The Future of Automation - Explained!

It seems that discussions around test automation are often stuck in the same cycle: complaints regarding QA & testing duration leads to demands for automation. This has led to individual heroics, hiring of consultants, vendor demos, or all of the above. Investments are made in services, tools, and time, but in the end, staffing levels are increased, spending has continued to climb and the productivity promises have not been met.

The shift to DevOps, much like to move to Web from Client-server, has pushed new demands on QA and reignited the calls for automation. Multi week automation cycles now must be compressed into hours in order to achieve the desired build cycles. Yet, lest we forget, what may only take minutes to code, can take weeks to test. Where once testing could reasonably be assumed as a percentage of development effort, this is clearly no longer the case.

As such, QA needs to be smarter and better aligned with the critical business drivers. Automaton solutions must get faster and cheaper. To that end, how do we measure the effectiveness and build a solid business case for Automation moving forward?

Join QA Consultants for a transparent look at the challenges facing the investment in test automation, best practices in building this discipline and solidifying an ROI that makes sense.
