How Agile Development works?

So Where Does Automation Testing Fit In Agile Development?

When should you apply Automation Testing in Agile Development?

  • If a single test case is to be tested repeatedly.
  • If your test cases are very tedious and time-consuming.
  • If you have to run the test cases with different data and conditions several times
  • If you a similar test suite that needs to be executed for different user sets.
  • If you have got a narrow release window, and saving time is your top priority.
  • When test cases need to be executed with various browsers and environments

Things That Make Agile Developer’s Life Difficult

Detection of defects at an early stage:

Inadequate API testing:

Inadequate test coverage:

Broken code due to frequent builds:

Performance bottlenecks:

Why Agile Developers Love Automation Testing

  • Faster Speed: Automating the testing introduces speed to our development methodology.
  • Greater ROI(Return on Investment): Though initial investment cost is high, but due to the advantages the return on investment is one long term and is time saving too.
  • Reliable Deployments: By employing the use of scripts for the testing procedure reliability is increased to many folds.
  • Parallel Testing: Same script can run on different devices hence simultaneous testing
  • Reusable Code Scripts: Once a script a developed, you can use it number of times to test the software bug. Different updations can also be made in the same script to use it for latest user requirements.
