What is Automation?
Automation is the technology by which a process or strategy is performed without human help. Test automation is the use of programs apart from the product under test to control the test execution and the correlation of genuine results with expected results. Test automation can automate some tedious yet important tasks in a formalized testing process that is already set up or any extra testing that would be hard to do physically. Test automation is critical for constant delivery and continuous testing.
Some popular automation software is Telerik Test Studio, Robotium, TestComplete, Watir, Visual Studio Test Professional, QTP (UFT), and SoapUI.
Why opt for Test Automation with Trugo?
The necessity for micro, small, and medium companies to automate their testing processes is constantly increasing. This is more vital while focusing on growing their online services and e-commerce operations. An increase in overall software efficiency and robust software quality can be achieved through test automation.
It is commonly known that a tester is not supposed to just perform testing. That’s why at Trugo, we ensure that our test automation engineers understand the data collected during testing, and know how to analyze it based on the particular behavior of the application or product. In a situation where a bug is found, our developers make sure that an analysis of the test environment, the test data, and the interruptions are done to find the root cause of the problem.
Benefits of Automated Testing
Faster Feedback Cycle
Feedback for recently created features can be time-consuming without test automation. Test automation helps reduce the feedback cycle and acquire quicker validation for phases in the development of the product. Test automation is particularly important since it recognizes the issues or bugs early during the development phase, which increases the team’s effectiveness.
Team Saves Time
By automating the testing procedure, the team has to invest less time validating recently created features. It additionally improves correspondence with other departments like design, marketing, or product owners who depend on the outcome of these tests. These departments can easily check the logs of the automated tests and check the updates.
Higher Test Coverage
Manual testing sets boundaries for the number of tests that can be checked. Automation permits investing time in writing new tests and adding them to the automated test suite. This builds the test inclusion for the product so that more features are appropriately tested bringing about a better application. Likewise, automated testing permits developers to write more in-depth tests that test complex use cases. Lengthy tests that are often avoided during manual testing can be run unattended. Faster Time to Market Newly developed features can be consistently tested and approved with test automation. This decreases the testing and feedback cycle and allows companies to bring their products to the market quicker.
Automated testing gives better insights than manual testing when some tests fail. Automated software testing not only gives insights into the application but also shows the data tables, file contents, memory contents, and other internal program states. This enables developers to figure out what was incorrect.
