Abstract—Today’s business climate requires to constantly evolve IT strategies for responding to new opportunities or threats. While the fundamentals of IT — reliability, availability, security and manageability — are still crucial, rapid results are mandatory for business success. These business challenges can be solved by acting with agility – striking the proper balance between the introduction of leading-edge technology and the pragmatic application of IT. In this paper, we introduce a testing framework for business solutions dealing with complex and dynamic IT environments. Our framework enables a test-driven development and adaptation of business processes in order to implement flexible and reliable business solutions. We compare our testing framework with model-driven development approaches and show how we applied it to an event-driven process management platform called SARI (Sense And Respond Infrastructure).
