Test automation holds the promise that your entire application can be tested against potentially hundreds of devices, operating systems, and browser combinations – in a fraction of the time it would take to test manually. It may take a human several minutes to manually execute a test scenario, clicking and typing their way through a test case via the web or mobile interface; whereas a well-designed automated solution with the computer navigating these same actions might be accomplished after a few seconds. Multiply that time savings by several hours, or even several days for a complete regression run of your app and you can see why automation is in high demand these days.

The very first step in automating the functional testing of your app is determining if it is even necessary to begin with. Although there are huge gains to be made by automating your testing, there is a significant up-front effort and expense. Our engineers at OnPath Testing work with you in examining a variety of criteria to determine the benefit of automation for your software:

  • How stable are the various features of your product?  
  • How complex are these features?
  • How many platforms are you testing on?
  • What is the spread of your user base across these platforms?
  • What are the risks of not testing lesser-used platforms – if any?
  • …and more

Our automation engineers excel at creating for you the best solution for your application needs. With engineers experienced across the spectrum of technologies we look at your needs holistically, based on the application, the resources and knowledge already available to you in-house, your budget and time constraints, and more – and make our professional recommendation based on reality rather than convenience.

In addition to the critical list of foundational QA skills – requirements analysis and test planning, test execution and defect planning, our automation engineers have the technical and development skills needed to provide a solid automation solution. We recognize that automating your test efforts for long-term value means approaching the task as one would with any development effort – designing a solid framework as the foundation and structure; following best practices with coding conventions and source control; proper unit testing and verification of the app logic; and confirmation that the logging and reporting provide all the necessary information for your developers and team.
