Does anyone have statistics about test automation? In the last World Quality Report (October 2017) I read those ones:
- 48% of companies (>1000 employees) suffer from too much reliance on manual testing.
- 16% is the average level of automation of test activities (I wonder how they came up with this number though. And I don't think it's a good indicator either).
But obviously, I want moar.
For example, I would like to know who's actually automating tests (percentage of medium and small IT companies?), with which tools.
A bit of context: it's a client of mine which is asking those questions. We explained him the pros and cons, we showed him a demo and pointed out some success and failure factors. I think he's becoming aware of test automation benefits but he may need to check whether it's an actual thing !
And, to be honest, I love statistics too, especially when I know how they were "made". So feel free to share any of it here.
EDIT : Wow, I finally found something! State of Testing survey 2017: http://qablog.practitest.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/State_of_testing_2017_final_report.pdf
