Test Smarter, Not Harder: Scaling Test Automation with API and Visual Testing

Is your test automation strategy keeping up with the increasing pace of delivery your development teams need? Daily or even hourly deployments are becoming the new normal, as companies strive to deliver the delightful digital experiences their customers have come to expect. And to meet those high expectations, your team needs the combined power of quality and speed to deploy better apps, faster.

Automated UI testing provides a good baseline, covering front-end functionality. But without additional testing tools in your SDLC toolkit, bugs will inevitably slip through the cracks, slowing down your development cycle, adding to your backlog, and ultimately disappointing your users.

The addition of API and Visual testing significantly improves coverage, scalability, and visibility. This helps teams increase regression testing with existing IT resources and accelerate functional, business logic, and integration test automation - and frees engineers to focus on innovation and quality at speed.

In this webinar, Sauce Labs Chief Customer Officer Matt Wyman discuss the need for quality at speed in today's digital-first world, and explore current trends in test automation. Sauce experts then provide a deeper dive into the use cases and benefits of both API testing and visual testing, and show how you can easily integrate these solutions to scale your test automation.

Key takeaways:

  • How to automate the creation of UI, API, and Visual tests to accelerate a path to scalable test automation

  • How adding visual testing can improve functional tests by providing more coverage with less code

  • How API testing increases test visibility and scalability, increasing developer and release confidence

  • How to implement API testing and Sauce Visual as a current Sauce user
