The Merits of a Collaborative Manual and Automation Test Team

In many organizations, the manual and automated test teams are separate. But the most successful test teams integrate manual and automation resources into a single, cohesive team. This allows them to fill in any gaps in the test case steps and to develop a more informed automation strategy.

Bringing the Value of Your Test Automation Efforts Front and Center

Once you’ve adopted test automation, you should determine whether it’s actually yielding the expected benefits—and you’ll want to keep these benefits visible to stakeholders to reinforce the value. A metrics dashboard aligned with the organization goals and business objectives shows you're on the right track.

The continuous delivery pipeline should determine whether the software is a viable candidate for production. Having frequent quality gates along that pipeline that give frequent feedback about the quality of the software helps us find that answer faster. Short feedback loops ensure better product quality.

Removing the Performance Testing Bottleneck

When you start down the road to continuous testing, even if you increase speed, performance tests can still hold up production deployments. By using application monitoring, service virtualization, and open source performance testing tools, performance testing is accounted for in every cycle of development.

Staying Competitive in Software Testing

In today’s global economy, staying competitive may be more important than ever. Three ways to contend are by focusing on price, niche (addressing a particular group’s needs), or differentiation (doing things better in some way). Which tactic you choose could make all the difference for your software team.
