As the saying goes, “You cannot control what you cannot measure.” In the software testing world control is the key to success, so the ability to clearly measure tests and track results effectively is essential. Historically, the results of automation have only been discussed generally and vaguely: is it helping the team? Is it helping the managers? Is it improving the quality of the product?
Ask any product manager or QA lead what the most valuable tool is in their quiver. Chances are good that they’ll say the name of a well-known test automation tool. Acquiring a powerful automation tool is great, but working with a QA provider that knows the tool well and can fully leverage it for best results is a true gamechanger.
