How to Leverage TestArchitect in DevOps

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.

Automation Friendly Test Design—An Example

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.

How to Use Actions in Multi-Station Testing – The Lead – Deputy Model

In his latest TechWell column, Hans Buwalda discusses multi-station testing with actions, in particular using the “lead-deputy model.”  In this model, a lead machine is responsible for most of the UI interaction of a test, but will also assign commands to the one or more “deputy” machines. The “deputy” machines work like normal test machines and are able to interpret and execute actions. They can work in sync with the lead machine, or in parallel.

The Vision for Test Automation

What is often misunderstood is that automated testing is not the same as automating manual testing. For automated testing to be successful, tests need to be designed with their automation already in place. This source of many test automation failures is the absence of this simple factor.
