Agile Software development process is undoubtedly the best practice in a website or mobile application testing process. The process involves testing particular software for its requirements and specifications since the beginning of its development process.
But, with the pros, comes its cons. In this blog, we will have a look on various risks or challenges that can be a part of the automated Agile Software development process.
- When testing is automated, there are many chances of untrustworthy results such as false positives or even testing failures. In such cases the QA testers should focus and aim towards resolving the problems related to brittle tests.
- Automated mobile application testing solutions are comparatively expensive to build and require a higher maintenance cost.
- They offer higher confidence level to the clients, but are slower to run.
- The Quality assured Testers are required to have proper training to use automated UI tools used in agile software development. Otherwise this can lead to reduced productivity.
- Manually executing automated tests can lead to irregular running which can cause failure of tests.
- Automation testing needs proper planning before the executing the testing. Failure of which can lead to redoing whole testing process.
- Its not enough to be entirely dependent on the automated testing techniques. To get the best results, the testing process should be a proper combination of manual exploratory and automated tests.
- Continuous Integration is necessary to avoid any failing of test in website or mobile cloud testing services.
- For effective outcomes, the team members involved in the development and the testing team needs to have strong communication, cooperation and approachable throughout the agile development process.
- Testers are required to properly set up and tear down the automated and manual test procedures, which are usually missed by the team.
- To avoid conducting useless tests, productivity metrics should be maintained. This gives you the data of number of tests cases created and run each day.
