Three reasons why Selenium Test Automation works
Globally, the process is set as to with all development groups testing their build before deploying and co-working with testers to identify the bugs ahead of the release into live. Manual testing was proving to be the least effective solution owing to the huge amount of manual errors and also due to various limitations. As a solution to this painful situation, certain repeated tests were automated to increase the testing efficiency. Thus test automation was born.
Automation testing becomes critical as it improves accuracy, provides test coverage in short period of time at a lower cost. As per Transparency Market Research, the global test automation market which in 2015 had a valuation of US $12.91 bn, is expected to reach US $85.84 bn by the end of 2024.
