Automated functional testing tools are gaining popularity among QA teams of all sizes as the benefits of automated testing become more apparent. Automated functional testing can enhance testing efficiencies by producing more reliable code, catching more defects earlier on in the software development lifecycle (SDLC), and bringing software to production faster. In order to realize these benefits, however, common implementation pitfalls must be avoided.
This note discusses the key areas in which problems can occur during the implementation of an automated functional testing tool. Learn how to:
- Avoid costly mistakes before the implementation of an automated testing tool.
- Manage expectations of what the tool will and will not do.
By understanding common automated testing implementation mistakes, organizations can manage a smoother introduction into the testing phase.
