This article discusses seven reasons testing organizations take the open source automation route rather than the traditional automation frameworks.
The cost of ownership for an open-source test automation framework is considerably lower than for regular testing tools. The major advantage of Open-source is low licensing costs and fairly minimal hardware requirements. Furthermore, testing components are more easily reusable, and their high degree of scalability ensures that they can easily manage load and performance testing. Organizations can also make use of flexible pricing plans that allow testers to adjust their total cloud storage according to their specific testing needs.
