"can be ran from anywhere in the world" -- Yes, why anyone would want to outsource automation is beyond me.

Where I work they have been talking about automation for a while, but nothing to show for it so far. What they don't understand is you can't just brainstorm and then throw a project manager at it and then watch it finish. The development process is not automated! If they were good at the development process then many of the failed conventional (non-automated) projects would have finished successfully. An analogue is someone hearing of automated tests, and thinking that means you don't have to write the tests any more -- because it's automated.
