Agile methodology has pushed organizations to complete testing in a sprint. However, testing is fraught with regression, smoke testing, and re-testing glitches that create a loop of unnecessary iterations after the development is completed. This is where the approach of “In-Sprint Test Automation” brings an ideal development scenario, where testing too, becomes a part of the development instead of being the last step.
With In-Sprint Test Automation, the entire testing cycle; from creating, implementing, executing, and reporting is conducted in just one sprint.
Although “In-Sprint Test Automation” has become a byword in the agile test automation landscape, many organizations are still struggling to adopt this approach. They are still heavily invested in writing scripts for manual and automated testing.
