I often hear what great diligence they put into the planning and the talented people they hired to build the automation, so the questions begs why are they all failing? After working with a number of clients to not only install an automated testing framework, but also implementing their agile process, I have consistently observed what I term a “killer dozen” automation implementation killers. Over the next few weeks I will discuss each of these issues in [...]

ATF is pleased to announce our solution for companies looking to move from HP's Unified Functional Testing (UFT) (formerly QTP) to today's leading edge open source solutions. Many HP UFT users have wished to make the move to open source tools in order to use leading edge tooling such as Selenium, Appium, Sauce Labs, BlazeMeter and JMeter, but have resisted due to a number of issues. These issues include the possible loss of the investment they have made in their HP UFT/QTP scripts, not having the expertise to build an open source solution and not knowing how to re-train their staff in the new skills needed to work with the leading open source tools. ATF is very pleased to offer a comprehensive solution to all [...]

This ability does expand the types of test cases that can be automated, but on the other hand this is still record and play and creates some large maintenance issues. Contrary to [...]
