Why Test Center Automation is Critical
Why test? It’s about confidence. The development and testing phase of an application can have a significant impact on the overall cost and time to market for a software product. Poorly tested applications can result in expensive and time-consuming back-out plans and outages.
Why test center automation? Project managers are continually encouraged to reduce costs and reduce overall test cycle times while delivering more comprehensive test coverage. These conflicting goals mean that you need to find the most efficient ways to perform your job. Automation can help accomplish these goals. Automating the build and repurposing of test assets allows you to both reduce the cost of hardware, software and test infrastructure management, and improve quality by creating a near replica of your production environment.
