Better software testing through automation

How to improve your CI/CD workflow and build higher-quality software faster with automated testing

Automated testing is an integral part of the continuous delivery pipeline. Despite its benefits, in reality most organizations still use outdated manual testing processes. In one survey by XBOsoft, an automated testing consultancy, only 28 percent of the respondents automate more than 50 percent of their test cases. In another survey by WorkSoft, an SAP partner, 60 percent of survey respondents (mostly SAP customers) noted that their testing was almost fully manual.

This is largely because teams want to avoid the perceived pain involved in setting up an automated testing process. But the effort is definitely worth it. By identifying the right tool, framework, and technical approach, organizations can adopt automation in a more seamless process.
