Certified QA Professionals
Without a suite of automated tests, developers can become ambivalent to introduce code changes or add new code sequences. This happens because they must invest considerable time to learn desired code behavior before they can gauge whether any modifications will compromise existing functionalities with detrimental effects. It may work great, but it may also open a can of worms — such indecision can stifle badly needed changes.
For example, what if the fill-out form can’t accept a mix of numerical and special characters values? Or the user can’t cancel an online purchase? Automated tests act as a buffer for unforeseen consequences. Instead of spending an exorbitant amount of time figuring out the behavior of the intended code, developers can trust QA professionals to run automated tests that catch defects. This not only saves a lot of time, but it also prevents costly rework that would result if bugs were found at a later project stage.
