Methods such as test automation help meet the dynamic demands of the agile environment by delivering faster and efficient results. Once, we understand which test cases can be automated, we can then proceed with the right approach to test automation that gives effective results. A carefully test automation strategy through appropriate understanding and analysis must be arrived at. Conduct Parallel Testing
 Agile development is all about continuous releases in a number of iterations which is the reason test automation team often miss out on quality objectives.This is why it is important to allocate proper time for testing and start conducting test automation in parallel to development cycles to avoid lags. Conducting parallel testing also will help the team become more productive and respond the requirements quickly, avoiding last minute rushes.
