About Decoding Automation
The last couple of years has seen unprecedented challenges across every industry and country. The pandemic has severely impacted QA and IT strategy, forcing teams to become more agile and to do more with less. But the quality of IT remains a critical success factor globally. So what are the test automation trends in 2022? In this episode, Anand Chandra from the renowned IT consultancy firm, Accolite Digital, and Sune Engsig from Leapwork, share their predictions on the top 4 test automation trends to look out for in 2022.
In this episode, we discuss the roles and responsibilities of testers and developers, and how those roles have changed over time - particularly with the introduction of test automation. We talk about how skills gaps in software development have become a common issue, and how automation in some cases becomes a barrier to agile, instead of an enabler, and how no-code helps solve these issues. We also touch upon topics such as citizen development, Shadow IT, scaling and maintainability.
In this episode, we talk about the differences between test automation and RPA, and how businesses can benefit from these technologies. We discuss a business case where a process went from taking about 45 minutes to 2 minutes, and automation specialists Sune Engsig and Florin Manole lay out the requirements for automation tools that will let businesses see these types of benefits, fast. We also talk about no-code, low-code, citizen developers, and more.
Development and QA teams face a lot of pressure to release faster and more frequently. With the economic downturn that has followed the corona crisis, the pressure to do more with less has only increased. What's more, maintenance burdens, developer dependencies, and time restraints create even more bottlenecks and slow down the release cycle. So how can we do regression testing faster while ensuring quality? Praveen Kumar, LEAPWORK’s Customer Success Director, answers this question in this episode.
