Do you still use manual methods to test your applications? Does your competition test and effect multiple releases in the time you do one? Automating your testing processes will significantly speed up your release cycles. Automated software testing (also called test automation) is very simply put, a process where software tests software. Predefined automation tools run the test suite and return reports on critical outcomes. All this automation testing happens with minimal human intervention.
Through test automation, Testhouse can significantly improve your turnaround times and release cycles while drastically reducing costs and improving quality, efficiency and work ability of your applications. Our Test Automation consultants will help you choose the most appropriate testing tools and methods that will work the best for you. Let our tools do the Automation testing for you!
If you are used to manual testing, you probably expect to have a user interface in order to test the application. However, in the software world testing can be done by interacting with the application via its API. The service layer provides a very well defined semantic which can be used for testing the business logic of an application. By taking advantage of this, you can create a set of automated tests that can reliably validate this area of your application and be very cost effective.
During manual functional testing, the user has to manually interact with the User Interface, perform common scenarios, and ensure they get the correct outcome. However, this is very labour intensive and expensive in terms of manual resources as the regression suite will grow as your product evolves. To circumvent those limitations, a subset of your manual tests should be automated. This is achieved by using specialized software that is capable of interacting with your application. Despite its up-front cost, test automation has a good ROI as those tests can be re-executed as often as desired without any manual intervention. Some tests are more suited for test automation such as:
Mobile devices such as smartphones have become so important that they are now the main tool of interaction with Internet. Ever increasingly, native applications are becoming available on those devices even before desktop ones. However, due to the competing operating systems from various vendors and also to the various form factors, the amount of testing required is phenomenal. Unless you want to restrict support to just a few models (but you will also restrict your client’s reach), you will have to test the application across tens of devices, each having different operating systems, screen ratios & resolution and capabilities. Testhouse has a well-equipped mobile testing lab with an array of real devices deployed on a cloud-based solution at your disposal to automatically test any of your applications.
Web-based applications are client/server applications designed to work inside a browser. With so many browser editions and versions on the market (Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, Chrome, etc.), it is impossible to test them all. This proves even more difficult when we consider all the various mobile devices (Android, Apple, Windows Phone to name a few) that may potentially run the application. In these circumstances, test automation can greatly help as you can write the automated test once and test it across the various browsers and mobile devices. Web-based test automation projects are some of our longest-running regular testing projects with very happy clients.
