Best Test Automation Software

Test automation software controls the execution of software tests. It simplifies the testing process for software engineers by using the minimum set of scripts, along with saving their teams time and money. These tools, typically utilized by large enterprises, allow teams to run pre-scripted tests on their applications before they are pushed into production. After running trials, these tools can report the outcomes and compare results to previous tests. Test automation software can run tests repeatedly and at any point throughout the day. This function is critical to continuous delivery and continuous testing.

To qualify for inclusion in the Test Automation Software category, a product must:

  • Execute software tests
  • Run outcome reports
  • Compare outcomes to previous tests
  • Carry out tests multiple times a day
