TUTORIAL: Effective Solutions for Enterprise Test Automation (1st half)

Automation can be an effective tool within an organization’s software testing strategy if implemented correctly. Automation is often presented as a silver bullet or magical solution to QA; however, experience and practice has taught the QA community there are pitfalls on the path to automation success. A lack of experience, time, and budget inhibits the viability and long-term sustainability of any such automation rollout.

In this workshop, we’ll learn how to build a robust automation program across an organization to improve application quality, testing efficiency, and lower operational costs. The core components of such a program involve test leadership, planning & estimation, script design, execution, reporting, and metrics. The maturity of an enterprise automation program is a long process that requires buy-in from both key stakeholders and application subject matter experts (SMEs).

Thomas have built out automation programs at three companies, each in a different industry. Regardless of the variety of applications under test or the maturity of the QA practice, the principles a test leader will follow in building an automation program will remain the same.

Learning Outcomes:
*Learn how to integrate automation into the SDLC as an upfront concern
*Streamline the tech stack through regular tooling audits that match the company budget & technical skillet of employees
*Develop end-to-end testing standardization across multiple teams
*Integrate automated validations into continuous integration (unit, integration, functional, etc.)
*Promote environment & data synchronization
*Increase visibility of work with QA project traceability and metrics
