As you can see with ZAPTEST used by just one engineer Execs will increase test automation ROI 3 times (i.e. $16,800 vs. $50,400)!
Software test automation is an expensive initiative that involves specific skills and technologies that result in high investments in the tools and man-hours. Many organizations are reluctant to invest, due to lack of experience, bad past experience, and/or more often lack of measured ROI of test automation processes. Many IT executives [Execs] prefer to use low cost or open source test automation technologies [Tools] and are engaging consultants, who are promising these Execs test automation heaven at the lesser investment.
In many cases test automation processes in these organizations are failing due to budget overages and low ROI. The main reason for this budget overage and low ROI is that the selected Tools require more man-hours to implement and to deliver testing results, therefore test scripts development; maintenance and execution are becoming unbearable overhead even at the lower hourly rates.
