Minimising the risk with quality tests
Automated tests are an excellent way to collaborate with manual testing
They’re able to perform repeatable and difficult test cases that can be difficult for manual testers. This way we can, for example, produce thousands of requests to find out if the system is prepared for many users it will have to handle every day. We also avoid making mistakes in test results and thus save time and money, performing regression tests.
Benefits of automated tests
When it comes to API it is better to eliminate errors writing an automated script that will test it correctly.
Graphical user interface testing is done to determine if all the requirements from project documentation are met.
Finding out if an app or a website can handle an enormous amount of users by sending many requests at the same time.
Adding testing process on every step of development to find out if the product meets business requirements.
When to apply automated testing?
When we can afford them
It is a great way to complement manual testing process and get full QA reports.
For thorough testing
Some tests simply can’t be done by people because they need more computing power.
When time is important
Automated tests take less time so they are perfect when we want to update a product quickly.
