Avoiding the Pitfalls of Test Automation
Test automation has the potential to speed up release cycles, increase coverage, and ultimately provide greater confidence in the quality of the software being released. However, software test automation can be a costly investment with low returns if not properly executed.
Most test automation issues become apparent only after the volume test cases scale beyond a few hundred. Up to this threshold, it’s fairly easy to
manage automation when the system under test changes. When automating many hundreds or thousands of tests, however, unforeseen issues will often begin to erode the gains from test automation.
This paper outlines the top challenges that are not immediately obvious when initially implementing test automation, and provides steps that can be taken to avoid the pitfalls or take corrective action.
