For businesses using Oracle software, testing is an essential part of ensuring that business-critical processes run as intended in and between Oracle applications and the business’ remaining ecosystem.
When performed manually, testing is not only extremely time-consuming, but also tedious and error-prone. This is because tests should be executed every time a new process is set up, every time a process is adjusted, and every time Oracle updates their system. That adds up to a lot of testing, and the only way that this is feasible is to automate the testing.
Applying Test Automation in Oracle is particularly critical for the following reasons:
By automating tests, enterprises are not only given the ability to test everything they need within a short time frame, they are also given the confidence that their most critical processes work, and they are notified if something doesn’t, so that they can fix it before it affects the end-user or has financial consequences.
The problem is that setting up and maintaining automation is, to many QA teams, just as time-consuming (at least in the short term) as doing the tests manually. In this way, test automation can seem like a bit of a paradox - it can save you time once you have it, but getting to the point of time-saving is extremely time-consuming.
This is why finding the right tool is essential to success with test automation.
