Why is it critical to perform Automated Testing
for the websites?
The consumer scenario is changing and even the
risks are piling up due to the challenges laid by
Digital Transformation. Additionally, the risks
around cyberattacks are going up, resulting in
anxiety around performance, functionality, and
accessibility of websites during business
critical scenarios. Hence, this has led to a lot
of focus on testing websites across various
parameters, and beyond just security. The focus
has also been on continuous testing, which is
impossible without leveraging automation
frameworks and automated testing
formats. Testing of websites has multiple
reasons and trigger points, which are impossible
to meet if automation is not adopted. Even with
scrupulous software development by experienced
groups, the software tends to get delivered with
defects. Bugs and glitches tend to creep into the
system and create issues while the application is
running LIVE on desktops and portable dimensions.
Test Automation enables you to boost the
effectiveness, efficiency, and maximize the test
coverage for the application. Automated Testing
tools enable you to playback pre-recorded and
predefined actions and eventually compare the
results with the expected behaviour. It also
helps to report back the actions and track the
testing process. These features are impossible to
achieve without implementing automation and the
tools. Thats the reason automated software
testing is critical for the software development
cycle and application development. It not only
accelerates the software testing process, but
also makes it more efficient, traceable, and
result-oriented. It is not only critical for big
software development organizations, but also for
smaller set-ups. However, in case you are
leveraging licensed tools, the process gets very
expensive. Thats the reason experts recommend
that test automation should be

planned strategically, making it more
objective-oriented. A piece in DevOps Online
states, Intelligent test automation heralds the
third wave in the test automation or DevOps
journey, with its pre-emptive, prescriptive and
predictive approach to quality. Simply put,
intelligent testing uses AI and ML to address the
pain points that organisations face, by
introducing data-driven insights, predictions and
recommendations. While implementing automation
for websites, it is important to set the scope
right. Executing automation for specific tasks
can be impactful and logical, rather than just
applying across the site. This will also help
teams to keep a control over the testing and
automation process, and make it more enhancing
for the overall software testing cycle. Most
importantly, it makes testing more traceable and
effective for teams even in the longer run. It
is critical to understand whether your web
application needs automation across various
features or only for a select sections. Making
these decisions is absolutely essential to enable
a process that gives results and doesnt just get
executed blindly through the testing cycle. It
can be chaotic if automation is executed without
a particular plan. Setting tangible objectives is
absolutely essential and makes total sense to
achieve what is needed. A research by Gartner
calls for those responsible for application
development strategies in digital business
initiatives to ensure that quality is a team
focus by making use of communities of practice or
guilds to discover, share and evolve best
practices. Gartner believes that shifting the
focus of QA from quality assurance to quality
assistance is the way ahead.

The industry trend show a focus on more quality
assistance, which will result in quality
assurance. Automation of tests is expected to
offer that extra edge and support for testing
teams over manual testing, which enables maximum
test coverage, shorter test cycles, repetition of
tests with minimal errors, and with high
accuracy. Referring to achieving maximum test
coverage, automated software testing can improve
the scope of tests. This will help to improve the
software quality and enable teams to avoid the
lengthy manual tests. Additionally, these tests
can run across multiple computers even with
different configurations. It also helps to look
within an application for memory contents, data
tables, and file contents enabling you to
evaluate the behaviour of the application and
understand whether it is in sync with your
expectations. Test Automation can also execute
multiple tests at a time, enhancing the test
coverage that is impossible to achieve with
manual testing. According to a research report
by Everest Group, The QA landscape has been
evolving over the past decade and there is a
clear shift from independent testing of
applications to a more holistic brand assurance
of business processes and outcomes. Even as
enterprises adopt Agile and DevOps and continue
their journey of integrated testing, service
providers are strengthening their capabilities to
deliver end-to-end QA orchestration to their
clients. Providers are also investing in
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning
(ML) to expand their test automation suite of
tools and IP, and even include performance and
security testing into the continuous delivery
model, thus enabling brand assurance for their
clients business. Read Full Blog at
