The focus of this thesis has been about automated testing in practice. Using testing tools is quite common phenomenon in software companies. A questionnaire about the use of testing tools in software quality assurance to investigate Norwegian software companies has been made. The questionnaire has been sent out to a number of Norwegian IT/software and non-IT/software companies to get feedback on their use of testing tools for projects and product development. Four interviews have been conducted to find out more about the real life practice of using testing tools in different companies. Quantitative Analysis has been used on the responses from the questionnaire and each response from the questionnaire have been statistically analyzed. The statistical analysis of the responses shows the percentage of how many people are using testing tools and why, who are still solely dependent on manual testing and why and how the software quality assurance testings is done. The main objective is to find out facts related to the research questions; the less practice of using testing tools in real life despite of its popularity in literature reviews and how the companies are following agile method and debugging at the same time.
