In our most recent installments, we’ve talked about the efficiency of test automation, agile testing, and some best practices for test teams. We’ve covered the difficulties of catering to multiple platforms and browsers, and have mentioned that the modern market is ever-changing and filled with obstacles that must be surpassed to stay afloat among the competition. There are many testing tools available out there today, and one of the most critical steps towards successful application testing is choosing the right one to get the job done.
Here, we can continue our car analogy. Just like building a custom car requires focusing on each separate part and how it will benefit the whole, test automation teams must also work together to determine what aspects of a testing tool will help them reach their goals in the most efficient way possible. Some companies may struggle with this, as there is a false rumor going around: that test automation is a low-maintenance cure-all for any development process.
