Test automation can be a great solution to reducing time to market when you release new features and functionality. Automation is an important tool in the QA workbench, but it can’t do everything. At Digivante we take a pragmatic approach to test automation: we’re objective about where to automate your testing, based on where it will save you time and money.
It’s a myth that automating everything is the best value testing approach, despite what many people say. If you automate the wrong tests, it will cost you more – not just in repeat testing and redevelopment at a later date but potentially in lost revenue and customer approval due to glitchy or non-functioning websites and apps.
At Digivante we choose the right type of test for the right time in your project, for the best overall outcome. We work with you to define the appropriate moments for test automation, complemented by manual or crowdsourced testing where it delivers better value and results.
For example, testing multiple cases for integrations with payment and stock management systems is usually a great opportunity for automation.
Digivante’s test automation delivers
At Digivante we focus on using automation in context of your best possible ROI. We only automate where it will save you time and money.
We run every test case manually first to find out which pass and which fail. Only those that consistently pass manual testing are considered for automation, giving you confidence in those test cases.
The Digivante testing portal gives a single interface to action both test automation and community testing, so you have fast access to data-driven insights for informed decision-making.
How Digivante test automation works
At Digivante we start by running every test manually, to ensure the test case works. Then we record all the actions to build the skeleton of the code. It’s a systematic approach to make sure nothing’s missed.
Working with Digivante gives you cover whilst you’re building your test automations: you can carry out manual testing with our test community throughout, so there are no gaps or pauses in your development.
We devise a plan with your team to iteratively grow the test automation coverage, as they add new scenarios. We can execute your automated test suite manually, through scheduling or using our suite of Digivante APIs.
Using our portal or the APIs, you can check test status and see your results any time. We provide technical information for truly automated tests, plus in-depth results with images and videos for our crowd-sourced testing services.
