For businesses, a rising need in the field of automation, has been to develop and deliver robust frameworks that have an embedded ability to write and run automated test scripts requiring minimal efforts. With a low-code and no-code test automation framework, even people with low expertise in coding, scripting and executing scripts, can do so with such a framework involving bare minimum coding. This does not just play a critical role for developers, who work on platforms demanding minimal coding for unit tests, but is seeping into software test automation also, benefiting engineers who are functional testers but don't possess the required coding skills.

Low-Code and No-Code Test Automation Approach

With constant advancements and innovations in the field of test automation, keeping up with the pace becomes a challenge for businesses. But this could be achieved without requiring much effort and technical resources with the help of a low-code/no-code automation framework. Embracing an agile methodology, low-code and no-code app development and test automation make reusable components readily available for more useful integrations through certain solutions like dragging-and-dropping, visual development, etc. Scalability can be effectively achieved and faster time-to-market can be ensured with the drag and drop and Artificial Intelligence features of modern test automation software.

Your development and testing teams might face certain challenges in validating proper integration and security feature in their applications. Those challenges can be mitigated with a streamlined adaptation of reusable components for developers and testers to create and run their test scripts. With low-code and no-code platforms, developers can exploit the exposed APIs and integrations. In a similar fashion, software testers can also enjoy such capabilities by using these exposed APIs for their test automation suites. A seamless process for effective test automation can thus be achieved by low-code and no-code solutions for businesses having teams with minimal IT expertise.

Stages of Test Automation Life Cycle

A well-structured test automation life cycle comprises a multi-stage process that supports the activities required to deploy an automated test tool, develop and run test cases, build test designs, create and handle test data and environment.

Aligned Benefits of Low-Code/No-Code Test Automation

Low-code and no-code test automation has completely transformed the entire realm of automation testing services. Here are some of the major benefits organizations get from low-code/no-code test automation:

Efficiency: Software test automation with low-code or no-code framework ensures utmost efficiency in testing. With such frameworks, testing does not just become automated but more agile. People with minimal technical expertise like business analysts can also use such frameworks with a higher level of efficiency.

Faster time to market: With an efficient cycle, the time to market gets accelerated simultaneously. An application can reach its audience in less time with the amalgamation of agility and efficiency of low-code/no-code test automation.

BDD framework: With low-code/no-code test automation, a Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) framework can do wonders wherein, an understandable language like English can help non-technical users to use 'Apple', for example, for writing and implementing test automation scripts.

Scalability: As low-code/no-code test automation tools help accelerate processes, they also help businesses in scaling the scope of testing and automation by deploying the ready-to-use elements within their test automation suites. Businesses can also use cloud platforms for augmented scalability.

Reduced Maintenance Cost & Efforts: The unique approaches around low or no-code test automation are also making 'self-healing' of scripts a reality. This, in turn, helps reduce the overall automation maintenance efforts, thereby saving cost and time.

Improved collaboration: A key benefit of embracing a low-code or no-code test automation framework is that it drives effective collaboration between the QA team and the employees with minimal technical expertise.
