Slow take up of automated testing

Seapine Software Quality-Ready Assessment (QRA)  reported that few organisations have embraced automated testing. Forty-four percent of organisations have either not investigated automated testing or do not see enough of an ROI to implement it. The QRA results show that automated testing has not gained wide acceptance among software development and QA organisations.

• 37% of organisations have purchased an automation tool but have not put it into wide use.
• 60% of organisations must redeploy some resources to regression test critical bug fixes.
• 44% of development and QA organisations do not use automated testing.

For most software development organisations, test suites grow in lockstep with the code base. To continue to complete the required testing, organizations must either add more testers or find more efficient ways to test. Test automation provides a solution to that problem.
