Challenges and Return of Investment in Automated Testing

Current test automation based on application front end is often challenged by limited testability of the application and costly maintenance of the test scripts. Knowing all these pitfalls can help us to prepare to them when implementing a sucessfull test automation project. What are the all factors taking part in a realistic return of investment calculation? What are the main challenges the test automation project can face and what the solutions would be? Does it make sense to automate purely based on application front-end or to join the forces with the unit testing style? Which scope of tests is suitable to automate? How to cope with a really short release period, typically in agile development? The aim of the presentation is to open the questions quite frequently asked in the test automation and give structured answers, which can help the audience in their testing projects.
