Automated testing employs tools and scripts to execute tests, comparing outcomes with expected results. It utilizes automation frameworks and scripts to perform repetitive tasks and validate product functionality, resulting in faster software delivery cycles and higher quality.

It allows us to test large-scale systems and manage multiple cases concurrently, ensuring cross-platform compatibility. Automation ensures extensive coverage, especially in CI/CD setups, and spans various types of testing.
