To ensure software readiness to support business demands, and to meet tight release deadlines, test automation has been widely adopted as a method to save money, eliminate the complexities of manual testing, and release better products faster. Unfortunately, the implementation of test automation can be a costly endeavor if it is not implemented using the correct strategy.

In this session we will explore the best practices to implement a best-in-class test automation strategy.

  • Best practices to define test automation goals
  • How to make effective use of the tools and resources you have
  • What a modern test automation strategy looks like and how to implement it
