The BDD framework closes those communication gaps.
Cucumber translates plain text into code, but you still need the code to execute your test cases. That's where Selenium and other automation tools comes in.
Now, as we build several Pega applications, we can simply point them to the same cloud-based microservices so all the data is in sync. This was the motivation to move to microservices. Live documentation is a major bonus. If you want to see how your application behaves - or the capabilities of your application, you can go to the test cases and see all the behavior.
Cucumber provides a live, continuous documentation.

The first question customers always ask is "How does this work? We tested the QA process in the specialty pharmacy division as we are the subject matter experts and felt most comfortable there. Once we proved how well Cucumber worked, the customer decided to roll out the QA process across all lines of business as part of their digital transformation. Instead of patient information all scattered around all these monolithic applications, we have them in one single place.
We knew that agile teams using a BDD framework were faster, more collaborative and yielded better results. We read a lot of Cucumber books and online documentation that helped us learn about the practices on what we should be doing and what we should be targeting. I trained a team of six people at our offices in Mexico, who were tasked with training larger groups. We started off with two projects to migrate monolithic legacy databases to new microservices.
It would normally be difficult to gather all the data and business logic from the legacy systems, but because we had prior experience working with those systems, it made it easier for us to understand. This is where our experience in healthcare operations stands out.
My team built a Cucumber core, which is a Java library with reusable code that contains the core domain logic to execute Cucumber features. We created this library because we are running many tests.

Instead of writing the code repeatedly for each microservice, we created the library and published it on a repository within the PBM so that anyone can use it in practice. Other teams are using this same library for testing microservices. For any microservices now in the PBM, all you must do is pull that dependency and you can start writing your Gherkin scripts without needing to write any code at all. It does save a lot of time. I have been approached by several teams who ask me if they can use it and how to use it and some of them are contributing to the code like adding new functionalities.
