- Codeless, resilient automated tests that separates the technical information of an application with the automation model, allowing automation rates of 90% or more
- Risk-based approach to testing that reduces risk in software releases while cutting the overall number of tests in the automation suite
- Automatically create and provision on-demand stateful data for even the most complex scenarios
What is test automation?
Test automation is focused on automating the validation of applications and services against requirements. Test automation solutions include tools for unit, API/service, and user interface functional testing, as well as load and performance testing.
Why is test automation important to continuous testing?
Continuous testing – the practice of testing software throughout the software delivery pipeline rather than at the end of the process – is an essential component of Agile and DevOps software development. Test automation is essential for continuous testing, but it’s not sufficient. Test automation is designed to produce a set of pass/fail data points correlated to user stories or application requirements. Continuous testing, on the other hand, focuses on business risk and providing insight on whether the software can be released. Beyond test automation, continuous testing also involves practices such as aligning testing with your business risk, applying service virtualization and stateful test data management to stabilize testing for continuous integration, and performing exploratory testing to expose “big block” issues early in each iteration. It’s not simply a matter of more tools, or different tools. It requires a deeper transformation across people and processes as well as technologies.
