3 Process Automation Examples to Learn From

Do people in your organization regularly cut and paste data from one enterprise application into another? That kind of pain point in a workflow is exactly what process automation can help overcome. Repetitive tasks and manual processes lurking inside business processes slow down teams, introduce human error, and erode employee engagement. Slow, ineffective processes can also kill an organization’s time to market and customer satisfaction.


Different test automation team structures and their levels of autonomy

71% of businesses are using an agile development methodology. Agile emphasizes continuous integrations to produce incremental value often. Although this strategy is fancy in theory, it involves a lot of regression testing for the testers. Maintaining all the application features and offering continuous testing assistance becomes a headache for testing teams, particularly when the application is moving toward perpetual expansion.


5 Things to Know Before Starting Your Next Process Automation Project

Process automation is a worthy goal for any organization. Automation unleashes human innovation, increases process effectiveness, and empowers your operations to adjust to change. But taking a pell-mell approach to automation will put these benefits at risk—you might actually create new inefficiencies you’ll have to rectify later. So before you get started with process automation, keep these five key things in mind.


How to Automate Localization Testing

When you launch a software product or application into a local market, you want to ensure its flawless functionality. Localization testing is a critical process in the software development life cycle that ensures the software is accurately localized and functions as expected in the target market. However, as with any testing process, localization testing can be time-consuming, repetitive, and error-prone, especially when dealing with multiple languages and locales. It’s ripe for automation.

The Landscape of AI-Enabled Test Automation Tools

Midnight, December 31, 1999, marked the beginning of a millennium where aircrafts would not fall out of the sky and bank ATMs would not spew millions of dollars from their cash withdrawal slots. Preemptive software testing and remediation on a global scale provided the automated world with some assurance that the machines would continue to run as they had for decades.


10 Ways to Reduce Test Automation Script Failure Rates

More than 70% of automation script failures are false and are caused by poor automation design practices. The False Failure Rate (FFR) is the percentage of tests that falsely fail when a test suite is run. It is calculated by dividing the number of false failures (failed tests that actually passed) by the total number of tests that were executed during a test run. Higher false failure rates increase testing and maintenance costs.
