Testing software is valued by organizations that believe in timely delivery of quality software to stay competitive. This white paper explores the current state of end-to-end system test automation, upcoming trends, and how organizations can be empowered to achieve their quality goals with reduced test cycles and agility. It also does gap analysis and proposes Cyient’s AI-powered end-toend system test automation solution to bridge the gap.
High-quality, reliable testing of software requires longer test cycles, skilled test engineers, time, effort, and money. If a test approach is incorrectly chosen, a small change in software or in software configuration may have a ripple effect on test efforts which may cost an organization dearly.
Managing testing of software that is meant to run in a distributed environment and on multiple platforms is complicated. It is not just test execution but test creation too that requires significant effort by SMEs and needs continuous effort to manage every change and update to the software.
The most sustainable way to efficiently deal with these challenges is to embrace an efficient, reliable, easy-to-use test automation solution that predicts, auto generates, and simulates business use cases with minimal or zero human intervention. The first step in this direction is identifying and choosing the right test automation framework, approach, and process for end-to-end system test automation. With rising demand to execute longer duration tests multiple times for multiple host environments for systems like Web applications, Windows applications, mobile applications, IoT, and embedded devices, the test automation framework has to be executable on heterogeneous platforms, reusable, and scalable. To achieve the same we need to understand the current state of test automation.
Automation testing has multiple advantages that make it the top testing method for numerous scenarios. Adequate implementation of automation testing requires the right choice of testing tool and a professional team to exercise it. When choosing an automated testing tool, you should look for one that is flexible and can support a wide range of applications and languages. Cyient’s FAST allows QA teams to create and run the E2E System and functional tests across Web, mobile, desktop, and embedded application and hardware devices, providing a comprehensive environment for building and maintaining automated testing projects.
Cyient’s FAST is aligned with identified megatrends and is a key support to technology-driven disrupters specifically for automation.
