Importance of Automation Testing

Companies not only want to test software adequately, but also as quickly and thoroughly as possible. To accomplish this goal, organizations are turning to automated testing.

To increase the test coverage

Reduces the need for manual testing and discovers defects manual testing cannot expose and also manual testing is error prone and a time consuming process.

Running the tests again and again gives us the confidence that the new work we added to the system did not break the code that used to work and also to make sure that the changes we introduced are working.

Why Automation Testing is required?

Automated software testing is the best way to increase the effectiveness, efficiency and coverage of your software testing. Every software development group tests its products, yet delivered software always has defects.

Test engineers strive to catch them before the product is released but they always creep in and they often reappear, even with the best manual testing processes.
