Oracle is delighted to announce the availability of exclusive content within Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator for the Oracle Utilities Reference Model. This means that the Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator has flow packs available representing the processes implemented by the Oracle Utilities Reference Model.
The Oracle Utilities Reference Model was originally released as documentation a few years ago and represents generic common practices for business processes, typically experienced by a range of utilities across the world. The models are maintained by a specialist team within the Oracle Utilities development organization and were popular with partners and customers alike keen not only to implement Oracle Utilities products but benefit from these pre-built business models.
Since the inception of the models, it has been a goal to make them more usable and more relevant to a wider Oracle Utilities customer audience. Inspired by the flow and component pack experiences with Oracle Application Testing Suite, which realized significant cost and risk savings, there was a strategy to express the models in the Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator as an exclusive content pack.
With the inclusion of the Oracle Utilities Reference Model content, Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator customers not only have access to pre-built product components but now have access to flows representing best practices for using Oracle Utilities products. The flows are designed using the features of the latest release of the Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator with flow fragments and complete flows, so that customers can get to testing quicker and with lower risk and costs.
The release of the Oracle Utilities Reference Model content not only includes the test assets but comprehensive documentation on how to best use those assets to test more effectively.
Customers who licensed the Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator are also licensed to use this Oracle Utilities Reference Model pack with the relevant product packs and can down the pack and related information from Oracle's documentation site and Patch 30427094 for updates to the Testing API from My Oracle Support.
