CHOOSING THE RIGHT AUTOMATION TOOLS FOR YOUR TEAM
There are A LOT of automation tools and frameworks available for QA testing, each claiming to be the best at what it does. We all want to ensure that we're using the right tooling for our company or project, but how do we choose? As a former QA consultant, I had to remain "tool agnostic" (not having too many strongly held opinions about specific tools) and to help guide clients to choose the tools that were best for them. When I arrived at WizeHive and began to build the new QA Team, leading this same process was one of my foundational tasks. Based on my experience, in this presentation we will address the questions
How do we choose automation tools? Which tools should we choose — and should it be open-source, subscription-based, or a hybrid approach? If our Team already has automation in place, how do we lead a discussion about the possibility of switching from one framework to another? When would it make sense to make a switch from an existing tool to a new tool?
