Download As organizations look to reduce costs across a wide range of operational disciplines, IT will become under the radar more and more. The impact of project slippage, poor quality delivery, and inadequate solutions will not be tolerated. This may prove a pain-point for many organizations who have traditionally failed in these critical areas. Testing, like all project disciplines, has areas that can be quickly improved within an organization. One of the key areas where cost-savings and project efficiencies can be generated is through the use of test automation. The ideal is to reduce time and cost and improve quality. However, to maximize the benefits across all three needs some simple principles to be followed. This paper is aimed at lifting the lid on what makes test automation a viable option for an organization and recommending some sound advice in the implementation of a test automation strategy. This whitepaper looks at how planning and proper use of automated test tools can reduce the cost of testing, and improve the quality and reliability of the software to bring more cost benefits to the business.
