Building a test automation strategy that will effectively support the needs of your team and business goals can be quite challenging.

Continuous Delivery (CD) enables a production-ready software release—at any time. Though it takes time to implement, configure, and remake the team culture, it dovetails well with Agile methodology. When done well, CD significantly reduces the release timeline […]

Scalability in Automated Testing https://www.functionize.com/blog/scalability-in-automated-testing/ https://www.functionize.com/blog/scalability-in-automated-testing/#respond Thu, 07 Jun 2018 16:29:33 +0000 https://www.functionize.com/?p=2052 When discussing test automation, it can be helpful to think explicitly of automated test execution, because the majority of those involved in the process are referring to automating the test execution. Such a focus on automating the execution of the tests makes it plain that even non-technical testers can access and use the automation tools. Modern AI-driven automation technology (such as you’ll find in Functionize) makes it much easier for teams to collaborate and benefit from automated testing.

For years, AI remained largely in the realms of Science Fiction. However, in recent years, huge advances in computing power have combined with […]
