WWHAT CAN AUTOMATION DO FOR THE TESTING CYCLE AND WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TEST AUTOMATION ?

  • Reduction in test execution time and costs: Automation of software testing can be done unattended and with lesser time. Since there is no manual labor involved and the tester is required only to simply start the test and analyze the results when the tests are completed. This process reduces the costs, which would otherwise be incurred by labor intensive manual testing, by about 40% and the test cycle time by 20%.​
  • Automate highly repetitive test cases: You may now provide testing coverage for core business processes by automating the repetitive test cases while deriving the benefits of test automation such as improved efficiency, shortened test cycles and increased test coverage.
  • Increased test coverage in each testing cycle: Testing teams can now implement large number of tests against each build of their application and achieve levels of coverage that are impossible with manual testing. This helps the testing teams uncover bugs more quickly as compared to manual testing.
  • Test automation allows teams to test more features per cycle (breadth)
  • Test automation enables teams to test features with more permutations of inputs (depth).
  • The benefits of test automation include reduction of development times with accelerated testing speed and cycles.
  • Automation provides a reusable library of test assets which can be used for quick execution of tests.
  • Automated testing also enables increased quality control of the software product under test and optimization of resources.
  • Automation increases the value of manual testers: As long as there are applications meant for human users, automation will never entirely replace manual testers. However, by using automation, we are freeing the manual testers from repetitive and mundane tests thereby enabling them to use their skills, instincts and knowledge to discover important defects.
