People often get excited when they hear the word “automation”. It is like a trendy new technology gadget and everyone wants a piece of it at first. But, it quickly loses its charm as teams struggle to come up with a Test Design/Strategy that fits their unique needs. One size does not fit all!!!
This has been an ongoing problem for the past several decades. The main reason for this is, teams do not understand how to implement automation as part of the agile process and integrate it with the CI/CD pipeline. They struggle with different problems such as lack of time and resources, not knowing how to get started, being unaware of the best practices in automation, inability to predict the infrastructure requirements needed to support the automation efforts and much more.
