Developing new software systems is often an exciting and dynamic undertaking that starts off with carefully written code slowly evolving into a fully functional and operating masterpiece product. In an ideal world, this process is marked with regular test check-points in which developers are able to weed out bugs and mend any foreseeable issues to come – but in the real world, this isn’t quite the case.
In this ever-changing, fast-paced tech landscape we exist in the reality is that it’s almost impossible to keep up with the testing necessary to build a solid and efficient, quality product that’s successfully delivered within a client’s often fixed and very tight deadline. Doing so would most likely require additional costs to the development process and/or a 24 hour a day work ethic that holds strong through the project’s duration.
Here’s where the benefits of test automation kick in; a time-saving, quality control system that allows you to manage the execution of tests and the comparison of actual outcomes with predicted outcomes. Once set up the benefits are almost immediately apparent.
