How to Implement Efficient Test Automation in the Agile World


Automation in Agile is very critical.

Think about the many features that are added and delivered to every Sprint.  There has to be a way to make sure that the newly added feature is not impacting the existing functionality.

Due to the low Sprint duration, it is practically impossible to execute the entire suit every time the product is incremented at the Sprint ends.  Having an automated test suit would definitely play a bigger role here.

However, introducing and maturing into automation would definitely take some time. Doing an initial investment in planning and designing the automation activity would definitely pay off in the long run.

Automated Regression Testing: Challenges, Process And Steps

Automated Regression Testing

This tutorial explains the Challenges of Automated Regression Testing. We will also learn about the Process and Steps to Automate Regression Testing:

We will explore how to automate the regression test cases starting from identifying them, selecting a tool to do the automation, doing cost, time & effort analysis, writing scripts and finally delivering it to the manual test team so that they can execute the test cases from anywhere anytime.

If you are wondering why only the regression test suite, its just that the regression test suite is the prime candidate for automation as it is a set of test cases which are repetitive and time taking. Thus, automating them would indeed save you lots of resources and it would be less time-consuming too.

You will get quick reports on the regression test cases and you can use these steps to automate any other test suites too.
