QA Automation

QA Valley offers full-cycle QA Automation testing services on software products - to software vendors, software product companies, and intensive users of IT systems - executed by an experienced team of software engineers & support staff. Backed by a certified team of Selenium experts and trusted by clients, QA Valley provides a wide range of Selenium automated testing services, such as - Selenium Automated Functional Testing; Selenium Automated Regression Testing, and Selenium Browser Compatibility Testing. QA Valley performs software testing across all application areas and hardware platforms by applying best practices in QA testing and revealing a full spectrum of defects. QA Valley’s body of experience enables them to easily select and code test cases that are more automation applicable, and to focus on configuring automation cycles that can be executed with minimum human intervention.

Software QA Automation Testing is a Quality Assurance technique where the software test cases are coded into executable scripts and are run as automated QA Test Cycles. This automated process eliminates human intervention and enables the execution of QA Cycles using a variety of Software Tools. Automated QA Testing is vital for companies that practice continuous integration - which means that software is developed, tested, and deployed multiple times per day - rather than in stages, as was common in more traditional development models. With the stiff business competition existing today, enterprises need faster releases and quality software to meet the increasing demand of their services and products, and hence embracing Agile & DevOps practices by leveraging automated testing software to achieve faster releases and quality products along with achieving a quicker return on investment.

QA engineers choose and use various Software Tools (both open source & commercial tools) for automated testing, based on the type of requirements for the software being built. In general, the commonly used tools in Software QA Automation can be categorized into three major types, namely, Test Management tools (these tools help with test case creation, planning, and execution), Functional Testing tools (these tools help with testing individual software features and reporting errors), and Performance Testing tools (these tools help determine the scalability and reliability of the software application). There are plenty of automation testing tools available in the market today, which help software teams to successfully build and execute many automated tests.

Trends in QA Automation can help software companies adopt the best practices and methodologies. Given here are a few statistical data that help illustrate how effective is the use of QA Automation in the software industry; for instance (1) Automation in testing reduces QA cycle times by up to 80% (2) nearly 78% of organizations worldwide use test automation for functional or regression testing, (3) 47% of testers use automation tools for QA testing, and (4) Automation in testing also lowers the overall QA costs by 60%. Software QA Automation is vital for increasing efficiency, reducing costs, and maintaining software quality in today’s fast-paced Agile development environment. Moreover, data on test automation metrics and KPIs provide a valuable way to determine the organization’s return on any investment, understand which parts of test automation are or aren’t working, and improve upon them.
