Just this morning I was having this discussion with one of the project managers of a big banking platform and we both agreed that going for Automation without taking other details in account is like walking on a cliff blindfolded. He said I raised my concern among other stakeholders that first we need to assess whether we need automation at this point. They work on huge complex banking business logic. Its really long hauling process.
Thank you Bas for such an amazing guidelines for Automation Strategy.
Test Data management is a key point. I have seen multiple customers failing on that front. Reporting is another key area which I think is not given enough importance. Unless you have an easily accessible and readable report, your automation is not going to be worth much. People forget that -“ones who write the automation tests need not be the ones analyzing it”.
