What is the Problem?
As part of the Continuous Delivery audit process we conduct with our Salesforce clients, the audit results of test automation has produced the following top-3 hurdles for Test Automation.
- Test Automation needs specialized knowledge and teams
- Over a period of time, the complexity of the test scripts grows and maintainability is an issue
- Test data setup for Test Automation is difficult [especially, if third-party apps are involved due to their complex relationship mappings]
What is Our Approach?
While working with the Salesforce ecosystem, like development teams, partners and architects, we constantly try to add innovation by addressing these hurdles.
