automated testing as part of modern software development

Keren Yuval, Head of Digital Solutions & Helen Bally, Head of Quality Assurance & Testing · April 08, 2024

helping our clients achieve quality at speed

“At one time (long, long ago), software was just a way of getting things done. It was nothing more than the convenience of using a calculator instead of doing your sums by hand. Those days are gone, however. The average enterprise software landscape contains 52 interconnected systems. The average person’s software landscape is far vaster—as the saying goes, ‘no man is an island’—and the bridges between ourselves and the world are increasingly built with software.”

At Itecor, we understand the critical role that test automation plays in ensuring the success of software projects. Through our expert test automation services, we empower organizations to achieve higher levels of efficiency, productivity, and confidence in their software delivery pipelines.

the imperative for automated testing

Automated testing is a cornerstone of modern software development, particularly for projects with the complexity and scope of digital solutions. The need for rapid testing is driven by several factors:

  • Speed and Efficience
    Automated tests can be run quickly and repeatedly. This allows for more frequent testing cycles, ensuring that new features and updates can be deployed at a faster pace without compromising quality.
  • Accuracy and Reliability
    Manual testing is susceptible to human error particularly when repeated multiple times, whereas automated tests perform the same steps every time. This consistency can help in identifying defects and issues that might be overlooked during manual testing
  • Cost Effectiveness
    While setting up automated testing requires investment, it can significantly reduce the cost of testing over time. Automated tests can be executed multiple times with minimal effort, making it a viable choice for projects with long-term development horizons
    • Comprehensive Coverage
      Test automation enables the execution of a large number of tests in parallel, covering scenarios and use cases that might be impractical to test manually. This coverage is essential for ensuring the software solution works as intended across all intended devices and platforms.
    • Continuous Integration and Delivery (CI/CD)
      Automated testing is a key component of CI/CD pipelines, allowing for the continuous and automated delivery of updates. This integration ensures that any changes made to the codebase are immediately tested.

technology / framework

In implementing our quality assurance strategy, our QA neteam employs industry-best practice architecture which is then tailored to meet the demands of the client and project. This creates a robust foundation for End-to-End (E2E) testing, ensuring comprehensive coverage across different devices and platforms.

By systematically validating expected outcomes and behaviours, a framework ensures that critical functionalities are thoroughly tested, reducing the chance of bugs in production.

assessing performance risks

Our QA Team assesses the risks for performance and develops a strategy for mitigation with our clients. Together, we look at questions such as page response time, user journey, intended use, volumes, scalability. For responsiveness, page speed and device testing we typically incorporate measures into the automated test framework. Where high volumes and scalability are the risk, we organise performance testing of the system which is essential to ensure the implemented architecture can handle the high loads.
This testing evaluates the system’s responsiveness, stability, and scalability under various load conditions. By identifying bottlenecks and areas for optimization, we can implement targeted improvements to ensure that the systems remain robust and efficient.


  • The team is staffed with dedicated experts in test engineering and is able to scale up or down according to client needs.
  • We are most proud of the longevity of our client relationships, where we have extended our service scope beyond the original deliverables. This happens when the team is well integrated with the client as a one-team approach.  


The integration of automated and performance testing into the SDLC is not just a best practice, it is a necessity for developing mission critical applications. Our nearshore QA services play a pivotal role in this process, leveraging the advantages of test automation to ensure the speed, efficiency, stability, and reliability of the developed solutions.
Our commitment to quality and innovation is unwavering, ensuring the systems we support are ready to contribute to the success of our customers
