Crash Course: NetSuite Testing

Best practices and time-saving tips 

August 11, 2 PM EDT

Testing critical processes is vital to ensuring that they are operating smoothly and consistently. The challenge for NetSuite teams is to manage the demands of testing with the demands of business — and that requires both advanced preparation and, where possible, automation. 

On August 11th, we’re hosting a crash course on NetSuite testing led by Strongpoint CTO Nicolas Cano. Ideal for developers, admins, analysts and executives, this hour-long presentation will provide a comprehensive overview of the approaches and tools we use in our own company to manage testing. We will cover:

  • Different types of testing used by NetSuite teams
  • What NetSuite testing tools are available?
  • How and when to test in different environments
  • Using Strongpoint to automate aspects of NetSuite testing
  • Limits to automation
  • Testing scheduled and map/reduce scripts
  • Best practices for building a test script library

Critically, Strongpoint shows you which customizations will be affected if you make a change — greatly reducing the number of test cases that need to be run but also ensuring that you understand what may need to be tested. We also offer a suite of environment comparison and change management tools that validate deployments and automatically check that your team followed best practices in making each change.
