Automation - Is it Really Required?

Introduction

As a product company you may have one or more products. The product may be based on some publicly available standards (like IETF, ITU, 3GPP, W3C etc..) or may be based on proprietary logic / design or both. And every time the release around the corner, you find executing all test cases looks very difficult because of

  • Less time in hand
  • Engineers are busy in high priority works
  • Test cases are not in a central place, present in different machines, with different engineers, depends on different scripting languages etc.

So you end up in compromising testing and release the product. A simple bug caught down the line (in system testing or in field trial) costs more to company in terms of time, effort and money. If the same bug is caught by your customers down the time, it costs money, reputation and affects trust level of users on you.

The best solution is have a single tool, automate all the test cases for all the products (standard / proprietary). During release time, start the test, within expected time get the report and decide on release scope. This is what we help in doing using Load Multiplier (LM) tool.

As LM tool supports many domains / technologies including proprietary product / module testing and provides easy to use great automation framework, so automating all the products be it standard product or proprietary product is not that difficult. Our LM tool experts helps many companies automating their products. You may like to contact us to exploit our expertise in automating entire spectrum of test scenarios.
