Recorded for on-demand viewing. Scroll down to view and download slides.

Your organization has implemented software test automation and is not realizing the value it expected. Or perhaps, it’s just starting to consider implementation and you wish to be proactive (always a wise decision). The scope and complexities of software testing are increasing as new technologies and environments emerge, applications become more advanced, and users become more astute! Including test automation as part of your strategy can improve your testing process but you’re then faced with numerous considerations. What challenges should we expect and how do we overcome them? If left unaddressed, what impact will these challenges present? Does our software testing team have the necessary skills to be successful? How will we define and measure success? This presentation will address common challenges and provide strategies on how to overcome them in order to develop a strategic roadmap to successful implementation!
