Test Automation has undeniably taken over the market and organizations across the globe have accepted that it's the way ahead. However, automation as a concept has been misinterpreted at large. Companies may think they've switched to automation, but in reality they're only converting manual scripts to automation scripts. This is certainly not automation. In fact, it's defeating the whole purpose of automation- if you're constantly trying to make automation work for you, then how can you even call it automation? While the market is flooded with several end-to-end testing frameworks that promise test automation, they barely manage to live up to their claims. This is where Qualitia's codeless test automation platform is different from the other end-to-end testing frameworks available in the market, because it provides automation in the true sense.
How is the Functional Testing Platform by Qualitia Different from other End-to-End Testing Frameworks?
Codeless Test Automation
Qualitia’s codeless test automation doesn’t require specialized automation engineers, its ease-of-use allows even manual testers and SME’s to automate.
Almost all other end-to-end testing frameworks (Java for Selenium, VB for UFT, etc.) require users to know the programming language that the automation tool understands. Even all web automation frameworks need proficiency in Java programming. Users are also expected to learn and gain proficiency on their own. A certain proficiency level is assumed which is why there is no formal training given to the users.
Speedy Test Automation
Being 5 x faster than other end-to-end testing frameworks, Qualitia significantly reduces the time spent on executing test cases simultaneously on single or multiple machines, both on premise and on cloud.
Other tools lack an automation approach, thereby reducing the speed of automation, which in-turn causes a delay in delivery cycles and slower time-to-market.
Low Dependency on Humans
Qualitia’s intelligent test automation platform requires minimum human intervention when it comes to supporting the latest technologies.
Other end-to-end testing frameworks have many moving pieces that need continuous human intervention to build and maintain function libraries, manage test data, create reporting layers, managing integrations, debugging and troubleshooting issues.
Qualitia provides out of the box integrations for CI tools like Jenkins, and cloud execution platforms such as BrowserStack, Sauce Labs. Additionally, it also integrates with Version Control tools and bug tracking tools.
All other end-to-end testing frameworks lack a product approach and hence are built incrementally. It is customary to build ‘add-ons’ and ‘bolt-ons’ to enhance the suitability of the frameworks for a particular application under test.
Premium Support Services
When user-level issues are encountered, Qualitia troubleshoots and resolves them with established SLAs.
In the case of other end-to-end testing frameworks there are no established SLAs to troubleshoot project level issues. SLAs are not clearly defined which leads the project teams to make their own modifications to the framework and build their own versions. Testing teams build heavy dependencies on the group that has developed the Framework.
Therefore, if you’re looking for a functional testing solution, then Qualitia’s codeless test automation platform is a clear winner compared to all other end-to-end testing frameworks available in the market.
