Test automation is an essential solution for all businesses who need to reduce the time to market of high quality software change.
Implementing a successful test automation solution has often been considered a “dark art”. There are countless tools on the market and a feast of moving parts to challenge even the bravest of QA’s. But don’t worry, that’s what we are here for!
To be agile you need speed of thought and speed of movement to allow you to change direction where necessary. Running large packs of manual tests is time consuming, prone to error, costly and extremely hard to maintain. Test automation has always been an enabler for change and is the cornerstone of any successful agile delivery.
People are a valuable commodity. Their skills and abilities can not easily be duplicated by machines and nor should they. An efficient and effective test automation solution should complement the capability you have in place. This will free people from repetitive and mundane tasks so they can focus on more complex and strategic activities with higher business value.
A suite of well written automated test cases is just the start of the journey. Once tests have been developed you then need to reduce the effort to maintain and manage them. Running them regularly and automatically further maximising your return on investment.
You can only build confidence with time and predicatability. When vital information arrives late and incomplete it’s impossible to make important decisions. Test reports automatically generated by the tests themselves will always arrive on time and in the same consistent format. Automated results can even be integrated into test management solutions and reporting dashboards for real-time information as each and every test case executes.
