Test Impact Analysis

November 13, 2017 0

In the days of DevOps supported by approaches like continuous deployment, the concepts of continuous testing and test automation are essential to support the speed needed for delivering quickly solutions (and hopefully value) to the users. Some of the big questions in the software testing community are “How much should we automate our tests?” and “What tests should we run?”. The technique of Test Impact Analysis helps to answer to this question.
