Testing Platform Comparison
Test Automation vs Test Orchestration
Test orchestration acts as a top-level conductor, much like in an orchestra where every part is precisely coordinated for a single vision.
On the other hand, test automation is the actual tests which check software for expected results.
Test orchestration coordinates these test automations within a single pipeline, allowing for a holistic approach to testing that result in several key benefits:
- Execute many different kinds of test automations, frameworks, and platforms all in a coordinated sequence for true end-to-end testing.
- Test automations can be executed in a simple linear order or in more complex sequences with parallel branching, conditional branching and loops.
- Pass data between tests.
- One unified view of the ‘big picture’ for more transparency.
Unlike CI pipelines that seldom change, testing pipelines change very often with almost every sprint. This is why a low-code solution is perfect for test orchestration pipelines where building and changing workflows is fast, easy and can be done by any engineer.
