Automating the Testing of Software Leads to Better Results

Leveraging AI and automation to test software improves reliability and resilience

In today’s fast-paced digital economy, every application that enters the market needs to go through rigorous testing to ensure it delivers in the real world.  With over 500 million apps predicted to be built by 2040, the need for test automation is greater than ever before.  Up until recently, manual testing was the preferred methodology for system testing, integration testing, regression testing, explorative testing, graphical user interface testing, and robotic process automation testing.  However, manual testing poses several challenges, including cost, human error, and limited scalability.  Automated testing provides a much more stable and efficient testing process, allowing for complex testing without worrying about human error and scalability.  

With automated testing, the overall efficiency of the testing phase improves, and much quicker turnaround times can be achieved.  Automated testing proactively manages quality to prevent production disruptions and provides full requirements traceability and visual logging, enabling test teams to rapidly triage any defects.  Additionally, test automation seamlessly connects to the application lifecycle management (ALM) toolchain and can integrate with tools like ServiceNow, SAP Solution Manager, Azure DevOps, and more.  Leveraging test robots, organizations can build a team of dedicated bots to run tests and perform common tasks.  Test automation often offers a low-code interface, synthetic test data generation, and hundreds of prebuilt activities, making it an excellent option for testing RPA workflows, web apps, mobile apps, SAP, Citrix, or other applications.

Getting help with Test Automation can be challenging

Test automation has become an essential part of the software development process.  However, setting up test automation can be challenging for any company.  One of the biggest challenges is finding the right help.  Many companies struggle to find experts with the right skills and experience to set up test automation successfully.  Another challenge is the complexity of the process.  Test automation involves the use of advanced technologies and requires a deep understanding of software development principles and best practices.  Setting up test automation involves developing test cases, identifying testing scenarios, and choosing the right tools and frameworks to use.  This can be a daunting task for companies that don’t have the right expertise in-house.  Cost is also a challenge.  Setting up test automation can be expensive, particularly for small and mid-sized companies.  Investing in the right tools, frameworks, and infrastructure can be costly, and hiring experts to set up and manage test automation can add to the expense. 

Integration is another challenge.  Test automation requires integration with other software development tools, such as continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) tools, defect tracking tools, and test management tools.  Integrating all this can be complex and time-consuming, requiring a deep understanding of the software development lifecycle.  On top of this there is the challenge of maintenance.  Test automation requires regular maintenance to ensure that it remains effective and efficient.  Test cases need to be updated regularly to reflect changes in the software, and the testing framework needs to be updated to stay current with the latest technologies and best practices.

Use-Cases for Test Automation


Regression Testing

Automation is better because of frequent code changes. It allows testing in real-time.

Load Testing

This type of testing ensures the verification of a system working under peak and normal conditions. It is also better to use automated testing tools in these cases.

Performance Testing

This testing type evaluates the applications scalability, speed, and stability characteristics. It can be done more efficiently with automation.

Repeated Execution

This type of test considers the repetition of tasks, and it is better to run automated tests in these cases.

Challenges with Testing Automation


Finding the right framework and tool

Finding the right automation tool is a very crucial challenge in automation testing for the success of automation. There are a lot of tools available, both licensed as well as open-source, which makes it difficult to choose. The choice of tool depends upon the kind of application and the extent of automation testing

Effective communication and team collaboration

Lack of communication and collaboration among the team is one of the key challenges in automation testing. Since automation testing requires significant investment and gives long-term ROI (Return On Investment) instead of instant gratification, its success is very much dependent on effective communication among all stakeholders.

Identifying the Test Automation strategy

Without a proper test automation strategy, the efficiency of technology will be lost. This is like a body without a brain. Choosing the right strategy is another key challenge in automation testing that is instrumental in the success of automation and in showing business values.
extract data

Challenges with Data Reliance

One of the most challenging aspects of test automation is data management. When the test script is executed, the data must be in a specific state; otherwise, it can cause serious issues in several scenarios

Valenta Has Flexible Options for Test Automation Strategy and Implementation

Our approach
Valenta believes in designing, modernizing, and building mission Critical technology systems which most clients depend on every day. We are a focused, independent company, implementing Valenta’s Business-Unit Prototype, we make sure that strategic requirements are covered, and that the solution is built from end-to-end from a chosen business function.

Here are three options we offer to get started with Test Automation implementations.
