Test Automation has become a commonly-used term in Application and Cloud companies. Software as a Service (SaaS) and Cloud-based applications dominate the product development landscape in the B2B and B2C markets. Test Automation in the form of continuous regression of these applications has become a widely-used practice in AGILE and Container-based Dev Ops environments.

This paper focuses on a different area of Test Automation: how to build the test lab infrastructure for a Lab as a Service (LaaS), or Lab Consolidation. Specifically, it discusses how to automate a test lab infrastructure, and ensure the proper “plumbing” is in place to maximize the value of your Lab as a Service (“LaaS”) or Lab Consolidation project.
