Definition of test automation or
what is test automation?
Test automation is the process of automated test procedures. Test activities run completely automatically, while the goal of cost reduction and time saving are in the foreground and the number of manually performed tests is reduced to a minimum.
This is particularly useful in the IT sector if, for example, recurring tests (so-called smoketests) can be automated.
At the same time, valuable time can be used for release/version-specific test cases, for example. Furthermore, automated tests relieve the teams while quality does not suffer from annoying volatile errors.Predominantly, testing is done with the test automation tools available on the market - however, more and more test software developers can be found who can specifically address and control the software to be tested.
