Next To Come: Insights into the Botium Box Backlog

What we are currently working on:

  • Tracking users and record changes in Botium Box so you always know what user wrote the awesome test scripts
  • Increased test failure traceability by storing and comparing snapshots of the underlying conversation model on each test run
  • Live Chatbot monitoring and analytics
  • Testing-As-A-Service - hire the Botium exports for doing the chatbot testing for you\, so you do not loose time building expertise in-house
  • NLP-Analytics-As-A-Service - send us your data and we will do the NLP analytics for you\, so you know what chatbot engine performs best with your data
  • Botium Academy - educating the chatbot testing experts of tomorrow

Roadmap: Botium Box Future

We are working on Botium Box v3. There won’t be a “big bang”, but in the next 3–6 months we will constantly improve Botium Box v2, amongst others with:

  • Enterprise Single-Sign-On with SSAML
  • Enhanced IVR testing on all local landlines
  • Voice testing in all languages with accents and dialects
  • End-2-End-Testing on real hardware devices
  • Additional test types (fuzz testing, IVR testing, ...)
  • Enhanced clustering and load balancing for high-profile-test-automation

For the next 1–2 years, we are constantly adding ideas to our roadmap from one of the following topics:

  • Automating the test automation — generate test cases from existing test cases by using linguistic algorithms, word synonym lists, markov chains and more
  • Add integrations and support for newcomers and established chatbot technologies
  • Cooperation with universities (TU Wien)
