Test Automation

Improved Performance through Automation in Software Testing

Harnessing AI and automation for software testing boosts reliability and fortifies its performance

In today’s swiftly changing digital economy, ensuring the real-world performance of every application entering the market is critical. With an anticipated 500 million apps to be developed by 2040, test automation’s importance has grown exponentially. Manual testing, once the favored approach for system testing, integration testing, regression testing, exploratory testing, graphical user interface testing, and robotic process automation testing, presents various challenges, including cost, human error, and limited scalability. Automated testing, on the other hand, provides a more robust and efficient testing process, enabling intricate testing without the worry of human error and scalability issues. The overall efficiency of the testing phase is improved, and much faster turnaround times can be achieved with automated testing. It proactively handles quality to avoid production setbacks and offers full requirement traceability and visual logging for quick defect analysis. Test automation can also seamlessly integrate with the application lifecycle management (ALM) toolchain and tools like ServiceNow, SAP Solution Manager, Azure DevOps, and more. Utilizing test robots, organizations can form teams of dedicated bots responsible for running tests and executing common tasks. Test automation often includes a low-code interface, synthetic test data generation, and a wide range of prebuilt activities, making it an ideal solution for testing RPA workflows, web apps, mobile apps, SAP, Citrix, and other applications.


Navigating the Complexities of Test Automation

Test automation has become an indispensable element of the software development process. However, implementing test automation can present various challenges for organizations. One major obstacle is finding the appropriate help, as many companies struggle to locate experts with the required skills and experience to successfully set up test automation. Additionally, the intricacy of the process is a significant challenge, as test automation involves employing advanced technologies and a thorough understanding of software development principles and best practices. Establishing test automation entails creating test cases, identifying testing scenarios, and selecting the most appropriate tools and frameworks to use. This can be a daunting endeavor for organizations without the necessary in-house expertise. Cost is another factor to consider, as test automation can be expensive, particularly for small and mid-sized companies. Investing in suitable tools, frameworks, and infrastructure can be costly, and the added expense of hiring experts to implement and manage test automation can further increase the overall cost.

Moreover, integration is another challenge, as test automation demands integration with other software development tools, such as continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) tools, defect tracking tools, and test management tools. The integration process can be intricate and time-consuming, necessitating a comprehensive understanding of the software development lifecycle. Finally, the challenge of maintenance must be addressed, as test automation requires ongoing maintenance to ensure its effectiveness and efficiency. Test cases must be updated regularly to accommodate software changes, and the testing framework must be updated to remain in line with the latest technologies and best practices.

Unleash the power Test Automation :



Work with Valenta to define your Test Automation Strategy. Test Automation is still at a nascent stage and while some Companies have started using Test Automation, they are unable to scale this solution primarily due to the lack of understanding of how the technology works and having unrealistic expectations.

Test-automate, quality assurance

Test Automation

With Test Automation, ensure every requirement is fully tested. Whether automated or manual, your tests can be linked to stories, epics, defects, or any other artifact type in your existing Application Lifecycle Management tools. That ensures traceability and full test coverage.​


Design great tests

Design great tests, then automate them with drag and drop speed. Define test cases to cover all requirement variations, then document manual tests in the Test application and build resilient automations in low code.

optimize, execute, implement


Organize your tests and execute continuously or on-demand. Create logical test sets of application and RPA test cases, then manage how they are executed. Seamless integration with UiPath Orchestrator means you can execute tests directly, on a schedule or via continuous integration triggers.



Understand release status instantly and resolve defects faster.

  • Monitor the quality of RPA workflows and applications by tracking test results in real-time.
  • Get defects instantly sent to your organization’s issue tracking tool with detailed, visual logging, so developers can triage, and fix rapidly.

Challenges with Automation :


Finding the right framework and tool

Finding the right automation tool is a very crucial challenge in automation testing for the success of automation. There are a lot of tools available, both licensed as well as open-source, which makes it difficult to choose. The choice of tool depends upon the kind of application and the extent of automation testing

Effective communication and team collaboration

Lack of communication and collaboration among the team is one of the key challenges in automation testing. Since automation testing requires significant investment and gives long-term ROI (Return On Investment) instead of instant gratification, its success is very much dependent on effective communication among all stakeholders.

Identifying the Test Automation strategy

Without a proper test automation strategy, the efficiency of technology will be lost. This is like a body without a brain. Choosing the right strategy is another key challenge in automation testing that is instrumental in the success of automation and in showing business values.

Challenges with Data Reliance

One of the most challenging aspects of test automation is data management. When the test script is executed, the data must be in a specific state; otherwise, it can cause serious issues in several scenarios

How Valenta can assist with Test Automation Strategy and Implementation :

Our approach
Valenta believes in designing, modernizing, and building mission Critical technology systems which most clients depend on every day. We are a focused, independent company, implementing Valenta’s Business-Unit Prototype, we make sure that strategic requirements are covered, and that the solution is built from end-to-end from a chosen business function.

Here are the three simple steps we take for Test Automation implementations :
