Software testing is often considered a side activity, almost a “necessary evil”. With the acceleration of software development lifecycles along with higher dependency on software in business and private environments, software testing is facing new challenges of increased workload. More and more companies decide to face these challenges with the help of test automation. This raises new questions: What should we automate? Can we keep the test assets we created over the last decade? Who will develop the tests? Like with any development, test automation needs a firm foundation made of requirements. In this session, we will look at some techniques for requirement elicitation related to test automation, and discuss how collaboration within the team can be improved.
