Typical AD Analysis – How Healthy is your AD?

AD Health Report – Hyperfish

Incomplete and outdated information in AD/AAD as demonstrated in the above report means that:

  • Workflows that don’t go to the correct person or fail – Have you experienced the frustration of chasing up your holiday, expense or travel request?
  • IT overhead costs increase as IT resources manually maintain and update AD/AAD
  • Communication across the organisation is slow and frustrating as people search for new/changed contact details for co-workers
  • Directory and profile information does not conform to organisational standards and policies

In fact it ships with over 60 content packs.

Power BI allows you to create visual representations of data that can be used to setup meaningful reports and dashboards, resulting in consistant analysis across your organisation. Reports and dashboards are not limited to your desktop. You can access them on mobile devices.

Power BI integrates with line of business software and reports can be easily embeded in your apps.

How are you testing your K2 Apps?

Automate Your K2 Testing

Most organisations we speak to on a daily basis are under pressure to:

  • Deliver high quality solutions on time and on budget
  • Manage K2 efficiently
  • Ensure their K2 environment and applications are performing optimally

They don’t have a single solution to automate tests and effectively manage their K2 environments. Money is spent on manual testing, administration and troubleshooting. This increases every year leading to an unnecessary drain on IT costs and resources.

Manual testing and no regression testing is inadequate and can lead to:

  • Inconsistant application delivery
  • Slow, costly application delivery
  • Bug ridden applications
  • Risk of non-compliance if functionality is not correctly maintained
  • No time to react when systems are down

This can lead to a loss of confidence from the business to commission IT to develop more applications.

The key benefits to test automation are:

  • For Users – they appreciate the higher quality of deployments. Less broken applications and roll backs
  • For K2 Administrators – utilising test scripts to monitor the health of all K2 apps and their components to ensure their integrity. Easy monitoring of SmartObjects, their backend services, forms, views and workflow processes. They can troubleshoot and confidently amend process instances to reduce manual rework by users.
  • For Testers - reduced errors by using a consistent set of regression test cases. The ability to compare test case performances through reporting and rapid turnaround with additional test case creation is priceless..
  • For the App lifecycle – changes and updates can be tested to ensure it retains its’ integrity.
  • Developers and App Designers – productivity increases as they can use test cases as a design aid and confirm and validate logic and changes

The benefit to the Organisation is:

  • Saved time and money
  • Reliable apps
  • Reduced downtime
  • Confidence in the IT Department

The ability to script gives you the power to reuse, share and schedule execution. The following can be scripted:

  • Workflows
  • SmartObjects
  • K2 Smartform interactions
  • Reproduced process state across Development/Test/Production Environments
  • Environment clean up
  • Test Scripts
