Benefits of Automated and Manual Software Testing

Nowadays, in such a highly competitive industry, demand for new applications and functionality is becoming more important and with the increase in demand software testing companies are require to improve test skills to meet deadlines.
Automated and manual are two techniques used for testing a software. Here in this post we’ll talk about various pros and cons of using both testing services. It will help you to determine which one is the best technique for your website.
Automated Testing
Automated testing is basically done through automated tools. This technique is used when the software is large, complicated, multiple system users or when require to fill many forms.
1. Runs tests effectively and quickly
The initial setting up of automated test cases may take a while but once you start automated your tests, you are good to go. You can reuse tests and this is important factor to ease the task of running regressions on repeatedly changing code.
2. Can be less expensive
Automation tools are less expensive and less time consuming, they save money and time. Such tools can detect errors quickly, can run faster and work more than human in a particular time period. This way it allows a team to complete the execution of the testing more quickly.
3. More interesting
Sometimes filling out same forms again and again can be annoying. Various automation tools are available to solve this problem but one should have technical mind to set test cases which involves coding and thoughts.
Manual Testing
Manual testing is a testing process where a developer run tests manually and compare the program outcomes and actual outcomes to rectify the errors. This technique is good for firms without significant financial sources and fit for smaller software.
1. Short-term cost is lower
Purchasing software automation tools is costly. With manual software testing service, you won’t have to put the same upfront costs into the software.
2. More likely to find real user issues
Automated testing is a kind of robotic and are just automatic. They don’t act like a real user would to determine defects. Some of the errors can only be caught with manual testing.
