Main message: • In large scale staging environments wasted time in the form of errored, blocked and not run tests must be reduce dramatically. • Automation is a mean to an end, and we should always strive for maximum utilization of our setups. • A change in the state of mind is needed. Presentation description: • The presentation describes the effort done since mid-2016 till today- from proof of concept, evaluation, taking corrective actions to introduction as mandatory process in our environment. • The presentation includes sharing results in form of graphs, meters we defined, successes, failures and lesson learned, Outline: • Introduction of our environment and activity time frame o Physical scale, time frames and SLAs, content o What was done during proof of concept phase, what we did right and wrong, what were the corrective actions we took and with whom. • Meters we defined o %NRF and TTI • Issues categories and classification o Test automation. o Platform instability. o Automation’s infrastructure. o Human errors. o Peripheral equipment. o Miscellanies- issues that doesn’t fit any of the above. • Drill down into each category demonstrating impact over time using data gathered throughout our activity. • Sharing our conclusions, final results, areas we met our goals and What attendees will learn: • Large scale environment owners can learn how to increasing efficiency, setup utilization, engineering manual work all resulting in save the organization time while keep delivering results. • How to drive a change in the organization, in relate to the way we grasp our “automation”. Lecture is based on an article I’ve recently published in Israeli Testing World Magazine- (pages 16- 18)
