Quality is delighting customers
A major reason for functional automated testing failing before the investments pay off is the amount of maintenance to the tests and other testware. This is actually easy to avoid with keyword-driven testing. It ensures that test analysts do not require programming skills to create or maintain automated tests. It also significantly reduces the test maintenance effort for as long as the system is being tested. A key feature of the approach is the use of business oriented 'keywords': easy to use test instructions that are defined by the test analysts themselves, specifically for a System Under Test.
