Andolasoft launched service on QA Automation by Jay February 6, 2014 3 Minutes ReadWe are excited to announce launching of QA Automation service at Andolasoft. QA is an important phase of SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle) for releasing quality software. Why QA Automation? While manual testing is appropriate in some cases, it is a time-consuming and tedious process that is inefficient and conflicts with today’s shorter application development cycles. As a result, it impedes the ability to thoroughly test an application. Whereas, Automated testing creates new efficiencies that accelerate the testing cycle and promote software quality. Automated tests are quicker to run than manual tests as there’s no lag time between input and checking, as a result you can run more tests in multiple browsers rapidly. Manual testing has a high risk of missing out of any test case, whereas Automated tests have zero risk of missing out a pre-decided test case. Benefits of Software Automation Testing Saves Time : As automated tests are run by tools, it runs tests significantly faster than human users which adds to the first benefit of saving time. Cost Effective : Software automation tools are expensive for short-term, but you can save money in long-term. With the help of Automation tool, you can easily find bugs in less time. This allows your team to react more quickly, as a result it saves your precious time and money. Consistency: Automated testing offers a level of consistency, which is not achievable through use of manual testing. Repeatable: Testers can test how the software reacts under repeated execution of the same operations. Reusable: Tests can be reused on different versions of an application, even if the user interface changes. Reliable: Tests perform precisely the same operations each time they are run, thereby eliminating human error. Comprehensive: You can build a suite of tests that covers every feature in your application. Programmable: Testers can program sophisticated tests that bring out hidden information from the application. Quality: Automation tools cuts costs and reduces software product time, as well as it help to ensure high level of quality in software projects. Why QA Automation from Andolasoft ?
