Definitely the effectiveness will e increased as compared to manual testing.The main thing is that it saves time.Anyone can run the test scripts whether they know coding or not.Moreover regression can be done as many times with less time span.

Yes it can, but it can also destroy it. Test automation is difficult issue, because it needs development, and testing skills. It also needs 'test automator' to consider what maintainability means. If that is not considered, ROI is destroyed right away. Non-maintainable test automation requires more debugging time (=test has failed, but you have to investigate why), and fixing the problems (=sometimes the test automation gets out date, and you have to fix it to match correctly behaving code). Also test framework might need maintenance, which must be noted at project plan.

YES, automating can improve effectiveness not efficiency.

Hi buddy,

Well, personally I think yes automation testing services improve test effectiveness and if you need 100% accuracy every time you run the test, then you should go for automation.

There are various reason behind this like:

  • Comprehensive

Even a security manual testing specialist can make errors at times while executing the same set of activity for a long time. So, increase the accuracy of automation.



Yes, Test automation improve your testing steps, there are various steps of automation testing and tools which helps you to improve your testing just like;

  • State of Application
  • Test Steps
  • Verification
  • Validation
  • Data Testing
  • Analysis of the manual Testing Result
  • Post Operation

Yes, 100% True...

Automation Testing play's an important role in improving the Quality, reliability, Effectiveness of the QA Testing Process. There are various Tools for Automation Testing and selenium is one of then, if you to read more about this, visit Here: Python Automation Testing Using Selenium Tool

As per best practices from outsource qa testing company, definitely automation can improve test effectiveness to the great extent. It reduces the execution time and also efficiently catches the bugs which can be missed from a tester performing manual testing. It is greatly beneficial in cases where tester needs to run same repetitive smoke/regression test suites everyday.

But there is another aspect also for considering effectiveness of test automation which mainly depends on ROI, whether you will be able to receive back that much return which you had spend on automation set up like paid tools, highly qualified automation testers, highly configured devices to run automation, maintaining the setup, etc. If these factors can provide positive returns then definitely automation can be the best effective and efficient way for testing.
