Audit Your Automation: Key to a Successful Test Strategy
Auditing the test automation suite reduces the cost of maintenance and ensures that the key areas are prioritized which in turns improves the quality of the product. “Automating a user story is part of Definition of Done”. “Automate the complete backlog”. “Regression tests should be automated”.

This is because of the one fundamental myth: Automate Everything. Safiya Bano will walk you through the cost of adding vs maintaining the automation tests and how to avoid falling into an abyss of redundant fixes. She will go through the process of identifying the right set of tests to automate and the strategies to follow to reduce the cost of maintenance.
