There are Reasons for Dropping Tests. Be Aware of the Reasons and the Associated Risks.
Testing is an integral part of any software development process. After an initial test run during development there is usually a repeated test procedure in place. Ideally, it is fully automated and runs on a regular schedule. However, the scope of these tests rarely covers 100% of all functionality. There are always some parts that are not tested. What are those parts? When should you stop testing? How do you identify the components, where testing might not be worth the cost?

Any IT application requires testing before a successful Go-Live. The automation of these tasks allows the inexpensive repetition and continuous monitoring of functionalities and has become commonplace. It is an integral part of modern Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD). As costs for implementation and adaptation are the driving factors in deciding whether to automate testing, this will be the focus of this paper. By hiring 12 test automation professionals where each of them has the same task but uses their respective favourite tool, we can benchmark these tools. Assuming that all tools find the correct issues, we will evaluate the tools based on the time it takes to create and adapt tests.
