A major problem with massive software systems is the difficulty of finding enough time to do proper regression and sanity check testing. In most organizations, there is barely enough QA time and talent to simply verify the changes… much less check for the hundreds of possible side effects that they can cause. This makes the automation of routine regression testing one of the most important recent developments in QA strategy.
Like all benefits in the software industry, test automation has a drawback. The people who would be the logical choices to create the automated test harness and test cases are the same people who are desperately needed to perform the functional tests of the new code. Even after the harness and support code is created and verified, someone still has to create new automated test cases to keep up with the new feature/bug fix releases.
QualityLogic has veterans of the test automation process on its QA staff who are skilled with the latest tools such as Selenium, QTP and Groovy. We can provide external resources to automate your tests who are not already committed to covering your production test work. They have the time and expertise to thoroughly plan out development of the automation test harness, and then execute those plans. They can work alongside your developers and QA staff to make sure that the test cases keep up with the new development work.
