Codeless test automation has quite the history, and it's important to know where we've come from in order to know how to best push ahead.
An overview of the evolution of test automation

What elevates codeless platforms to be “next generation”
Technology evolves pretty fast, and test automation right along with it. Frameworks were the industry standard for so long, and now with codeless test automation platforms coming into the market, it’s easy to lose track of how we got here and what we have. What’s more, with all of the software available, how do you know what makes a good test automation tool?
See anything you like there? We’ve got an excerpt for you to pique your interest, too:
“There was a time and a place for each type of testing software when technology like AI, ML, NLP, and RPA was not far advanced enough for codeless automation to even be possible. However, the need for quality at speed drives the development of codeless automation, as that need is one of the top objectives of QA teams. When new technologies and speed/scale requirements collide, that collision point creates codeless automation. Necessity breeds innovation.”
