e.g. for workplace)

Enhanced Eggplant Programming (methodologically unique)

"TA Studio" provides a simple, intuitive management and control interface for all test and RPA projects. "TA Studio" centralizes all your functional tests across different application and device levels. Via its intuitive interface, E2E tests can be performed and controlled across technologies and devices in a very short time.

Using the "Enhanced Eggplant Programming" (EEP) method integrated in "TA Studio", we were able to implement a globally unique maintenance approach for test scripts: the method-based EEP approach allows users - in contrast to conventional test tools - to significantly reduce the maintenance effort for initially created test scripts.

If requirements for the test scripts or the business processes change, the affected tests can often be synchronized by simply adjusting parameters, i.e. changing the test scripts is only rarely necessary, if at all, because the parameters are stored in a database and can be easily administered via the "TA Studio" administration interface. Adjustments are therefore easy to implement without having to resort to specific IT or developer know-how.

Thanks to the non-invasive approach of basic eggplant technology, we can offer our customers  real  "Test Automation-as-a-Service" architecture without any problems. All we need is remote access (VNC, RDP) to the GUI of the test objects. No SW installations. No external consultant teams at the customer´s site.

Real means: customers submit their test requirements and get back the finished results for the defined test objects. They determine the frequency of execution.

Real means: the customer determines where our test laboratory is located - whether in the customer cloud, on-premise or in our cloud. Everything is easy to implement.

Use existing, pre-assembled industry and sector solutions

For IT workplace management, we offer ready-made, context-specific product solutions (pre-assembled evergreen test sets for MS-Windows and mobile devices). These can be used "out-of-the-box", but can also be easily adapted to company requirements. Further industry testsets are under development.

In addition, we offer individual, fully automated mapping of stereotypical and regular, GUI-based business transactions as an RPA solution.

Architectural model

TA Studio (as administration and control unit) represents the central coordination instance between the eggplant-based development platform (incl. EEP libraries) and the administrative test activities, thus allowing both the parameter-supported configuration of the TA scripts and the variable handling of the execution procedures.

The entire KIG suite (with TA Studio as GUI, KIG repository as RDBMS) thus provides a methodologically unique and highly efficient procedure in the TA development and test laboratory. Existing test scripts of common procedures can be integrated.
