As businesses grow, it becomes a necessity to constantly meet the growing demands of their customers’ development and testing requirements. Also similar is a scenario in which the size of the test team increases, as it becomes necessary to introduce advanced automated testing tools that can efficiently meet the growing testing needs of the projects.
Automated testing is one of the key areas that can improve the throughput of the test teams. This is because; test automation tools can handle all key testing processes, from resource management to generating statistics. Testing services take advantage of the built-in project management features that help track different test cases, and thus for multiple test environments simultaneously.
Using automated test solutions can help switch between different projects and releases, allowing the test group to run multiple tests simultaneously. Test solutions can now be easily integrated with the existing test environment, enabling centralized management of the test repository. Testing tools contribute to existing speed and accuracy levels, improving the operational efficiency of the entire project.
The test automation tools provide important functions such as document management, execution planning and an efficient defect tracking system that significantly reduces the total project duration. This in turn helps with timely project deliveries and high cost benefits for the organization.
In a regular test scenario, the test leader finds it cumbersome to receive test updates from his team members. This is because each team member may be working on multiple test projects and may find it difficult to consolidate the data. In practice, this way of working does not help to meet deadlines because there are no specific resources for one project. Testing tools help consolidate data at any time, which also allows efficient resource management.
Testing tools can also be integrated with existing QA methodologies. It is advisable to choose test automation tools that can provide test execution planning and also manage access controls within the project and for multiple projects.
Choose a test automation tool that provides efficient resource and test handling functions to improve the overall operational efficiency of the test management team.
