Conclusion:

In today’s DevOps/Agile world, full automation in each sprint cycle is not always easy to accomplish. Testing teams are always challenged to squeeze the testing window in order to keep up to the code delivery schedules. Testing tools that need lengthy coding/scripting for end-to-end automation are losing popularity due to the above challenges. In the rescue, the modern AI powered script-less tools are becoming the ultimate choice for QA professionals. We are entering an era of “Hyper-automation” and ultimately will hit an era of “Neuromorphic Computing” in just next couple of years and the modern AI powered script-less tools will positively help us to get there.
