Achieving Successful Automation Outcomes

Are you finding it a challenge to understand if you have the right capability to drive the Automation process, the right technology or solution in place, the right level of business maturity, and/or the right strategy and governance set up to have a consistent Automation practice?

Developing and maintaining an effective and efficient Automation solution can be challenging, and without addressing some of these challenges upfront you run the risk of it simply becoming a technical venture rather than an exercise in continuous improvement and delivery through your business landscape.

Below we highlight some of the key issues to consider:

  • How the internal culture of your organisation may change or how to develop an understanding of how it may need to adapt
  • Consideration of how complex the application and its related architecture is
  • How the QA solution and process may impact any existing legacy systems

If these items aren’t addressed, you’ll be diving in headfirst without assessing your actual need or having a clear strategy to deliver successful outcomes, and with no focus on continuous improvement or understanding what you’re trying to achieve through Automation. This a common pitfall that results in time and effort being spent without realising its true benefit or any true business value.

Once you’ve established that Automation is right for your organisation and at what scale, you’ll want to understand how to drive successful Automation outcomes and enable your organisation to understand their actual business need as well as creating a solution that’s “Fit for Purpose” and which addresses your key drivers, vision and business objectives.
