Utopia Founder and CTO Lee Barnes will be speaking at the QAI Quest 2016 Conference & Expo on April 21, 2016 at 11:15 am to 12:15 pm. In a talk titled “Don’t be Another Statistic! Develop a Strategy for Long-Term Test Automation Success”, Barnes will be discussing how the key strategy components that must be in place to avoid becoming another test automation statistic.

Talk Summary:

Choosing the appropriate tool and building the right framework are typically thought of as the main challenges to successful test automation.  However, even after careful tool selection and advanced automation framework construction, long-term success proves elusive to many.  Learn the importance of, and techniques for, assessing your organization’s readiness for test automation in foundational areas including test objectives, organizational structure, process integration, environment and resources/skills.  Once you understand your state of readiness, you can begin to formulate a strategy for addressing gaps and laying the groundwork for long-term success.  Lee presents a framework for developing a solid test automation strategy that addresses automation scope, required organizational & process changes, and implementation roadmap.  Take back a blue print for implementing successful test automation in a way that uniquely fits your organization, and become a positive test automation statistic!

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the foundational areas required to be successful with test automation
  • How to assess your organization’s readiness to be successful with test automation
  • Understand the required components of a successful test automation strategy
