Find out how Arlo reduced testing costs for their Oracle Cloud application by 80%

Learn how they now complete their test cycle in just two days, how upgrades are now fully tested and bugs are caught early before go-live.

Arlo is a global technology giant in wireless surveillance cameras, doorbells & smart lighting. Like many companies using Oracle Cloud Solutions, they were challenged by quarterly updates taking up time and resources.

The Challenge

The amount of time and resources it took to manage the quarterly updates from Oracle.

A short window in order for them to fully test the upgrades before they go live.

It’s difficult to get the business user’s time each quarter to manage the updates for the Oracle HCM Cloud Solution.

Ensure the Oracle systems remain live and performant.

Testing across multiple markets in a short time.

Oracle provides quarterly updates to its customers, requiring mandatory testing before moving to production. The testing window is short, creating the need for an automated solution. Arlo were challenged by quarterly updates taking up valuable time and resources.

The Solution

Winfo’s Automated Testing Solution, WinfoTest, helped provide a pre-loaded Test Script Library, that integrated with SharePoint.


The test data was prepared one time for all the test scripts, saving Arlo from repetitive set up each quarterly upgrade.

An easy-to-understand report was produced and easily shared to the IT and business teams for sign off ahead of go-live with a click of a button.

  • Employee Self-service
