Software products are meant to enhance the efficiency of processes and operations in any organization. But, when these products are released in their unfit state, it can cause frustration and financial losses for the organization.
Automated testing can ensure that all software products are released in optimal condition.
What is automated testing?
Automated testing is a process of executing automated tests to check whether the application or product meets its specified requirements or not.
This type of testing eliminates manual efforts and helps in finding defects quickly. Automated testing also helps to identify potential risks more reliably before the software is released.
And whenever you use industry-leading automation testing services from KMS, you can be assured of quality assurance.
Benefits of Automated Testing
Automation testing provides a wide range of benefits for software developers including:
1. Increased Test Coverage
Automated tests can be used to cover a wide range of scenarios that may not be possible to do manually. Take the example of a web application that has a large number of input fields. Automated tests can be used to quickly and accurately identify defects in the system. Additionally, automated tests can be quickly implemented for new features or changes to existing functionality.
2. Faster feedback cycle
Automated tests can be executed quickly and provide the results within a few minutes. This enables developers to make better decisions regarding software quality and quickly fix the highlighted issues.
The automated testing processes also help in reducing the time taken for development, allowing developers to focus on more important tasks.
3. Improved Accuracy and reliability
Automated testing helps to reduce the chances of human error in the testing process. It also ensures that every test run is identical and no data is skipped or overlooked, as would be possible with manual testing.
This leads to improved accuracy and reliability in the testing process.
4. Higher Efficiency
Automated tests are faster and more accurate than manual tests. You will need shorter test cycles and can benefit from faster identification of benefits in the system.
This can help you eliminate the need for manual testers to spend hours running tests which can save time, money and effort. Additionally, automated tests do not require constant human supervision which further improves efficiency.
5. Elaborate reporting capabilities
Automated testing tools provide a variety of reporting capabilities that can be used to quickly and easily identify defects in the system.
Detailed reports can be generated quickly to allow developers to analyze overall test results, and identify which tests need more attention and what areas need improvement.
6. Higher reusability of test suite
Once an automated test suite has been created, it can be used repeatedly for future tests. This helps to reduce the time and effort needed to create new tests as the same test suite can be reused after minor modifications.
Additionally, automated testing tools provide features such as parameterization that allow data-driven testing which further increases reusability.
7. Easier cross-browser testing
Automation testing tools make it easier to rapidly test an application’s compatibility across multiple browsers and platforms. This helps to reduce the time and effort needed for manual cross-browser testing.
Additionally, automated testing allows you to easily identify issues that are specific to certain browsers and platforms.
To sum it all up,
Automated testing is critical for software development and provides a wide range of benefits for your business.
With KMS automated testing services, you can be sure that your software is built with the highest quality assurance standards.
