Whether you are deploying FIX or proprietary protocol components within trading systems, thorough testing is crucial to success. Not only do you need to test your systems for execution venue driven events but also for managing the client flow. Manual testing is a costly and error-prone process that can be significantly improved and accelerated through automated testing. Automated regression testing is the absolute minimum in these rapidly changing environments.
Many of our customers leverage VeriFIX by Itiviti to do so. In March 2017 we asked TechValidate, an independent third-party research firm, to survey those customers to learn more about their challenges and how they use VeriFIX to overcome them. As it turns out, the ability to automate test cases is the most appreciated feature. This is also an indication of the future of testing, where automation plays an increasingly important role.
