Many of the test automation mechanisms work well for applications having a fixed type of behavior that does not change from one client to another or does not change by changing configuration.
But today, many of the applications are highly configurable and customizable. Their user interface and business workflow gets altered for every customer.
Most of the automation suites perform well as long as there is no change in the UI. Such automation suite is built for one customer, however, it fails to perform for the same application if it is customized for another customer or used with a different set of parameters in the configuration file.
This results in a huge defect leakage and customer dis-satisfaction as the customization does not get tested and it is simply impossible to test the application manually for every customer. Not to mention, the huge effort required to maintain the automation scripts due to UI changes.
Thank you, for joining us for the webinar “Automation of Test Automation” on September 30, 2015. Attendees gained insights on how to develop an automation suite having a self maintaining automation mechanism and which would work for any customization and configuration.
