Software testing is a laborious and long process which must not be omitted in any case if it is important for us to deliver a full-born product. However, many tasks performed by manual testers are repetitive processes which take a lot of time, require many activities and due to their repetitive nature increase the risk of errors. In such situations, automated testing might help you. In many projects, it lets you release some burden from your specialists and assign them to more demanding activities, and simultaneously it contributes to increasing ROI in testing.
Check out how Craftware experts can prepare your organization to enter the next level of software quality development.

Craftware employs a dozen of automating testers who have taken part in international projects.
Knowledge of frameworks
We know HPE UFT, Selenium Webdriver and derivatives, Provar, Soap UI, Rational Integration Tester, Rational Functional Tester, Postman, etc.
We combine technical and consulting skills. We will help you to take the next step on the road to test automation.
We create our automatic tests so that they are available in the future also for your employees.
At the beginning, we determine the areas that we need to test automatically and think about the business value we want to achieve using them.
Is it checking the system performance? And perhaps we need quick information on the quality of the product that is being built. When we determine the purpose of automatic tests, we take care of the technical aspect, that is we select the tool, and create the test environment and scripts necessary to perform tests. When we start them, w can analyze the results and verify whether we have managed to achieve the intended business value.
Automation is indispensable at performance, load and overload testing. However, there are aspects that are hard to automate. Some non-functional tests, i.e. related to aesthetics, clarity or legibility, are based on subjective impressions. We cannot determine the initial conditions and expected result for them. The appearance or clarity can only be judged by a human eye (so it is subject to manual testing). Similarly, it is not possible to automate accessibility tests which are performed to evaluate the software with respect to adaptation to the needs of disabled people. The recommended automation scope should include the requirements of regressive tests. In their plan, its is necessary to determine which parts of test cases for manual regression are subject to automation.
Test automation should not be focused on new or changing functionalities and areas.
Repetitiveness is a great advantage of automation. Assuming that automatic tests are implemented correctly, we can be sure that necessary actions will performed exactly the same at each occasion. Moreover, unlike humans, these tests “work” constantly without breaks for coffee, sleep or weekend rest. ? However, automatic tests lack some elements that are needed to completely test an application, that is intelligence, intuition and imagination. Automation supplements manual tests but cannot replace exploration tests or a technique based on error guessing which relies on the tester’s experience both in the context of the tested product and the tools that were used to create it.
