6 ROI – Benefit/Cost Costs (pay now)  Additional Resources  Software licenses  Additional Hardware Benefits (later on…maybe)  Frees up resources  Reduce the cost of testing  Speed and Accuracy of tests  Accumulation, expand your test coverage  Find defects earlier  Shorten the test cycle  Reduce the costs to fix defects  Accessibility, quickly testing the backend  Reduced test execution time, execute 24/7

7 Sample ROI CalculationsROI Calculations ROI - Sample

8 Use trained resources ‘Industrialise’ your manual scripting process Treat it as a development project  Structured Automation methodology  Dedicated resources  Scope  Schedule  ‘Best practice’,modularise, use functions  Version Control Start small (POC), then expand aggressively Maintain your test suite Move Automation up (into) the development lifecycle Don’t ‘blinker’ anyone - follow the C.V.D. rule Outsource Guarantee your ROI, before you start…here’s how
