Software Testing and Automation Services

Software testing essentially makes sure the software (or software component) works the way you wanted it to when you set out to develop or purchase a software solution. As the software goes through the cycle, manual testing tasks need to be performed in order to ensure desired outcome. Automating these repetitive tasks will ensure that the complete solution will get re tested every time a change is introduced

Why use us to automate your regression testing?

• Reduced test cycle times improves your time to market

• No time zone barriers (Europe and Africa) make it easy to work with us
• Reduced software testing costs through automation and a favourable exchange rate
• Automated regression testing to support your Agile teams

What is test Automation

Test Automation is the process of using test scripts to automatically interrogate various software and system functions to ensure they work as expected. While Test Automation has many benefits over Manual (or Functional) Testing, it is best used in conjunction with Manual and Exploratory Testing for the most comprehensive Quality Assurance possible.

Why is test automation important?

There are many benefits to automating your system and Software Testing, the two most obvious being time and cost savings.
This is particularly true for Regression Testing, which tests for issues whenever new functions are added to software. Test scripts written for existing functions can be run every time new functions are added, ensuring the changes don’t negatively impact other parts of the system. For larger, complex systems this process is often time and labour intensive, so Automated Regression Testing reduces that time and cost penalty.

Why whould a test automation Done?

In general, we recommend testing – and Test Automation in particular – to be done as early in the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) as possible.
Unit Testing: this is the first and easiest part of the process to automate, and gets developers involved in testing their own software units before they progress upward to the API level.
API Testing: more complex and more expensive, testing at the API level should focus on the integrations between backend systems for your application.
UI Testing: this is the largest and most expensive tier to test, but is typically where many companies are exposed to testing in general and Test Automation in particular.
Gumoa works on the principle of ‘pushing down’ Test Automation to the next lowest level. In that way, the most expensive and time-consuming automation is reduced to testing only what hasn’t been tested at the Unit or Integration layers of your application.

What are the benefits of Test Automation?:

Aside from the obvious time and cost savings, particularly for Automated Regression Testing, Test Automation has several important benefits:
Faster feedback – get quicker results and address any issued without delay.
Fewer resources – take up less time and free up manual QA’s to focus on projects.
Wider coverage – test more software and devices more often.
Reuse your tests – script once, test many, especially on similar systems.
Time to market – with testing done, get your software in front of users faster.
