Industries are looking forward to various emerging process transformation and automation technologies. RPA and BPA are essential tech tools used to increase the productivity and efficiency of businesses. Both RPA and BPA help in streamlining the business processes and increasing the revenue. 

RPA helps in increasing the efficiency and productivity by automating the human task, with the help of a robot or a machine, to get the desired output, without human involvement. It has gained immense reputation over the years and is in high demand due to its promising advantages in all the industry domains. BPA is an extension of BPM, i.e., Business Process Management, which is used to examine, analyze, and streamline business systems. It helps in overall decision making, improving efficiency and productivity, with cost-reduction and enhanced value of the end product.

Automation Testing Improves Business Results In Three Ways:

Shorter Time To Market, Increased Test Efficiency And Increased Test Effectiveness.

Testing efficiency is the average number of test cases you can run for an hour of tester time. High efficiency of testing reduces product development time and costs.

Testing effectiveness is rate at which testing reveals bugs before your application are released in the market. Increased effectiveness reduces the costs through a better product.

Application must be tested before release and reducing your time to market for benefits. Manual testing replacing with automated testing can cut time from elapsed testing time.

ROI Formula:

The ROI for test automation can move into positive zone depending upon the number of regression cycles required for the lifetime of the application.

ROI for test automation can be simply calculated by the below formula:

Return of Investment(ROI) = (Manual testing cost — Automation cost)/Automation cost
