STARWEST 2023 Concurrent Session : Building Resiliency in Test Automation


Thursday, October 6, 2022 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Building Resiliency in Test Automation

Test Automation tends to fail due to multiple aspects—especially UI test automation – which is more fragile than the Service and DB level test automation. The challenge is fixing the automation failures and using them in the same development iteration. Building resiliency in test automation is a must to make test automation robust. A resilient test automation framework will reduce failures and simplify the maintenance of test automation code. Resiliency can be enabled through automation tools, design, and architecture. During this session, Mr. Yoosuf Maktoum - Senior Manager, Quality Engineering, will share real-world examples of building resiliency in test automation. With key takeaways including: architect a resilient test automation framework, handle failures effectively, and a framework to maintain test automation code.
