Increasing Efficiency & Productivity of Manual and Automated Testing

In the software development process, test positioning, resource planning, efficiency and productivity have always been under examination. Test management tools, agile approaches, outsourcing and test automation were offered as solutions to the matter. Today, efficiency and productivity has reached a new high thanks to the exponential speed of digital transformation and remote working dynamics. Now, we can measure the efficiency of test automation and shape our test automation plan accordingly. Even so, it seems as if the manual testing would prevail as the backbone of this field. And, it is safe to mention the difficulty to satisfy the fluctuating need for manual testing with a fixed number of resources. For this very reason, test teams in the TechOps Center are positioned to manage the manual testing needs in an efficient and productive model.
