To automate or not to automate

Why are you still holding on to manual testing? Has the experience of an automation failing been so expensive? Or are you avoiding it because you don’t want to experience the former? The reasons for avoiding are many like complexity, expensive, time and skill intensive, time to market, human errors.

Manual testing is absolutely essential. Test automation cannot replace manual testing. If testing is means to build high quality software, then test automation is a means to mean. You would agree, it is one of the effective strategies to build optimum software testing process. But the dilemma continues…

One one hand lies to cost of developing, maintaining and operating test automation. And on the other hand lies of the cost of increased time to market and the unidentified bugs due to lack of 100 % manual regression. What would you choose?
