Automated testing tools are capable of executing the test cases, reporting the outcomes and comparison of results with the previous test runs. Automation testing involves various intangible benefits. Many organizations believe that test automation immediately reduces the costs, shortens the test cycles which are actually the long term benefits of adopting test automation. But one thing to be considered is that all the test automation projects do not deliver expected ROI and success.
• To ensure that the cost of test automation tools meets the budget constraints.
• To estimate the cost of effort that depends upon the resources involved in the project, time involved, and the product’s complexity.
Test automation, if believed to reduce costs in the long term for the organization, the ROI must be calculated. BugRaptors performs ROI calculation to determine whether to perform test automation or not. Every application requires changes from time to time, all these changes affect test automation scripts that need to be changed depending upon the change in the application.
The ROI for test automation can move into positive zone depending upon the number of regression cycles required for the lifetime of the application.
