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.

8 Tips for Creating the Ultimate Test Automation Strategy

Your test automation strategy is the foundation of your final product. The difference between delivering your app’s potential impact to market or having to watch it fail comes down to the rigors of your QA process. A test automation strategy is your plan for executing that process.

It needs to be comprehensive enough to consider every variable of your testing process, from the nature of your workflows through to the section of the right test tools, from the selection of your QA expert to the makeup of your Agile development team.

Improve Your Test Automation ROI

There is a threefold way to improve the value of your QA investment. Stacked one atop the other, these three elements combine to make your software testing faster, better, and more cost effective.

The strategy looks like this:

  1. Taking advantage of test automation saves you time.
  2. Outsourcing that test automation to a QA expert increases your test coverage and improves the quality of your product.
  3. Engaging a QA expert located offshore dramatically reduces your resource cost.

5 Tips for Android Automation Testing to Avoid Slowdowns in Development

To butcher a racing analogy: there is as much time to be saved in avoiding the brakes as there is in flattening the accelerator. Android automation testing itself will save developer-hours on the release cycle, but to really get to market faster, we need to implement the kind of Agile testing environment that prevents delays and slowdowns.

Just like in auto racing, our Android automation testing is about achieving balance between speed and overall performance—or in our industry, between speed and quality.

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.

Save Time With a Workflow Automation Strategy

Test Automation | By Amanda Sturdevant | April 11, 2019

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. Though manual efforts are beneficial and provide insight into the demands, impressions and reactions of human beings, organizations often make mistakes because they are highly dependent on manual procedures. Companies that choose to implement a workflow automation strategy are given the opportunity to resolve these issues and improve their overall workflow process.
