How Robotic Process Automation Transforms the Software Testing Industry

Automation has brought a revolutionary change in the IT industry. The ripples of automation are being felt across an array of industries. Automation has made human work much easier by automating repetitive mundane tasks with lowered costs, increased reliability and quality output.

Emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Internet of Things (IoT) are driving the world towards digitalization. Using AI and ML, manual tasks are automated, that’s where Robotic Process Automation (RPA) comes into the picture. And so, RPA is being considered as one of the top trending technologies in the field of software testing industry.

“The robotic process automation software market will grow by 41% year over year to 2020.” - Gartner

What is RPA?

RPA is the technology that creates a virtual workforce also known as software bots to imitate human actions and automate repetitive and rule-based processes. RPA enables work to go on 24/7 without any break and with precision. This, in return, guarantees a superior customer experience. It provides a quality output saving time as employees tend to spend nearly 10% to 20% of their time on repetitive computer tasks that can be easily automated.

RPA positively influences Test Automation when encountering below challenges:

  • Multiple Application Testing
  • Monotonous Testing Work
  • Regression Test Involved to Automate
  • Human Errors in Continuous Manual or Automation Testing
  • Difficulty in Critical Test Automation

Organizations are getting increasingly open to adopting new innovations due to the advancement of technology so they can meet customers’ demands while providing a high-quality product and experience. RPA in software testing can make this entire process hassle-free.

RPA in Software Testing

Customers are demanding faster and better output, so organizations are implementing RPA to automate the processes with minimum errors and optimized processes. RPA provides a high-quality end-product with less effort. It reduces the effort required in end-to-end testing.

Smart bots are used that provides 24/7 services to customers with efficient and accurate output. Manual Processes are automated with the help of RPA procedures that minimizes human efforts in repetitive tasks.

Here’s why the demand of RPA in test automation is increasing day by day:

  • Code-less: No programming skills required
  • Adaptable: Possible to schedule monitoring of work and can operate 24*7
  • Cost Saving: Huge cost reduction as a very minimal workforce is required
  • Accuracy: Bots governed by algorithms accurately perform actions
  • Flexibility: Platform independent. Supports a web-based, legacy, desktop or mobile application
  • Scalability: Virtual workforce can be assigned anytime, and allows parallel execution

Along with these amazing features it also benefits your business in the following ways:

  • Cost Reduction: Bots are cost-effective since they save time and generate output with precision
  • Reduced errors: RPA reduces the rate of human errors as mundane manual tasks are automated
  • Increased throughput and output: RPA testing support the throughput of Big Data Testing that enhances the overall quality and maintenance of your end product even after it hits the market.

RPA is gradually becoming the ‘new normal’ for product development companies. It is advancing test automation to the next level. Along with time and cost benefits, it also reduces human efforts by intelligently putting resources to good use.
