Perfecto by Perforce Releases 2021 State of Test Automation Report
Survey of over 700 leading digital enterprises reveals misalignment between leadership and practitioners, with C-Suite and VPs overestimating automation rates.
MINNEAPOLIS, January 26, 2021 — Perfecto by Perforce, market leader in cloud-based automated mobile and web application testing solutions, today announced the release of its 2021 State of Test Automation Report, which outlines trends in testing, automation rates, and testing concerns and priorities for 2021.
To better understand web and mobile app testing today, Perforce surveyed over 700 DevOps professionals across industries.
Equipped with the data from this survey, along with expert insights and recommendations from Perfecto, the 2021 State of Test Automation Report takes a pulse on test automation — including automation rates, the importance of mobile in testing strategies, how testing is done, the adoption rate of “shift left,” and top challenges faced by leading organizations today.
Misalignment With Leadership Hinders Innovation
The survey revealed a surprising misalignment between practitioners and leadership. Practitioners reported lower levels of test automation than estimated by C-Suite and VPs. Closing this gap will be key in 2021.
“The focus for 2021 will be aligning all testing practitioners with leadership so teams can innovate with confidence,” says Eran Kinsbruner, Chief Evangelist of Perfecto.
“To improve the discrepancy in automation rates, teams will rely more on scriptless and intelligent test automation tools. These tools can help teams fit test automation within the build process, which we discovered was a significant challenge in the survey.”
Not only do these tools improve automation rates, but they also enable cross-team collaboration by allowing more team members to contribute to test automation efforts.
With improved alignment and increased automation, teams can avoid time-consuming testing backlogs, expedite feedback loops, and deliver apps with fewer escaped defects.
