Best Practices in Testing – Leveraging Open Source Technologies in Your Test Automation Strategy
Siva ArunachalamEmtec, Inc

About the Topic

Today, more than ever, there is a growing demand to deliver business applications and enhancements more rapidly. Accelerated development and shorter project cycles put increasing demand on QA organizations to test applications thoroughly, and in shorter time frames. Full scale regression testing of applications becomes more challenging to accomplish within project budget and timeframe.  Test automation is a solution to this problem; however, many organizations face the ongoing challenge of getting approval of the business case to invest in the tools and training.  The growth of Open Source test automation tools provides an opportunity to improve the business case, and a robust test automation framework alleviates several of the challenges.

Key Learning Objectives

  • The need for and benefits of automation frameworks
  • The key considerations in building a framework
  • Some of the open source tools available to address these considerations
  • Benefits to test automation projects
  • A walkthrough of an example framework
