Test Automation | By Timothy Joseph | April 23, 2019

Test automation will save you time and money. That is why it was developed, and that is why you want to use it. To access all the speed and efficiencies of automation testing, you need to have the right foundation in place.

That foundation is your test automation framework. To put it plainly, the test automation framework is a set of rules, guidelines, standards, and conventions governing the testing process. In a manner of speaking, your test automation framework is the race track upon which your lightning-fast test automation race car can run.

Humans make mistakes – it’s a natural phenomenon. However, errors can be costly for highly complex and stringent operations often seen in the legal domain.

Which Testing is Best: Manual or Automation?

Test Automation, Manual Testing | By Timothy Joseph | January 15, 2019

The sporting world has long struggled with deciding the significance of the “V” in its MVP awards. The use of the word “valuable” clouds the thinking on whether voters are searching for the player most valuable to the team and its success, or the flat-out best player that year.

We face a similar problem when comparing manual and automation testing in the QA process. Each approach has its pros and cons, but ultimately it is hard to declare one as universally superior. The most effective way to decide between them is to consider how often each has the advantage over the other. Automation gives you greater coverage, API integration, and speed. Manual testing, on the other hand, gives you greater human input, and an accompanying eye for detail and solutions.

What are the Benefits of Automated API Test Integration?

“I want it all, and I want it now.”

Isn’t that the sentiment you most want to express when you assess your release cycle? After all, you’re just craving quality and speed. One of the biggest benefits of automated API test integration is that you get a quality product quickly. It also lets you stay focused on meeting your own standards for quality, functionality, reliability, performance, and security.

Just how quickly you’ll see those benefits depends on choosing the right partner. But the speed advantage means faster bug fixes and faster time to market for your product. Let’s look at some of the other ways it can help keep your product on schedule and within budget.
