Your test automation strategy is the foundation of your final product. The difference between delivering your app’s potential impact to market, or having to watch it fail comes down to the rigors of your QA process. A test automation strategy is your perfect plan for executing that process.
Every single delay in launching your product hurts your brand image, and drastically reduces your potential customer base. Being late, by a day, hour or minute means that someone else gets the first chance to impress your potential customers with a solution to their problem.

The digital transformation of business has raised consumer expectations such that they expect to be able to pay for everything—from pizzas to plane tickets—without having to open their wallets. The demand for truly secure, effortless, seamless, faultless digital transactions puts pressure on developers to produce perfect POS software.
The use of artificial intelligence in test automation is one of the latest trends dominating the quality assurance industry. In fact, in Capgemini’s survey titled World Quality Report 2020-2021, 21% of IT leaders said that they are implementing AI in some form or another in their testing methodologies, while only 2% said that AI has no part in their future planning.
Test automation metrics are the secret weapon of successful QA teams. In fact, the right automation coverage metrics provide an unbiased, deeper understanding of your QA process so that you can identify and fix pain points while improving your team’s performance and efficiency.
Automated testing is adapting to the ever-evolving trends in the software industry. More companies are replacing the traditional approach of running automation suites on separate hardware and software with a comprehensive virtual test lab.
The question still stands: Is virtual machine automation just another fad, or is virtual machine testing worth the investment?
As the COVID-19 pandemic shook the foundation of the global economy, organizations started preparing for the future in a completely new landscape.

That’s why product developers are adopting a mobile-first strategy. And since Android dominates the mobile OS market, it only makes sense for QA testers to become fluent in Google’s digital language.
