Reduce test debt with testing powered by AI/ML

Functionize provides a more sustainable way to automate & release faster

Test automation is crucial for fast releases and digital transformations. Yet, most teams struggle to keep up with business demands due to test debt. The most significant form of test debt is caused by the ongoing maintenance of automated tests. Each time your application UI is updated, some of your automated tests break and need to be fixed before they can be run.

What is test debt?

If you only have a few test scripts, this repetitive cycle might be bearable, but most teams will quickly end up drowning in test debt. Eventually, you reach a tipping point where there’s simply too much maintenance debt to pay off. This leads to testing teams falling behind the pace of new development. There’s not enough time for high value testing tasks. Over time, automated test results no longer become reliable, and teams end up ditching their automation altogether. This is why so many teams still heavily depend on manual testing.

Test debt gets in the way of innovation and CI/CD

Fixing broken tests is a vicious cycle and gets in the way of being able to automate more and release faster. Functionize is the only solution that uses big data and advanced machine learning to solve this complex problem. In order to increase automation output and keep up with the pace of CI/CD, you need resilient tests that can stay up to date using AI/ML.

Test debt forces painful trade-offs

Automation is supposed to speed up releases and increase quality. But, when test debt is unbearable, you’re forced to make painful sacrifices. Either your quality suffers, your release speed slows down, or you’re forced to cut costs. Whichever trade-off your organization chooses, it’s a losing game.

Test debt takes a toll on testers’ emotional & mental wellbeing

These painful trade-offs have a significant impact on testers’ overall health. Teams are often forced to work overtime to meet release goals. The mundane task of fixing broken tests take higher priority from more strategic activities that leverage testers’ critical thinking skills. When there’s limited time and resources, QA stress levels are elevated and team morale plummets.
