Framework Guide – Benefits of Automation testing

Ranorex Studio's automated functional testing tools

What Is a Test Automation Framework? 

A test automation framework is a collection or library of actions that can be used to perform various types of testing, such as unit testing, regression testing, integration testing, smoke testing, and more. Frameworks typically come in one of two approaches: direct code only, which requires developer skills, or no code, which any manual tester can use to build powerful automated tests without any development experience.

Why Use a Test Automation Framework?

Whether you’re a developer or a manual tester, test automation frameworks can be a huge help when it comes to increasing code reuse and portability, reducing script maintenance, saving costs, and more. Depending on your team’s skill background and specific use case, the value from deploying a test automation framework could be almost instantaneous!

Focus on your application, not your automation

Achieve test automation goals

Achieve test automation goals

When the whole team is responsible for quality, it is important that everyone can contribute to test automation. As Ranorex Studio supports keyword-driven testing, you can ensure that each person’s skill is put to the best use.
Instant productivity

Benefit from day-one productivity

Minimize the learning curve. Easy-to-use tools and a built-in methodology enable testers to create modular automation scripts that are efficient and maintainable, regardless of programming expertise.

Efficient, modular tests

Keep maintenance low

Since short release cycles produce software that is continuously evolving, updating automated tests can require considerable effort. The Ranorex studio object repository enables you to easily manage all your UI elements in one place.
Robust field validations

Accelerate the feedback loop

Monitor the impact of software changes on the system by integrating automated testing in your CI/CD environment. Trigger your smoke tests for every code change. Run your full regression suite in parallel or distributed on a Selenium Grid and get results in a fraction of the time.
