In today´s fast moving world, it is a challenge for any company to continuously maintain and improve the quality of software systems development. Test automation is the best way to generate better quality and reduce costs. You can also decrease testing time and minimize the risk of human error.
The automation tools we work with can handle (among other things) functional, regression, GUI and data-driven testing. They also support most languages and can be run on a variety of platforms.
With the help of unit testing you get all the advantages of test-driven software development, such as traceability between requirement artefacts and test artefacts. The agile and iterative method is particularly effective because the test case and the testing are very strongly linked to the requirement specification.
Test automation is initially associated with increased effort, but the related benefits will quickly pay off.
“We developed and implemented a test automation framework solution for a company in the process and packaging industry. Today this framework replaces up to 80% of existing test cases.”
