First Steps Towards Successful Autonomous Software Testing

First Steps Towards Successful Autonomous Software Testing

Most organizations spend thousands of hours developing application QA tests, meticulously breaking down and debugging the application from release to release. This massive amount of time spent on manual testing yields very little result, slowing development and lowering productivity. You can address the issue of lost productivity by injecting test automation scripts into each stage of the test cycle, giving testing engineers more time and space to do more complex tasks.

Progress toward autonomous software testing, stage by stage

Autonomous testing is the process of progressing from manual to assisted to fully autonomous testing. At each of these stages, autonomous testing tools improve the QA team’s ability to rely on automation for faster software development.

Initially, more manual test creation, manual execution, and routine maintenance are required. To achieve autonomous testing, it will be gradually replaced by integrating automation and leveraging automation tools. Let’s look at each of these stages individually.

1. Practical Testing

Manual tests incorporate human intelligence and function into application development that a machine cannot produce from the start.

2. Assisted Testing

Because it establishes your test automation framework, this stage is critical in the entire transformation process. During this stage, the necessary tools and technology to support the automation processes are put in place.

3. Partially Automated Testing

At this point, the automation tool takes over a large portion of the testing pipeline. The majority of the tasks that were tested for automation were successful and are now operational.

4. Fully Automation

Partial automation paves the way for full automation of the test pipeline by dealing with more complex testing procedures. This environment’s testers are automating tests in parallel and distributed environments.

5. Unassisted Automation 

The goal of autonomous testing is to free the test engine from constant monitoring and test tweaking in response to changes in the test environment or scenario. As a result, the QA team is now implementing machine learning to help the automation tool determine how to navigate changes and maintain the tests.

6. Autonomous Testing

Through the effective use of platforms and tools, the goal of all previous efforts, autonomous testing, is realised. The overall testing effort should result in a system that allows test engineers to experiment with new aspects of the project while the existing system runs smoothly.


Reduce testing costs and faster release cycles – AI-powered QE services are currently among the most in demand in the industry. The underlying technology for driverless vehicles is being driven by end-to-end automation via reusable frameworks and AI-led functional and security tests, resulting in seamless software integration and improved safety.
