[WHITEPAPER] Selenium Automation?

Is Selenium the right automation tool for you? Whether you're researching your automation tool options and considering Selenium, or you've already used Selenium but realized it might not be the tool for you, you've come to the right place.

In this whitepaper, we answer the most common questions in connection with Selenium automation: What can you use Selenium for? Can I use Selenium to automate my ERP or CRM system and other applications? What does it take to use Selenium? And what are the pros and cons of using Selenium?

Selenium is a popular software testing tool that is open-sourced and supports most browsers and operating systems. It’s perhaps most popularly known for allowing testers to automate in any preferred programming language. So it's no wonder that many research this as an automation tool option.

However, Selenium isn't easy to learn as it requires good coding skills, and it also takes a lot of time and effort to maintain. But many don't realize that until they've already spent many hours and resources on getting started with it.

That's why we've written this whitepaper - to help you find out if Selenium is the right tool for you, and if it's worth the investment, before you put in considerable time and effort.

In this whitepaper, you will get:

  • An overview of the Selenium tool suite
  • The pros and cons of the Selenium tool
  • A guide to evaluating if Selenium meets your testing needs
  • An alternative to Selenium that solves many of the problems faced by Selenium users
