As a global practitioner of automated testing, we frequently script and run a high number of automated tests for the businesses we work with.
So, we know better than most that when you have a high volume of test results to analyse, it can be challenging to analyse and understand insights about the product. Even exporting results in Excel will not help as such large amounts of data makes it difficult to identify trends.
But thanks to innovative automation solutions, we now have visual test analytics built into the tools, which allow us to draw conclusions quickly and easily from the test results.
Many automation tools provide visual test analytics such as Micro Focus UFT, TestProject.io and more. These let you explore the data in several dimensions, making it simple for anyone on the team to understand, including developers, testers, business analysts, management and other stakeholders.
Why Use Visual Test Analytics?
Visual test analytics helps you to gain greater insights into a product being developed and facilitate problem-solving. Test results are easier to understand with the help of a graph compared to a long set of data.
The benefits of relying on visual test analytics include:

- Faster and easy analysis and interpretation of results that involve large volumes of data
- Remove the need for any specific knowledge or training
Who Can Take Advantage?
Anyone on the team can work with test results. Some examples of this include:
