Automated testing is the process of using technology to execute tests throughout the software testing lifecycle. Automated testing uses a variety of tests to deliver quality software faster.
New application architectures, such as composite/hybrid applications, cloud computing networks, and mobile platforms introduce enormous challenges to today’s functional testing teams, many of which are not equipped with the tools and knowledge to rise to the challenges. Iterative development processes such as Agile bring the need to test modern applications sooner, faster, and with less information available about the application; this requires an unprecedented level of cooperation among development, testing, and operations. Complex apps, increased platform coverage, and faster releases have led to a dire need for more investment in both manual and automated testing practices.
More than 80 percent of today's cyber attacks target applications. An integrated, holistic, approach to application security is crucial for agile development. Businesses need to systematically test and scan all applications, whether they're developed in-house, by a third-party, open source or off-the-shelf.
