Understanding The Business Value of Test Automation – Smaller, Faster, Smarter

Presented at INFOCUS Envision 2021

Session Id: 101010

In today’s competitive landscape companies need to evolve to become digital enterprises and in turn modernize their systems to reflect these changes. Part of that evolution is the way in which organizations’ consume enterprise software, moving from major, disruptive upgrade projects, to the more widespread adoption of smaller, more frequent software updates.

Testing is an essential component of any update project. In fact, testing activities can account for up to 60% of the total effort required, and this can be a huge burden on scarce resources. Customers test to eliminate risk, so a robust testing regime should include both functional elements, to ensure the system is producing the desired outcomes and to see how the updated system operates under pressure. Given that manual testing requires time and effort, test automation can provide significant advantages, helping you to run smaller, faster and smarter projects.

Objectives

In this presentation we will outline how testing smarter can enable innovation by reducing the time and effort of functional testing freeing up valuable resources.

We will demonstrate how Business Analysts and Super-users can set up their own test scenarios quickly and easily, taking ownership of their test automation.

Learn how testers can do more for less and projects can be delivered faster, helping to increase operational efficiencies.
