Selecting the right automation framework is hard. Today, there are so many possibilities. From open source solutions to our own developed commercial tools.

In this session, I'll take you through my automation journey of 6 years of automating different systems and how I selected the right automation tool/framework for each project.

We'll "fight" together the never-ending battle between selecting our own tool as a vendor to selecting the right tool for the project which is open source. How we convinced management that open source was the right selection over our own vendor tools.

I'll explain the process of selecting a new framework for a new product and share the 10-commandments of an automation framework for us.

      I know what you’re thinking: the creators of WinRunner, QTP/UFT are now embracing Selenium?

      Ten years after Selenium came into existence as an open source alternative to Mercury Interactive, the perception and relationship between QTP and Selenium has morphed from competition to collaboration with complementary test automation frameworks.
