In my next assignment I need to identify the projects for which we can use automation through QTP. Lot of theoriticall fundas available on net which describes when to automate? what to automate etc? Some people says its most useful for regression testing when you are having multiple release of your application. Some people says you can introduce it for the first release itself and earliest will be better that will save time and money.
however I need to make decision in my company and I need to realise them ROI when I choose projects for automation so I would like to listen from this great community what they are automating in their projects? I wish this real examples will help me a lot to make decision.
Please describe at least what you are automating in your project and your thought process behind that.
