Looking Beyond Test Automation

Looking Beyond Test Automation

Abstract

An automated process to manage the test environments, including installation of required combinations of OS,  tools, applications under test, execution of  tests and results reporting would greatly help reduce the manual effort and redundancy as well as improve utilization of the hardware and servers during off peak hours.
 
This framework is meant to integrate the various independent automated test components and extend the test automation to include more phases of the test process starting from the test environment setup to the test execution and final test results reporting. The objective is to look beyond just functional test automation towards automating the entire test process.

Excerpts from the Paper
 
The framework described here looks beyond regular functional test automation to include more areas of the test cycle. This includes automating the environment setup, installation/configuration of Operating systems and related applications, identifying the required automated test suites to be run and lastly capturing the test results. The approach described here is distributed and modular and component based. Each of the components  would manage a part of the test process and would be individually executable and would allow any phase of the testing process to be automated independently. 

The primary goal of this automation will be to fulfill the needs of testing organizations to reduce the overall time required for testing a product on wide variety of platforms. Such an Automation framework  will result in improvement at all stages of the product testing process. It can be put to use 24X7 with minimal human intervention and generate the test results on large number of supported platform combinations at  the same time optimizing the utilization of expensive hardware resulting in better return on investment (ROI).
