Selecting an automation testing solution is still a challenging and critical endeavor for any testing organization. Open source-based solutions seem to be the preferable choice for the transition with low ownership cost, abundant training materials, and active user communities but require a high level of programming skills. Functional testing continues to be the top choice for automation primarily in regression and smoke test areas.
