Artificial Intelligence And Robotic Process Automation: What You Need To Know

Automation is a testing technique that follows predefined rules. Artificial Intelligence is designed to simulate human behavior, intelligence and thinking. Now, what would happen if software engineers blend automation with artificial intelligence? Robotic process automation would come into play. What exactly is robotic process automation (RPA)?

Our expert AI and test automation engineers have put together all you need to know about RPA in order to achieve maximum ROI.

8 Reasons Your QA Team Would Use a Virtual Machine for Automated Testing

QA team, Test Automation | By Amanda Sturdevant | August 28, 2019

Automated testing is adapting to the ever-evolving trends in the software industry. The traditional  approach of having separate hardware and software for running automation suites, for example, is being replaced with a comprehensive test infrastructure on virtual machines. This evolution resolves one of the major challenges of setting up test infrastructure, and allows your team to focus on testing practices rather than spending precious time preparing and maintaining a test environment.

AI Testing Tools That Drive Automation

Test Automation, AI testing | By Timothy Joseph | August 20, 2019

The greatest asset an expert QA tester possesses is their experience. Years of familiarity with specific domains gives them the ability to predict problems before they arise and implement solutions inexperienced minds would not pursue.

Artificial intelligence can capture that experience and learn from it. AI testing tools of the future will act with the experience of not just one individual but an entire team of expert QA testers.

Reliable Automated Solutions for POS Testing

There was a time when we lined up on a Friday to draw enough cash from over the bank counter to see us through until Monday. Now it is quite possible to go entire weeks without using cash at all.

The digital transformation of business has raised consumer expectations such that they expect to be able to pay for everything—from pizzas to plane tickets—without having to open their wallets. The demand for truly secure, effortless, seamless, faultless digital transactions puts pressure on developers to produce perfect POS software.

8 Ways to Optimize Your Automation Test Coverage

There is a better way to test.

Every step of your software testing process contains hidden efficiencies that can help you achieve even better results, faster. Some are the result of planning, some stem from test design and some you realize through better test execution.

All improvements come with experience. When you have automated more than a million test cases, you learn what works and what does not. More than that, you learn what works best.

QASource's Top Manual Testing Posts

There’s no denying that automation and automated testing is winning the day. For teams using the Agile method, automation is the only way that repetitive testing can keep up with the pace of the team. It’s faster, more cost-effective, and less prone to human error, and it’s essential to running a large quantity of tests across a variety of different platforms in little time.

All that being said, there’s still a major case to be made for manual testing. Manual testing is really the only tried-and-true way to test for the end user, and it’s still worthwhile for any product company designing and delivering to humans.

Tips for Creating the Best Automated Test Scripts

Great automated test scripts go unnoticed. They hum away in the background of your development cycle free from intervention, silently churning hours of would-be human engineer time and resources into efficient, quantifiable, reliable, predictable results.

Successful software development projects that embrace the advantages of Agile methodologies rely on careful planning and execution. The cycle of coding, testing and refining a product through repeated iterations works only if the underlying automated test scripts keep producing results without drama.
