Intelligent Automation – What does it take?

April 9th, 2014

Intelligence is no more about fighting technical problems but to graduate to a higher level of delivering “Do more, but do NO more”. In the context of automated testing, automation needs to become smarter and intelligent to enable us to make decisions faster – provide valuable information about the state of the system, to enable us to do less, yet deliver to meet the continuously increasing customer expectations.

In the Mar-Apr 2014 issue of Tea-time with Testers ezine, T Ashok, Architect – HBT, shares his views on this subject. According to him, Intelligent automation means scripts that are easy to build & maintain, scripts that are purposeful enabling tester to clearly identify the problem, scripts that are resilient to ensure that maximal number of scripts executed in a run and finally scripts that help analyze outcomes and suggest actions rather than report test outcomes as a report.

It is value, not activities that matter.

March 12th, 2014

We are in the business of software. And business is about making money. About increasing our revenue. About increasing profits. Ultimately value is associated with money. How does what we are doing enable higher yield? Higher profitability? If what you perceive as value cannot be tied to money, then re-think. Value is really a ratio of the outcome to the cost expended. Better outcomes and the same cost improves the revenue capability and adds to the top
line while the same outcome at a lower cost improves profitability ads to the bottom-line. Of course a combination of both would be brilliant i.e. higher revenue and much higher profits.

In the February 2014 issue of Tea time with Testers ezine, T Ashok delves at what stages we can deliver value across the PDLC, SDLC, TLC, to our customer and to organization where you work. Read the full article below:
