How an imbalanced test automation strategy hurts business agility

As software inevitably becomes more complex and distributed over time, potential failures appear everywhere, creating the need for ever-increasing test automation for static analysis, regressions, performance, and functional validation. 

However, if too much test automation is applied, at the least opportune times, for the wrong reasons, the software lifecycle – and with it, your business agility – will be pushed out of balance. In this paper, Intellyx Principal Analyst Jason English explores how test engineering and development practices can achieve a healthy balance of test automation, by automating the right kinds of tests at the right time, at the right place, and with the right resources for success. 

IT leaders and DevOps practitioners will learn how to balance automation practices throughout the software delivery pipeline in order to maximize agility, minimize risk, and reduce cost.
