If you wish to maintain Quality Assurance in difficult times here's a plan:

o Automate

It is neither possible nor desirable to automate all testing. However, without automation, testing is unscalable.

Manual testing is vital, but expensive. Test analysts should be focused on tasks where they are most effective, not on tasks that can be done by machines.

Make sure you have a QA automation strategy that is capable of identifying what and when to automate.


o When you automate - keep tests relevant and meaningful

Create automated tests that clearly describe business process and exercise acceptance criteria. Produce Executable Requirements instead of static documentation.

Evaluate test specification languages like FIT, Fitnesse, Selenese and RSpec.

o Use free and open source software

The largest test automation vendors (HP/Mercury, IBM/Rational, Compuware

and Borland) all charge thousands of pounds in license fees alone. Review any

commitment you have to these vendors. Plan to replace their tools with free Open Source Software alternatives where you can.

Evaluate the acclaimed In-browser automation tool - Selenium. It is the tool of choice for testing Rich Internet Applications that use technologies such as AJAX. It is also free.

o Use our free and open sourced automation framework - Hermes
