ZAPTEST helps Enterprises to achieve testing ROI over 10X!
Testing is an overhead! However, any organization that drives business digitally can’t afford to release poor quality software. Development-driven testing doesn’t offer quality testing; there are still quality gaps that result in the loss of customers and revenue. Software must be tested by Quality Assurance professionals! The Quality Assurance process needs to allow Enterprises to perform testing just in time and it needs to be cost efficient.
Traditional software Quality Assurance is the long process. It usually starts with test documentation (manual test cases) development that takes about 30-40% of the overall QA time, than manual test cases are passed to test automation (when used). Test Automation takes another 40-50% of the time. And after all QA teams perform test execution the remaining 10-30% of the time is used.
Traditional QA process is long! It requires multiple people and many man-hours. Specifically, typical test automation technologies that are available for QAs are either API, Image, or HTML-tag based object recognition type and require Application Under Test (AUT) to be present for the automation. Another problem is lack of these tools for cross-platform testing, and therefore it requires development of test artifacts per testing environment that result in multiplication of the test artifacts (development and maintenance) to test given business processes. Also, test execution using these technologies is per platform; that requires each batch of tests to run on the particular testing environment at the time (sequential), and therefore prolongs time for AUT go to market.
All these factors make Quality Assurance of the modern Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) very expensive!!!
