Can Software Testing be Automated?
A software development cycle is an organized structure with various phases such as requirement gathering, design, implementation, and testing among others. The process can be lengthy, requiring the allotment of long durations of time as well as plenty of resources. This is especially evident in the software testing phase which verifies if the raw version of the software matches original requirements and if it serves the intended purpose. Yet the length and additional investment required for this phase may not make sense from a commercial perspective. SGS Technologie presents a solution for this in the form of automated software testing services.
How does Automated Software testing Work?
Automation software testing refers to executing software programs that carry out the execution of test cases automatically and produce the test results without any human intervention. Automation software can also enter test data into the system under test, compare results with expectations and generate detailed test reports.
SGS Technologies uses automated testing tools to playback recorded and predefined actions, compare the results with the expected behavior and report the success or failure of these manual tests to a test engineer. This automated software testing completes work that would normally require long periods of time as well as the consideration of several team members. Moreover, our automation of software testing ensures 100% accuracy. This procedure can also be used to test the application from load, performance and stress point of view.
Benefits of Automated Software Testing:
- Increases productivity
- Saves money
- Increases software quality
- Reduces testing time
- Support various applications
- Increases testing coverage
- Reduces of repetitive work
- Provides greater consistency
Our Types of Automation Testing
Functional Testing consists of testing the interface between the application on one side and the rest of the system and users on the other side. That is, this type of testing evaluates how the end users will react to a software application. SGS Technologie identifies optimal functional areas for automation, then creates automated test scripts that are easy to maintain and can be run repeatedly. We use the advanced software life cycle tools, processes and technologies to increase the speed of application development as well as delivery.
Performance Testing is the process of evaluating the application performance which is being a critical requirement of every application now days. SGS Technologie utilizes various tools for evaluating performance of applications. There are different divisions under performance testing based on the nature of testing.
Load and Stress is conducted at SGS Technologie performed to ensure that an application can withstand the maximum load expected. We test an application with the specified load without overloading the application. Through stress testing, SGS Technologie determines the maximum load an application can accommodate. The application will be tested with more load than the specified limit in order to find out the break point.
