To move fast with consumer demands Shell Energy (formerly First Utility) run development in an agile manner so test automation is key. The Shell Energy platform which delivers the main functions to the business such as billing, tariff management, and client management consists of a number of components.
Many are controlled by Shell however there are some which are developed by 3rd parties. Unable to control the development speed of the 3rd parties, Shell Energy looked at other ways in which they would be able to speed up deployments.
Godel were selected as an automated testing partner working on the mission-critical billing system. Keith Sterling, Head of Software Development said:
“Our collaboration with Godel is the ideal strategic partnership; it supports our growth by allowing us to get new developments and products to market faster whilst increasing our software quality. At First Utility we are continually looking at ways in which we can put our customers first and ways in which we can cut costs to keep more money in their pockets,”
