It is often assumed that, “Test Automation” as “Automation Testing”.
What is the difference between “Test Automation” and “Automation Testing”?
What is Test Automation?
It is a process of automating a set of tasks – update requirements, creating trace-ability matrix, automatic upload of test cases, automatic generation of test cases, scheduled test execution, mass upload of defects, generation of dashboards to multiple stakeholders, release automation, build automation are some areas, where automation is playing a crucial role in reducing the effort.
What is Automation Testing?
It is a method that is performed with use of a special software tools (Example: Micro Focus – UFT (Formerly HPE – QTP), Selenium, IBM Rational, Telerik, Test Complete, Tosca, Zephyr, Ranorex, etc…) to control the execution of tests and compare actual test results with predicted or expected results.
Automation testing can increase the depth and scope of tests to help improve software quality. To learn more:
What is the difference?
In short, “Test Automation” is more like automating an assembly line. It should be applied in all phases of testing to improve productivity. Whereas, “Automation Testing” is a part of the “Test Automation” – conducting a specific test using an automation tool.
What we do?
Our process of designing tests early in the application life cycle can help to prevent defects from being introduced in the code. We ensure that the software meets the requirements including, functional, performance, reliability, security and usability.
