Moving Test Automation to Cloud by Pramod Bommisetty

This presentation discusses the 3W's (What, When and Why) of Test Automation on Cloud. Traditional testing practices face many challenges such as scalability and adaptability of testing modern applications. While test automation on the cloud will assist with scalability and adaptability, it also provides advantages such as instant access the vast variety of platforms to use and portability with very little overhead. This presentation also discusses challenges and risks of using cloud tools. We will also have a look at widely used cloud platforms for testing and compare them to understand their pros and cons.
