Short answer: yes, definitely. The Agile method is quickly becoming the preferred way of working at today’s most successful product companies. Agile teams are, by their nature, cross-functional.

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.
