Manual Testing is the process of testing software manually for issues that may impact on an end users’ ability to utilise the software for its intended purpose.
The bulk of testing is still done manually. It’s not surprising then, that organisations have low levels of test coverage and throughput.
Using a solution that makes defect capture faster provides more time to increase test coverage. Additionally, the process captured from the manual test feeds and automation tests, further increases coverage with the resulting benefit of shorter time scales. Increased coverage, results in fewer errors, improved quality of applications and increased business satisfaction.
Full automation in software testing is rarely the best solution, and most teams will use manual testing at some stage. While manual testing can give you an accurate way to find bugs and get a realistic picture of how users will use your application, it has many challenges. From user fatigue to testing bottlenecks, there are many reasons why it makes sense to integrate some sort of automation into your testing process.
