10 Things to Look for when Evaluating Automated Testing Tools

The need for automated testing tools is expanding, propelled by trends like “the internet of things”, and a general expansion of software that spans all industries. Software living within today’s medical devices, automobiles, avionics, industrial controls (and many more application), provides developers with an opportunity to maximize the potential of their products and satisfy customers.

In many ways, this reliance on software represents the crossing of a new technological frontier. And, as pioneers pushing forward into new territory, balancing risk has become more important than ever before. Thus, selecting effective testing tools has become as important to the application development process as engineering the software itself. But when one takes the first step into...
