Software Test Automation
A Fast Start to Automated Testing
Test automation has the potential to radically improve productivity and reduce the reliance on manual testing.
However, even though software test automation has been available for over a quarter of a century, the practice still has many skeptics, and the biggest barrier to adoption remains the level of maintenance required to sustain it. Achieving just a moderate level of automation coverage requires considerable investment of budget and resource. With increasing software development complexity and more and more IT departments taking on an agile approach, traditional test automation has become too cumbersome for most to sustain.
Achieving Test Automation Quickly
Now it would be foolish to dispose of the entire concept of automation purely based on what came before. What would be more pragmatic would be to recalibrate our expectations and remind ourselves of excellent potential benefits from test automation, if only the capabilities were delivered in a form usable by all.
By freeing automation from the burden of a script based on code, we can begin to imagine a solution that could be used by subject matter experts and not limited to frustrated developers, a solution that could adapt to changes in the application under test, an intelligent solution that inherently understood the application under test, removing the need to develop logic in addition to the validation itself.
The exciting thing is that modern automation goes a surprisingly long way towards addressing these needs.
