Criteria for Choosing the Right Open-Source Automation Tools [Presentation]

When considering adopting DevOps and open-source test automation tools, it's very important to address the automation target gap.

In response to accelerated release cycles, a new set of testing capabilities is now required to deliver quality at speed. This is why there is a shake-up in the testing tools landscape—and a new leader has emerged in the just released Gartner Magic Quadrant for Software Test Automation.

I recently presented a session together with my colleague Amir Rozenberg.

The subject was the shift from legacy to open-source frameworks, the motivations behind it, and the challenges of adopting open source without a clear strategy especially in the digital space that includes three layers:

  1. Open-source connectivity to a lab.
  2. Open-source and its test coverage capabilities (For example, can an open-source framework support system-level, visual analysis, real environment settings, and more?).
  3. Open-source reporting and analysis capabilities.

During the session, Amir also presented an open-source BDD/Cucumber-based test framework called Quantum.
