Just five years ago, Test Automation was still perceived as a luxury. An expensive solution that might save time and money in the long run, but only if the business case was believable and the people implementing it knew what they were doing.
Now, there are not enough skills on the market to meet the demand for Test Automation as every organisation embraces the latest delivery methodologies and tools.
If you have implemented Test Automation in your organisation, you clearly see the bigger picture. But are you getting the best value from your investment?
Value-added benefits of Test Automation
In July we looked at six key value-added benefits of Test Automation, including:
1. Risk Reduction
2. Quality Improvements
3. Cost Reduction
4. Speed to Market
5. Knowledge Retention
6. Early Defect Detection
These are the benefits you should be seeing from your Test Automation Solution. If you want to be certain your solution is delivering then it’s time for a Spike95 health check to identify where any problems lie and how to solve them.
The Spike95 Test Automation Health Check
Just like a Performance Testing Health Check, a Test Automation Health Check gives your business and teams the chance to move forward quickly and increase operational efficiency.
We have conducted reviews for clients in many different sectors and implemented a wide range of different strategies and improvement plans. One of our core principles is to bring our expertise to bear for our clients and make them a success. Our approach to automation assessments has been refined over the years as our understanding has increased of what causes problems and what makes automation projects likely to fail. We speak to people in different areas of your business to get their view of the capability and why they believe it does not perform to requirements. Detailed questionnaires ensure data is captured consistently, allowing us to compare responses from different individuals, we create heatmaps of the potential areas for improvement. We drill down through multiple levels, right into the automation code itself, to fully understand the mechanics of what has been developed.
