In this paper, our colleagues present an experience in the usage of MIDAS, an integrated framework for Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) testing automation that is available as Software as a Service (SaaS) in a cloud infrastructure, which is the background of simplyTestify.

The use case is a service architecture in the logistics industry that is compliant with the GS1 Logistics Interoperability Model (GS1 LIM).

The paper details activities performed, results achieved, and the evaluation of success factors and key performance indicators (KPIs), as well as other insights: 

  • 25 % of companies would pay for model-based testing (MBT), 
  • GS1 LIM should be certifiable, and 
  • companies identify as a significant barrier how to calculate the MBT return on investment (ROI).
