Should you consider automated testing?
Automated software QA offers advantages such as test-explicitness, bug reproducibility, and test reusability. The most significant advantage is speed of repetitive testing and savings in associated costs and time. Additional benefits include allowance for vital load testing, performance testing, and stress testing. Automated testing also greatly simplifies and reduces costs associated with tests difficult for manual testers to complete, such as processing dozens of transactions simultaneously or generating multiple accounts. Having a single automated test suite can reduce hours of redundant manual testing, translating directly into QA outsourcing cost savings for you.
Choosing the wrong tools or test methodologies can be costly in dollars, time, and results. Because Shasta QA operates as a provider of a subset of IV&V services, you can be assured of unbiased recommendations as to whether or not automation is the right choice. Targeting the specific software QA needs and requirements for you and your products will provide the most effective cost and testing experience, substantial ROI, and, ultimately, the competitive advantage that sets your company apart.
