Modern technologies such as automation of user acceptance testing and the machine-learning capabilities of AI have permeated almost every aspect of our lives. Automation of UAT has proven to be very effective in reducing the cost and time of testing, reducing the reliance on testers, and shortening the time to close a feedback loop.
For example, a service robot will typically perform repetitive rote tasks without requiring testers to perform them manually. This is the primary means by which the usefulness of robotics and AI can be realized for both users and testers.
Guide on UAT
UAT is used to detect and eliminate bugs that can affect the end-user experience. A good UAT process will ensure that the latest version of the code meets the quality standards, the code is of high quality and is robust enough, and that any quality issues have been previously detected and fixed. In addition, UAT can help detect edge cases, and be used to uncover implicit assumptions.
User acceptance testing (UAT) is a process that involves testing a product or website with real users to determine if they are happy with the experience. The goal of user acceptance testing is to validate hypotheses about the quality of a product or the effectiveness of a design, helping to ensure that the right people are using the right features at the right times.
User acceptance testing has many benefits for organizations, including the ability to identify bugs earlier in the development cycle and generate hypotheses about the impact of changes. This thesis will provide an overview of user acceptance testing, including background information, common techniques, and useful resources for practitioners.
Benefits of User Acceptance Testing
User acceptance testing has a lot of importance and benefits and some of these are:
- It helps us to keep the cost of maintenance low and it is faster to mend functionality and usage in the early phases.
- It makes sure to provide excellent opportunities to detect and fix all the issues and buggy features. It helps increase software robustness and user experience. Thus, increasing the end-user experience and thus helping in collecting positive feedback.
- Feedback can be incorporated into later software development iterations out of the developers’ field of vision. This provides an end-user vision.
Opkey helps you with the efficient management and increasing the overall efficiency of the system and the entire business or company. With Opkey, you can accelerate your packaged application UAT and achieve 100%test coverage without compromising on scope or quality.
Its no-code testing platform removes the language barrier between humans and computers. This significantly increases the capability to keep automating business processes and accelerated UAT testing cycles. Opkey provides graphical reports, pictures, and debugging logs automatically.
These reports are simple to share and understand. Business process logs can be mined by Opkey’s Test Discovery technology to identify which of your processes actually require testing. It aids in finding where your processes are lacking and offers the best test coverage, guaranteeing that the scope of your UAT testing is appropriate.
