As we all know, automated testing is a great way to reduce manual effort since by this means we can leverage automation to replace the execution of tests by a human tester with virtual pipelines. So, we can eliminate not only a huge need for manpower, but also time and cost.
With such a great looking opportunity, why do we still have to spend so much time on QA activities even if we have automation? Being aware that automation is still very useful, perhaps the question we need to explore is, what doesn’t it solve? Or what are the biggest pitfalls in building test automation itself?
In this talk, I collected my personal experiences focused on the challenges of test automation in global projects.
