Sustainable Test Automation: From Garden to Ecosystem

Description:

Organizations invest in test automation to keep up with the pace in an Agile and DevOps world. 
Little do they realize that constant care is required to keep their gardens of automated tests green. Weeding and cultivating is necessary to maintain the added value of test automation. Why is this gardening so hard? Is it just a garden or is it more than that? Might it be a whole ecosystem with aspects that impact the approach of test automation?
