Benefits of software test automation

  1. 1. Benefits of software test automation SSooftwftawre taesrt eau ttoemastiton aanud titos fmuncatiotnison and its functions
  2. 2.  In today´s fast moving world, it is a task for any company to continuously sustain and improve the superiority and efficiency of software systems development.  Cost constraints often lead to neglect in testing in many software development agencies.  This leads to a lack of product quality, followed by customer dissatisfaction and ultimately to increased overall quality costs.  Thus software security testing is given utmost importance in today’s scenario. It basically checks whether the application or the product is secured or not.  It checks to see if the application is vulnerable to attacks, if anyone hack the system or login to the application without any authorization.
  3. 3.  There are various methods and ways of security testing and two of them are manual and automated testing.  The process in which software tools execute pre-scripted tests on a software application before it is released into production is called software test automation.  It is when the tester writes scripts and uses another software to test the original software.  This process involves automation of a manual process and is used to re-run the test scenarios that were performed manually, quickly and repeatedly in a short duration of time.
  4. 4.  Software products that have a long maintenance life can use automated tests as they are fast and can be applied frequently.  It is necessary that the product should react quickly to the ever changing software systems when testing is done in a supple environment.  New test cases are generated continuously and can be added to existing automation in parallel to the development of the software itself.  Software test automation has a framework which is a set of assumptions, concepts, and practices that provide support for testing.  Test automation can be made cost-effective in the long term, especially when used repeatedly in regression testing.
  5. 5.  A strategic approach to system testing will get the software to the market faster. A revolution in application testing to bring new, highly automated on-demand testing environment and services is on its way.  Independent Testing Services often constitutes an optimal mix of traditional and next generation solutions to test software, applications and infrastructure for our clients across industry verticals.
  6. 6.  It helps to address your software testing requirements through shape, transform and manage testing offering giving you an unbiased view on quality, while identifying defects that can be decisive for the market success of your software product.  Automated testing tools are capable of executing tests, reporting outcomes and comparing results with earlier test runs.  It saves time, especially when it comes to regression testing as it involves retesting of the application.  Software test automation are speedy, reliable, can be repeated, reused, and most of all, they reduce the cost of the entire system testing on a whole.  In short it helps to save time by reducing the time taken to run tests, utilizing manpower more effectively by applying skills and time where they are needed most and increasing test coverage which thereby reduces the cost of the entire operation.
