[WHITEPAPER] Functional UI Testing: An Introduction to Codeless Test Automation

Faced with frequent product releases and system upgrades, there is increasing pressure on the resources used in software testing. One small change or upgrade can affect the whole software within seconds meaning that, if the functionality is not being continuously tested as per design, a single bug could have a tremendous effect on user experience. 

In order to catch these bugs as quickly as possible, testers must continuously run functional UI test cases that, if performed manually, become time-consuming and exposed to human error. On the other hand, automating functional UI test cases allows the test manager to efficiently find bugs by continuously running tests as the software is being developed.

Automation helps QA teams focus on “Quality at Speed”, a concept that focuses on avoiding human intervention wherever possible, reducing costs, increasing quality, and achieving better time to market. 

 

However, most test automation tools rely on coding capabilities, which creates a dependency on the development team, or requires the testers to learn how to code. Test automation, which was supposed to free up resources for human testers, brings with it an array of new costly tasks. This is what we call the ‘Test Automation Paradox’.

In this whitepaper, we will outline why you should automate your functional UI tests using a codeless – or ‘no-code’ –  automation tool in order to manage your resources more efficiently and allow testers to take back full ownership of the testing process.
