Free registration required

Executive Summary

Of every four dollars spent on software development, at least one dollar goes towards testing. Of this dollar, at least 70 cents go towards functional testing. Within functional testing, test case design is the key determinant of the quality of testing, but it is test execution that is the single largest consumer of effort. This effort multiplies rapidly with the number of configurations to be tested, is required in cycles, and is repetitive to a significant extent. This paper attempts to outline the what, why, how and when of test automation. It focuses more on automation for the QA team, as compared to that for the Development team.
