Automated Software Testing Services
Automation testing services at DeviQA will allow you to significantly speed up and structurize your testing processes and receive reliable solutions.Start a Project
Automated testing is a process that reduces the time for manual testing and replaces it with the structured testing approach which emulates the final user behavior in an automated way.
With the help of frameworks and tools, as well as scripts, this testing approach speeds up various activities, reduces the human factor, and saves man time. With test automation, you will never miss any test cases that need to be checked.

Tests can be run at any time of the day or night
Create it once and execute multiple times
Automatic reports are generated after test execution
Low cost for maintenance
cheaper in the long run than manual testing
eliminates the possibility of human error in the testing process
The Problems with UI Test Automation
Automated testing is beneficial and increases the release cycle, but it has potential issues for under-skilled automation teams.
The most significant of these problems include running time and stability. In most cases, this isn’t a problem with tests in the dozens, but if your product grows and your test framework consists of hundreds of tests. Once they start failing randomly and preventing timely releases, your team will grow increasingly frustrated since no one knows whether there’s a bug in the test application or the test suite.
Imagine having thousands of tests that require hours to run. This takes time, and not everyone is willing to wait.
How We Work
We don't use any recorders. We code everything ourselves.
Use API and direct requests to the server to save time and increase efficiency.
Multithreading (parallel tests) to speed up testing.
Auto-tests integrated with bug-tracking systems (e.g. Jira) and test case management systems (TestRail).
The complex environment with an ecosystem comprised of several machines
Continuous integration of testing into the build process.
Various technologies and programming languages depending on the project
Test across multiple platforms, browsers, and devices.
Running tests in the cloud.
Low-level testing (API)
Full-featured reporting system
Turnkey test automation solutions
Why to choose DeviQA
design the architecture
configure the deliverables
write scenarios that are smart and atomic
integrate tests into your continuous integration process
reduce the responsibility for automated testing from your shoulders
The reason behind automation tests failing
Incorrect test suite architecture
Test data is not compatible with the real one
Lack of continuous integration
Wrong selection of automation tools and/or frameworks
Lack of basic skills for automation testing. In 90% of cases, record-and-playback is not enough
Regression test scripts used may not have evolved as the product changed
A possibly incomplete testing plan may not have included a GUI or had test functionality
Automated testing may have been carried out across the board, even on unsuited test cases
Automation may have been added as an afterthought rather than being part of the overall testing strategy

What do automated tests cover?
Automated tests cover:
Load, preformance, stress testing
Functional and cross-platform/device testing
Web, mobile, desktop applications as well as API
How is a tool/framework for automated testing selected?
There are few key things to do:
Understand the project stack. In most cases, there are no “bad” or “good” test automation tools, but there are tools more suitable for web and mobile automation testing.
For web automated tests, it’s good practice to select a tool/framework based on the same program language (e.g. if your backend is based on Java, try to use a framework based on Java) especially in regards to API tests.
For api automated tests, it’s good practice to select a tool/framework based on the same program language (e.g. if your backend is based on Java, try to use a framework based on Java).
Availability of the documentation, manuals, and community (especially for a new framework)
Knowledge of the tools’ resources (people should be aware of poor points of the framework, its limitations, as well as its possibilities)
Truncated solutions (it will save time if the company creates some truncated solutions based on the framework)
Should a record/play tool be used instead of custom scripting for test automation?
If you are going to have few dozen tests and you aren’t concerned about maintaining your test suite, and you do not need to speed up your tests through multithreading, the record/play solutions should be sufficient. In the event that your test suite contains hundreds or thousands of tests, they should run quickly so that releases aren’t delayed. They should be reliable and easy to maintain, so you should certainly use custom solutions based on well-known test automated frameworks.
What should the automation priority be?
To ensure the usefulness of automated tests, coverage must begin at the most important areas of the application, like:
High risk - business critical test cases
Test Сases that are repeatedly executed (regression test suite)
Test cases that are tedious or difficult to perform manually
Test cases that are time-consuming
Is it possible to cover 100% of functionality with UI test automation?
In most cases, no. Some scenarios may require so much effort that it makes no sense to automate them. However, 93% code of coverage is typically achievable.
What is better: automated or manual testing?
They have their pros and cons. One isn’t necessarily any better than the other. A human engages in manual testing, painstakingly checking to ensure the application performs as expected. Automated testing occurs after initial development of the application has been completed. These prolonged tests can run on their own and are poorly suited for manual testing. They can also run in parallel on various types of operating systems and browsers. The two types of testing are related, but have slightly different purposes. Automated testing can speed up the process, reduce the amount of manpower required, make a more structured approach to testing, and it can also automate repeated activities.
Automated testing costs too much. Do I really need it?
While, at first, the cost of automated testing may seem difficult to justify, it pays for itself in the end. Since they take out the human component, that man power can be shifted to more important issues, like customer needs, functionality, and improvements. You will also require fewer code revisions, and the ones that do occur will be cheaper. The tests are also reusable, so once the source code changes, you can just run the tests again. While manual testing is expensive and takes a lot of time, you can engage in automated testing as much as you want with no additional cost.
How can we speed up our tests?
One of the key features of automation tests is the reduction of time spent on testing. For big projects with thousands of automation tests created, batch runs can take days to complete. The data for automation tests can depend one by one. This decreases productivity and makes the tests impossible to run in parallel. This usually happens when wrong architecture was created. With such scenarios, the tests would become ineffective and this is where parallelization comes in. Instead of running tests sequentially, parallel testing allows the execution of multiple tests at the same point in time across different environments.
Currently, I do not have automation testing in place. What should my initial steps be?
Your steps should be:
Choose automation tool that covers your needs
Set up test suite architecture
Develop automation tests
Test cases that are time-consuming
Integrate your automation test suite in CI/CD process
Should I integrate automation tests in my CI/CD process?
The short answer “yes.” If you integrate automation tests to your CI/CD process, you will gain the following benefits:
Full automation continuous delivery process
Numerous test report delivery channels
Broken code never deployed to the server
