With technology come better products and services. And merging with the emerging needs of the businesses today, the software and tools have variations in them. What was once loved as the most suited technique for testing tools and software is an outdated one today. All thanks to the developing economy and businesses in line with it.
Today there are automated testing tools empowered by artificial intelligence and machine learning. These serve as meaningful enough in reducing the efforts put into checking each of the software while also decreasing the inefficient results. Here is how the new techno tools have reduced the importance of traditional ones.
Test design and process
The traditional models of test designing and processing involved a lot of manual input. Be it the designing of the test scripts, choosing the time, technicalities etc everything needed to be done by manual input for every test taken. But with the growth of the continuous testing platform the human need has marginalized. Once the tools are set initially they have referential integrity and automated test care generation abilities to ensure that continuous tests are done repeatedly.
Coding and programming
Traditionally the test tools required intensive coding to set the references for running tests. And this involved setting of new scripts each time a test was to be done. But now the technology has evolved bringing in codeless automation tools that are smart enough to function in built in frameworks bringing in reusable and modular ease.
Execution of the tests
With the introduction of cloud computing systems and a range of compatible operating systems the new techno tools can be easily used on a vast range of platforms. These are compatible with majority of the operating systems. Browsers, programming languages, cloud based software etc. Earlier there was a need to get integration done externally to make a tool connected to cloud or operating systems.
Hefty pricing structure
Of course technology and advanced tools were rare a few years back. And therefore the purchase of the software and tools required licenses and hefty prices to pay. There were also hidden costs to bear with each new software or tool. But today the growing market has marginalized the cost cutting down on the needs of licenses or hidden costs. It’s a cheap market for even the most advanced technologies.
If you look back into outdated manual testing platforms they require a lot more hard work. Continuous testing platforms are more accurate and easy as compared to them!
