Analyst firm, voke, recently surveyed leading development and testing professionals worldwide to compare their test automation practices. Although all respondents agreed on the benefits of unit and API testing versus a UI centric approach, a larger portion are still spending the majority of their time manual testing, with little to no time spent on the other practices. Those surveyed agreed that API testing is more effective at achieving greater levels of test and code coverage, but many stated that they need more training and development skills to expand the technology at their organizations successfully.
Join the Theresa Lanowitz, analyst and founder of voke and Mark Lambert, VP of Products from Parasoft, as they walk through the survey results and discuss the key trends and observations uncovered from industry peers. They’ll divulge the necessary modern technologies and best practices to enable the successful adoption of software test automation.
Key takeaways include:
- Survey data showing the current state of automated testing, including adoption rates and critical challenges of API testing
- The benefits of balancing code-level and API-layer testing with a UI testing centric approach
- How today’s groundbreaking technologies leverage machine learning and AI to enable greater adoption of API and unit testing and promote team collaboration
- Best practices and case studies that show how leading organizations are successfully adopting and scaling test automation
