Software Test Automation Briefing

2 hours

Test automation is a critical part of any modern software development. Within WWT, we use it extensively from automated unit testing, integration testing, end-to-end testing, performance testing, load test — and the list goes on. Test automation is not easy, especially if your organization isn’t prepared for it. Whether executed in the cloud or on-premise, it takes a robust infrastructure and tooling capability along with the people who know how to wield it.

Success in test automation requires a clear strategic and architectural vision that drives desired business outcomes. This strategy must address an iterative approach to defining governance, managing data, creating test infrastructure and defining tests. It is executed by a multidisciplinary team composed of Software Engineering, QA, Infrastructure and DevOps. A successful test automation program also requires smart capital investments in the right infrastructure and tools to effectively and efficiently reach these business outcomes.

In this briefing, we will explore with you the landscape of test automation and what is needed to be successful based on our 20+ years of hands-on experience at the leading edge of software development.
