Oracle Test Automation Tools
Posted On: 17 February 2024

As cloud migration gains acceptance, organizations seek better testing strategies for their SaaS-based solutions. With the frequent releases and updates of cloud-based applications, business enterprises look to cope with the requirements of faster and improved testing methods. This demands a high turnaround time for completing the software testing process.

In recent years, test automation has provided a viable solution for improving software quality and efficiency. With the advent of the Oracle Cloud, business enterprises are evaluating how Oracle Test Automation can provide end-to-end testing for their cloud infrastructure. More enterprises look to leverage the capabilities of the Oracle Cloud. For this transition, they need a reliable test automation tool to reduce the turnaround time and ensure continuous delivery.

The good part is there are multiple Oracle Test Automation tools available today. We shall look at three of these tools, namely, Selenium, OATS, and ACCELQ. Which of these three automation tools are best suited for organizations?
