With new development methodologies such as DevOps and Agile, it has become increasingly clear that the speed of testing now has to match the speed of development. In order to achieve this, test automation has become an important building block for developing robust and error free applications and software products. Given the intolerance towards faulty or error-prone software products, organizations across the globe are looking at ways of making their automation initiatives stronger and deliver greater value.
According to the State of Quality study conducted by Wipro, there has been an increase of over 85% of test automation initiatives. Since automation testing initiatives are not inexpensive and the cost of bug detection rises incrementally when discovered later in the software development process, it is only fair that these organizations expect to improve the ROI of their test automation initiatives.
