With Digital Transformation and Digital Technologies gaining momentum, applications need to get further robust and market ready. The challenging digital transformation requires rigorous and comprehensive testing plan that needs to be repetitive and consistent. This can be feasible only with a test automation plan that can facilitate easy, repetitive, and cost-effective testing. For instance, in case of a gaming application, there is no scope of error or glitch, as it will directly lead to failure of the application and impact the number/frequency of downloads.
While planning the delivery of the software projects, there is always a need to decide on the test automation strategy and what aspects of the application that should be automated. So, it is important to understand the reason or objective of automation. If not done in a thought-through way, it can vex your team and ultimately fail your business objectives.
Now, if we talk about automating functional testing, the objective here is to automate the testing of the features and functionality of the software and touch upon every probability of failure or dysfunctionality.
