What to automate when doing Test Automation?

Its hard to determine what is a “Best Practice” (And I do not believe in a general “Best Practice”) in this selecting automated testing candidates, since many aspects of software/hardware/Data/Conditions influencing the test,
However there are some general reasoning which could be applied when selecting candidates for automation.
There are generics, such as highly repetitive tasks that have low return or have standard results which make good candidates for automation. Other aspects of the environment are very much subjective, and it is clear to the business what areas would best to automate.

It might not possible to automate everything in the Software; Or.. It is definitely not feasible. But then again. It is not possible to test everything manually either.
Choosing what to automate and what not to is a cooperation between the test lead and the test automation developer.

Requirements for a test Automation Tool

Talking about different tools are often talking all the attention in the process of getting test automation founded in an organization. Normally there already a preferred vendor. So therefore their tool is picked to be the best. Sometimes organization bother them selves with having an none objective consultant come visit. Just to tell them they are right (which is nice to hear of course).
But think a bit of how you process is, how your daily work is, how it ought to be. Do this in all levels of your testing organization.
