Business Process Testing, or BPT, is a testing method that focuses on validating an end-to-end business process.
The focus of BPT is to test an entire process, end-to-end, rather than just a small element of it. By its nature, it is more likely to be cross-functional, and across multiple applications and systems.
Examples of business processes:
End-to-end testing of business processes ensures that business applications work effectively, with no defects or impacts on other systems.
BPT doesn’t exclusively focus on one application or functionality. Instead, it focuses on the business processes that support the company and its goals. It is a complex task and requires end-to-end system testing, especially on integration and how change can impact and affect each system.
BPT is crucial in ensuring processes are fit for purpose, delivering on company strategy and that all systems are functioning correctly to support it.
Business Process Testing must focus on the interrelationship of different applications and systems – how they interact and manage data between them.
Any change in one system may have an impact on another, potentially affecting or breaking functionality.
Regression testing allows you to test what effects these changes make across different systems. This ensures that unexpected issues are picked up before they get released to the production environment.
Business Process Testing (BPT) helps improve vital business processes, saving costs and mitigating the risk of change across multiple applications.
However, the challenges and time involved in BPT mean that organizations may only use it for their core business processes, ones that drive significant business value.
Selecting the right end-to-end testing tools is also important, which can help capture business processes, automate regression testing without coding, and empower business users to test and feedback in the BPT process.
