BEYOND QA AUTOMATION
QA automation needs to expand its reach in such a fast-paced world, not all things can be fixed in the sprint or cycle that they are found in. To accomplish this, most people talk about some common buzz words such as “Shift Left” or "test early and often". Which just means test sooner. Other people talk about CI/CD which should always be implemented where possible. But there is more you can do, especially if you work with a lot of data coming from different sources or content. We need to automate the entry of data and validate the content even before it gets into the system.
