Automation is not the next big thing. It’s the future that is now.
It is easy to understand why. Technology does the job quicker and often better while freeing us for more creative tasks.
When it comes to software testing
that helps us get rid of nasty bugs and make users happy, the benefits of automation testing are pretty much the same. A higher speed, reduced costs, and fewer errors.
However, many are slow to adopt. According to a recent survey
, 25% of testers from across industries are just starting on their test automation journey or have no automation whatsoever.
Common automation testing challenges range from a lack of skilled resources or knowledge to identify the right methods and tools to changing software requirements.
