Action Based Testing is the secret sauce that makes TestArchitect a winning recipe for test teams. Find out how to apply ABT in your testing regimen with this infographic.
Agile’s most defining qualities are speed of delivery and testing friendliness. Automating the tests and building a sustainable, low-maintenance framework is the key to maximizing Agile’s benefits. Doing it right requires new thinking and strategic methods—not old or random test automation practices. When coupled with testing and driven by Action Based Testing (ABT), Agile practices will improve system development and test development.
It is a fundamental role for testing teams to align their test design, test automation, and test case development with DevOps–not only to verify that code changes work but that the changes do not break the product. A key differentiator of DevOps is testing maturity. An organization can automate their integration, testing, delivery, and monitor, but still have issues with the intelligence of test orchestration and automation, which can lead to a bottleneck if this is not resolved beforehand.
A major contributor to success in test automation is test design. If tests have many unnecessary detailed steps and checks, even a skilled automation engineer will not be able to make the automation efficient and maintainable.
