Free Analysis

Manual testing is executed by a human who operates through computer carefully executing the test steps. Automation testing uses testing tools to execute the test case set. These tools demand considerable investments of money and resources. These tools record the test suite so that user can replay it if required. A manual test is very time consuming and may occur an error. Test automation overcomes these disadvantages. Test tool selection, the scope of automation, planning, designing and development, test execution and maintenance are the steps involved in automates the test. The test tool selection mainly depends on the technology the application under test is built on.

Increasing trend of digital transformation is the major driving factor for the demand of test automation market. Continuous adoption and development of the mobile application are expected to propel market growth over the forecast period.
