Why Invest in Functional Automation Testing Tools?by Qualitia Soft Qualitia Soft - Test Automation
In the rush of meeting deadlines, schedules, and release dates, have you ever considered skipping the process of software testing? For some absurd reason testing is regarded as the least important part of the software development lifecycle. There are times when companies tend to go further and further through the development process having skipped all the important testing steps. Today in the day and age of functional automation testing tools, skipping testing for the sake of saving time is not required. Not only do these tools fasten the process of functional testing but also increase the pace of development.
And if you are still considering to skip testing your software product then give this a read. Here’s what happens when you don’t test your software.
What Happens if You Don’t Test?
Time and again we all notice the failure of software products, and often get to hear that the software wasn’t adequately tested. Although companies often worry about the expenses involved in adopting automated functional testing; finding and fixing issues after development and going back and forth for a prolonged period of time is even more expensive. Therefore, not investing in a functional automation testing tool not only increases the risks associated with quality but also dramatically increases the final the cost of that project.
Like with software coding defects, it is least expensive to find a defect in the initial stages of the development process. The same applies to testing - it should be done continuously and parallel with development. Testing just before the release will always lead to not enough testing and will further add to costs and increase time-to-market.
So, the point here is that, not conducting software testing won’t just cost you the failure of a worthwhile product but will also get you negative publicity. All of this leading to a gigantic loss of revenue and a stain on the image you took years to polish.
It’s aptly said, “If you don’t like testing your product, most likely your customers won’t like to test it either.” So it’s clear that software testing plays an integral part in generating the desired business outcome for businesses. With the ease and speed of the new generation of functional automation testing tools, the process of testing is not only faster but also more effective and ROI-driven.
