Automated testing tools comparison

We tried comparing all the features required for Continuous Delivery in fast-paced development practices. We have put together the factors that need to be considered to choose the best automation testing tools suitable for business.

One of the main reasons why test automation fails for many companies is that they fail to evaluate the tools with realtime scenarios and requirements. We strongly recommend you to evaluate the tools before you choose any.

Don't just believe what the websites or salespeople say. Try it on your own and pick the one that suits your processes best.
