Project overview

The customer is an influential player in the telecom market that unites hundreds of operators into an extensive mobile ecosystem.

The tested product is a secure universal authentication platform allowing mobile operators to develop apps and log in via the solution while end users choose it to authenticate to websites and apps easily from multiple devices. The resource consists of several modules and a set of SDKs for integration into third-party apps.

Significant increase in platform users urged the customer to optimize testing processes and speed up time to market through test automation and best DevOps practices.

To boost testing efficiency and scale down the human error rate, the engineers eased the environment configuration process using Docker containers.
