What is Automation Testing?

Automation Testing Content

Automation Testing or Test Automation is a software testing technique that performs special automated testing software tools to execute a test case suite. On the contrary, Manual Testing is performed by a human sitting in front of a computer carefully running the test steps. The automation testing software can also enter test data into the System Under Test, compare expected and actual results, and generate detailed test reports. Software Test Automation demands considerable investments of money and resources.

Successive development cycles will require the execution of the same test suite repeatedly. In the test automation, we can record the test suite and re-play it as needed. Once the test suite is automated, no human intervention is required. Test Automation aims to reduce the number of test cases to run manually and not eliminate Manual Testing.

Softlinn is a software testing company, to dig deeper, we are a reliable automation testing company with experienced team in New York and Florida.

Why Test Automation?

Test Automation is the best way to increase the effectiveness, test coverage, and execution speed in software testing. Automated software testing is essential due to the following reasons:

  • Manual Testing of all workflows, all fields, all negative scenarios is time and money consuming.
  • Test Automation in software testing does not require human intervention.
  • Test Automation increases the speed of test execution.
  • Automation helps increase Test Coverage.
  • Manual Testing can become tedious and hence error-prone.

Pros of Automation Testing

  • It can run test plans to be tested on different platforms more easily than manual tests.
  • It reduces the time and cost of testing all workflows, all areas, all adverse scenarios.
  • Tests that require multiple users such as load, performance, and stress can be easily performed.
  • Provides convenience in regression tests with frequent changes.
  • Reusable.
  • Does not require human intervention, thus minimizing human errors
  • Helps increase test coverage.
  • Provides enhanced error detection. Detects more errors sooner
  • Provides better reporting.
  • Tests can be run 7×24.


Which Test Cases Should We Automate?

  • High risk, potentially critical to the project
  • Repeatedly executed
  • It may be difficult to perform manually.
  • It may take time
