A codeless or no-code solution mitigates the need for manual programming in application development. Instead of writing lines of code, users can develop applications through simple point-and-click on specific components that can be arranged into logical sequences to create functional and feature-rich applications. Goldman Sachs adopted the culture of no code based software for their operations partnering with a startup

Codeless software development accelerates and democratizes application development. Power users can build digital applications to solve critical business problems and automate tasks much faster to increase productivity.

The Future road for Digital Quality Engineering

The future of coding in test automation will be no coding at all. For accelerating digital transformation, banking businesses need the forces of codeless test automation strategy. RPA (robotic process automation) led intelligent test automation possibilities offered by LEAPWORK, is one of the closest examples for codeless test automation platforms. The current pandemic crisis, has witnessed a significant number of contact less approaches for business innovation, and codeless test automation adds up to this elite list. Maveric’s Intelligent Quality Engineering (IQe) platform is founded on the pillars of no-code or low code test automation. IQe accelerates and streamlines digital quality engineering (web, mobile, API’s, UI/UX and more) through contextual interventions and intelligent approaches.

Now, let us look at the top 5 advantages of codeless test automation

  • Shrinks Testing cycle time
    Speed is the name of the game in today’s software testing world. Long gone are the days when testing use to happen at the end of an SDLC. Testing earlier and more frequently, prevents defects at an early stage. With codeless test automation, repetitive and mundane tasks can be eliminated. Testing teams need not invest mammoth efforts on writing codes, instead they can focus on functional validations and enhance the overall user experience.
  • Improves Testing Productivity
    Since codeless testing solutions are easier and faster to deploy, QE/QA teams can be freed to focus more on strategic priorities. Introducing these smarter platforms across the SDLC stages is a breeze in comparison to traditional models. Test efficiency and productivity can touch newer heights. For example, 500 API’s can be tested in less than 2 to 3 minutes. Therefore, speed with scale is being redefined without compromising on the code quality.
  • Boost Continuous Integration and Continuous Development (CI/CD) pipelines
    In the Banking 4.0 revolution, Agile and dev-ops led delivery have taken a substantial edge. Smarter pathways are offered by codeless test automation platforms for driving code level changes, which can be seamlessly integrated at a continuous level for continuous development. They bring a significant momentum in the CI/CD pipelines and maintain the discipline of continuous quality, across the shift-left and shift-right stages of the SDLC. Furthermore, the Dev and QA teams can establish a strong and close collaboration for faster software releases.
  • A Plug and Play solution for everyone
    You need not be a technically qualified testing professional to run codeless test automation solution. This means, banking organizations have all the liberty to engage any business or functional or technical user for user acceptance testing. These platforms do not require any prior programming knowledge. Thus, making it easy for any user to configure, manage and run multiple tests. This way, the burden of must-have programming skills for executing test automation is completely eliminated.
  • Reduces costs and dependency burdens
    Dependencies are drastically reduced with codeless test automation. For example, the application development team doesn’t have to spend mammoth efforts on building UI level test cases, when the testing teams can easily configure them. Additionally, the cost associated with Testing are also considerably reduced when you remove manual and cumbersome levels of test processes.

In summary, the future for codeless innovation, is quite clear.

As demands soar for digital appetite, and the paucity of available software developers’ hits home, the classic problem in today’s application development (Limited IT departments Vs. Business demands) will be resolved by the codeless solution.

Codeless test automation solutions will drive rapid application development. They will play the leading anchor in re-energizing continuous quality engineering pipelines to accelerate your next digital transformation.
