The Business Case for Test Automation
Linda Hayes, WorkSoft, Inc.
In tight economic times, it’s more important than ever to show a return on technology investments, including test automation. Unfortunately, management’s expectations are usually unrealistic in that they expect immediate results and aren’t prepared for the ongoing level of investment required after the tool is purchased. Find out why the benefits traditionally promised - reduced test resources and cycle time - are misleading and inaccurate.

• Learn to properly set expectations and increase your chances of success
• Acquire new techniques to quantify the return on your test automation investment
• Find ways to justify additional time, money, and resources

Wrap up
