Intelligent Software Test Automation: A Proven Roadmap for Business Success

As we settle into this new year, there is a deluge of articles discussing which technology trends will dominate in 2023 and beyond. However, rather than speculating, let’s look at one cutting-edge innovation already proving itself: intelligent automation. As organizations look to optimize the digital experience and deliver operational improvements, it’s now a business priority in order to thrive.

So why is intelligent software automation so vital? In a digital first world, software is everywhere and determines business success. As a result, organizations are striving to accelerate digital transformation; however, they need a way to test the complex web of interconnected solutions and systems. Relying on legacy test automation to evaluate code and software fails to meet the needs of today’s users and organizations. It’s a costly, time-consuming approach that can’t keep up with the sheer scale and scope of testing required in our complex interconnected digital world. This has made intelligent automation a business imperative. Research from Deloitte found that 94% of business leaders now recognize that AI is critical to success.

Intelligent Automation a Business Imperative

AI makes the process of designing, developing, and deploying software faster, better, and cheaper. Rather than just checking whether the technology works, testing becomes a strategic resource for continuously optimizing the user experience and tracking how technical factors relate to business outcomes.

In addition to delivering engaging experiences, organizations can do more with less and maximize their existing resources. AI-powered tools enable business analysts, software coders and testers to be more productive and effective, allowing them to produce higher-quality software faster and at a lower cost. With the current economic uncertainty, organizations ignore these benefits at their peril.

AI-driven test automation is a proven technology innovation providing businesses with greater agility and scalability to support their digital and DevOps transformations. As organizations strive to improve software quality, AI is one new year's resolution every organization should embrace with open arms.
