How fusing manual and automated testing transcends tradeoffs

The age-old debate of manual and automated testing has often left teams at a crossroads, searching for a way to strike a harmonious balance between speed and effectiveness. However, in the world of software development, evolution is the name of the game. Enter “fused testing,” our approach that transcends the conventional notion of QA tradeoffs and broadens the horizons of QA strategy. 

Fused testing is not just about reconciling the differences between manual and automated testing; it’s about unleashing the power of CI/CD pipelines, on-demand resources, and the convergence of DevOps and TestOps. Get ready to discover a testing strategy that saves time and enhances the quality of your software products, ultimately delivering results that speak to the expectations of your development team and your customers.

Automated and Manual Testing 

Automated testing’s benefits rely on the speed and efficacy of a well-implemented pipeline. Once configured, you have a reusable and reliable framework to test user flow with minimal hassle. Sometimes, this leads to tight integration into your platform of choice. 

Both methods have their benefits but can be time-consuming when used separately. Fused testing merges both these approaches to deliver a CI/CD pipeline that gets results in days rather than weeks. Not only will this save your organization time, but it’ll also keep your development team from writing wasteful code.

On-Demand and Dedicated Resources 

Continuous Testing

Testers leap into action quickly when you need them, swarm testing requirements, and then intentionally go dormant. As a result, capacity is available when needed, and automated testing takes the lead in the interim.

Using a third-party managed service provider can be beneficial, as you have resources on call to start each phase of your testing cycle. Suppose the automated testing workflow is well-designed. In that case, you can readily have results available for all testing platforms, regardless of whether they’re using mobile devices, web interfaces, or more conventional computers.

DevOps and TestOps Systems 

Open architecture can and should be implemented, as this will help minimize costs while maintaining maximum flexibility in how you approach development and testing. When properly implemented, shipping deliverables should result in much faster results. 

This is a very different approach to development, resulting in higher-quality software being released more timely. While DevOps has been crucial to modern software development, timelines still slip due to limited software, out-of-date DevOps architectures, and integration issues.
