ACCELQ is used to automate the Web, Desktop, API, Mainframe, Salesforce, MS Dynamics, and ERP applications. It operates using a natural English coding method to automate the entire application. Also, it provides a Universe view of the application using an AI engine and element finding tree structure. We can also implement Data-driven testing without any coding.

Difference between other automation tools vs. ACCELQ

Automation tools need more coding and maintenance support, so we can have a chance to miss a few functional behaviors of the application testing, but ACCELQ provides a predefined methodology to automate the application and Self-healing capability to maintain existing automation. No programming skill is required.

Integrate with different Apps and tools

● Jira

● Browser Stack

● Jenkins

● Microsoft Azure etc.

Let’s discuss more on ACCELQ

I have not seen any better tool for automating Web UIs. ‌The auto-healing and element selection based on AI are both fantastic. ‌The framework requires no ‌maintenance. ‌SMEs transformed into automation experts. ‌The ACCELQ product is continuously improved with new feature sets based on market‌ ‌needs. ‌In addition, customized solutions are provided for some of our enhancement requests.

Quick start onboarding services are beneficial to kick-start automation and engage existing members. Using ACCELQ, we can Integrate requirements and defects. For those with no automation skills, ACCELQ is the BEST tool to start with. ‌It requires no coding knowledge. This is an easy-to-use command-simple English Test Data generation tool. Functional testers find it very easy to upskill themselves with this tool and contribute to automation.

Application blueprints are provided through ACCELQ Universe, which gives testing professionals good visibility of the linkages in the automation suite. Features such as finding elements in a webpage, creating Context, and running pipelines efficiently with actions, Context, and scenarios are commendable. All the automation testers facing one big problem is automating the accessibility testing part, but ACCELQ helps automate and test the Accessibility.

Difficulties of Automation Testing:

  1. Creation:

Organizations not only have to figure out how to create their test automation but identify what things to automate because not everything can be automated; organizations need ways, practices, and technologies to help them with the creation process. So people are looking for a tool that can support all the required features in one because some tools support only specific areas like API or UI, or Mobile. So the tool needs to cover all the areas.

2. Maintenance :

As‌ ‌soon‌ ‌as‌‌ ‌‌the‌‌ ‌‌tests‌‌ ‌‌‌are‌‌‌ ‌‌‌created, people have to consider how they are going to move forward with an Agile DevOps deployment. They need to maintain the test framework, make sure it is stable, and be able to make updates.

3. Continuous :

One of the most prominent challenges organizations face when trying to accelerate beyond their initial test automation practice is being able to run the tests any time, anywhere.

4. Lack of Automated Testing Expertise :

Resources need experience with some coding language and respective skills.

5. Automated Testing Infrastructure

One of the Infra team’s biggest problems is to set up the Infrastructure for Automation, like if we run the automation on servers.

ACCELQ Solving all the Pain Points:

  1. It’s all in one package so that the business can cover all the areas of test like Functional, API, UI, Mobile
  2. It integrates with all the CI tools (Jenkins/ Azure/etc.)
  3. Once we register to ACCELQ, we will get the cloud login, so from anywhere, we can access our automation assets and run and see our application’s current status.
  4. No prior experience need to use ACCELQ because we are automating using the Natural English language
  5. ACCELQ provides all the Infrastructure in a single package, so the IT team provides access to one service. Also, testers do not have a problem with any external library limitations.
