Why are We Doing This?
According to the World Quality Report 2019-20, the level of automation accounts for a mere 14-18% of the total testing practices. Well, the same survey revealed that 61% of respondents have difficulties automating their QA and testing efforts. This is self-evident that automation is the under-exploited part of the testing community. The major reason is people don’t know how to get started with test automation.
The purpose of this survey is to better understand the automation testing landscape. At the same time, offering objective evidence on the most difficult challenges and faced by QA professionals. Such evidence will serve as an extra basis for understanding the gap in implementing testing automation. Plus, help people to get started with the first step i.e. selecting the right software test automation tool.
Share your valuable experience and help us and get your copy of survey results along with A CTO’s Guide to Software Test Automation Tools.
