Method and System for Managing Test Execution Data Shared Across Multiple Systems

Disclosed is a method and system for managing test execution data which is required to be shared across multiple systems.

The method involves associating the test execution data to one or more test steps in one or more test cases. The test execution data is processed by multiple systems such as various interlocking teams, applications and resources as it passes through them for the purpose of testing and validation. Each of the multiple systems is required to validate/test a specific data. In order to execute testing/validation, a system is required to be aware about data that needs to be tested/validated. Further, the system also needs to be aware about various changes done to the data by other systems.

As the test execution data passes across multiple systems, information pertaining to processing done to the test execution data by multiple systems is maintained in a historical record. The historical record is associated with the test execution data and is passed along with the test execution data.

Once the test execution data is processed by a system, a next-in-line system that is scheduled to perform testing/validation on the test execution data is alerted with a notification that the test execution data is available for review and execution. Along with the notification, the next-in-line system is also provided with the historical record a...
