The process of utilizing software to automate software testing is known as test automation. Test automation has a wide range of applications, including regression testing, performance testing, and security penetration testing. The fundamental advantage of test automation is that it enables more accurate and effective testing than is possible when testing manually.
Additionally, test automation can be used to develop tests that simulate real-world events and to automate manual procedures like those necessary for regulatory compliance or business continuity plans. Unlike manual testing, automation testing does not require any kind of human intervention. This method of software testing is practiced by almost all the organizations in the IT industry and is very popular nowadays. IT companies have test automation engineers who handles and manages all the automated testing procedures.
