As test automation is introduced to the software delivery process, the amount of available test results explodes. Robots, or test execution agents, can run 24/7 without breaks, and, on top of this, the number of test cases accumulate during each sprint. As such, more results are produced to be managed and analyzed. This requires the right approach.

If the time spent investigating test results exceeds the time saved by running automated tests, then automation does not improve output quality and it’s not worth the cost. To reap the benefits of automation it is essential to know how to properly handle the growing amount of test results.
