    • Arvind says:

      Yes, I agree but manual testing cannot be replaced with the Automation. Automation can be done at an extent of maximum to 90-99%, not 100 percent since the tool itself will have certain limitations about the memory management, resources, platform on which the product need to be tested.

    The question arising at each stage of development is that regression after each iteration takes too long, and the functionality being verified often had no changes. Consequently, the possibility of defects is quite low. As a natural result, we arrive at an idea to automate all regression scenarios and refuse manual regression testing.

  • With the rise of software in every domain, there is no doubt about the future of software testing. The ever increasing introduction of new software and updating of existing software shows the importance of software testing. Software development industry is getting new changes as the year progresses. Similarly, software testing training institutes are also adapting to the changes in the industry. The rapid technological advancements in the software testing industry drive the testers to upgrade their skills periodically.
    The last decade has seen an impressive evolution of the software testing industry. This rapid scale of development is keeping not just the developers, but also the testers on the balance, making them to continuously strive to update their skills. The quality of the product cannot be compromised at any time and therefore there will always be plenty of opportunities for testers but preference would be more for the ones with a hand in the knowledge of automation tools. Mastering of automation is intricate and so we can say that both manual and automation testing know-how is essential for any tester to establish him.

    Really nice blog which contains the fundamentals of QA testing.
    Software QA testing is not going away any time soon. However, the skills required for this job are changing. Codeless automation tools are becoming more and more valuable for companies that want to integrate testing into all aspects of the development process, rather than tack a test onto the end of their waterfall cycle. If these tools are implemented, a wider variety of people are going to be involved in testing as a process due to the decreasing technical demands.
