Automation is not the next big thing. It’s the future that is now. It is easy to understand why. Technology does the job quicker and often better while freeing us for more creative tasks. When it comes to software testing that helps us get rid of nasty bugs and make users happy, the benefits of QA automation are pretty much the same. A higher speed, reduced costs, and fewer errors. However, many are slow to adopt.
According to a recent survey, 25% of testers from across industries are just starting on their test automation journey or have no automation whatsoever. Common automation testing challenges range from a lack of skilled resources or knowledge to identify the right methods and tools to changing software requirements.
Meanwhile, testing remains the number one reason for delays in software delivery cycles.
If you are thinking about test automation as well but don’t know how to get started, stay tuned. Tips and practical examples are below.

Like other senior-level IT executives from around the world, our clients also enjoy both reduced test cycle time and reduced test costs from best automation testing practices.

Test automation is happening, but for many companies, it is still not at the level it should be. However, with users’ zero tolerance to bugs and increasing pressure on teams to speed up release cycles for fixes and updates, automation testing can be the only way out of this challenge. Technologies unlock hidden value and make you fly. All you need is the right strategy and the right skills to set up test automation best practices. Machines will do the rest.
