Automation is not automatic. It involves the organization of thoughts and understanding of architecture.
For those teams that are considering a major expansion of their automated environment, it may be necessary to step back, think more carefully about the goals of testing automation, and look more closely at what should be automated.
“Everything needs to be Automation”, this is an overrated quote, which is way away from the truth.
Everyone needs to understand the scope, time, resources, knowledge, and most important ROI of the automation code which is being written.
Creating, configuring, and running scalable automated tests won’t succeed without a thoughtful, methodical approach.
Takeaways from the topic:
- The primary takeaway from here is what exactly should be the thought process when anyone starts their automation journey and how they actually can see its future.
- Writing the tests is only half work done. Maintaining what is been written is the most important part of this journey.
