Included in Full Research


  • アプリケーション・リーダーは、オープンソースのテスト自動化ツールを使用するために必要なスキルが、自らのチームに不足していると感じている。

  • オープンソースはライセンス・コストがかからないが、適切な対策を講じなければ、アプリケーション・リーダーにとってガバナンス面のコストが生じることになる。

  • オープンソース・ツールのテクノロジ面および機能面の不足を自力で十分に補完できない組織は、商用サポートが必要になったり、成果が限定的になったりする。

  • 体系的なアプローチでツールを選定しないと、アプリケーション・リーダーが手にするテスト・ツールは複数のオープンソースが入り混じった異質で雑多なものになり、統合と保守のコストが増大する。


アプリケーション開発とプラットフォームを担うアプリケーション・リーダーは、オープンソース・ソフトウェア (OSS) のテスト・ツール戦略を運用するために、以下を行う。

  • トレーニングに投資し、テストのサイロを再構築して継続的な品質向上のプラクティスを確立することで、関連するテクニカル・スキルとチーム・スキルを高める。

  • 組織のリスク・プロファイルと生産性向上の必要性を評価することで、商用サポートとセルフサポートのどちらが必要かを判断する。

  • 既存のツールチェーンとの統合やコミュニティの積極的なサポートなど、基準に重み付けをした指標を作成し、有効なツールを選定する。

  • 組織内にツール・グループを設立してオープンソースのテスト・エコシステムを構築することで、ツールの無秩序な増大を抑制する。
