Test Automation Assessment and Implementation
For those in startups or small companies with a simple or single product, an ad hoc QA process with manual functional testing and regression testing probably works just fine (for the time being). Even for some large corporations or ISV’s, automation testing may be kept on the backburner indefinitely. However, as a business grows, software development of more products for customers, and/or the expansion of features and functions within the existing products, grows. At some point, the importance of delivering high-quality software and the need for incorporating automation within QA becomes today’s to-do item!
It can be challenging to kick start a software test automation program. Oftentimes, companies start by choosing an automated software testing tool without first thinking about an automated testing strategy and how it fits into the organization AND their software development and QA process. Automated software testing can often be expensive and difficult, especially given the array of tools and the expertise needed to master them. Any automated testing program will require some level of upfront investment in time, resources, and effort. So when is the appropriate time to start automated testing?
