In this post, we will discuss the benefits of automation testing.The major benefits of automation testing are as follows:
Automation testing reduces manual testing effort and redundant test operations using a systematic approach to achieving better test coverage.
Manual testing can be boring and repetitive in nature. This might also be error-prone. Automation testing can be a rescue.
Automation testing increases the efficiency and accuracy of tests.
Test Automation is fast when compared to manual testing.
It speeds up the testing process, and to reduce testing costs, time and effort.
Also, it enhances the quality of the product and the effectiveness of the Testing process.
Automation testing releases Testers & Engineers from tedious and redundant testing activities, enables them to be more productive and thus improving work-life balance.
Sprint tasks can be assigned more efficiently when there is automation in place.
Automation significantly increases Test coverage of the product.
Good and positive ROI (Return on Investment ) is possible with Automation testing.
In conclusion, some automation benefits are clearly evident and some returns are long term. Furthermore, like a coin has 2 faces, though automation testing has many advantages, it has its own disadvantages too. I will cover them in my next post.
