Discover the power of connecting your test results and requirements.
Incorporate Test Management Throughout Product Development
Increases in product complexity calls for test case management to go beyond a simple pass or fail. Involving QA and engineering team members early in the product development lifecycle helps find and resolve issues earlier. Quality improvements mitigate risk while increasing confidence during product delivery.
Jama Connect™ Test Center natively enables Engineering and Quality Assurance teams to create, maintain and relate test cases to requirements and specifications, as well as execute manual testing.
Jama Connect integrates with top test automation solutions, such as: LDRA, Vector, qTest (QA Symphony), and TestRail. This allows QA and engineering teams to work in the tools they are most familiar with while ensuring all requirements are verified and validated and achieve complete traceability.
Validation and verification of requirements in complex systems demands speed, traceability, and collaboration.
Pitfalls of Ineffective Test Management
The standard test management process doesn’t provide full visibility to QA and other interested teams.
In product development, delivering quality products as fast as possible is critical. Revenue loss can occur from being late to market, missed opportunities caused by a late launch, and competitors seizing the opportunity of your product spending less time in the market.
One of the biggest bottlenecks lies in long testing cycles. In most companies, testers enter the product development process too late. This means they don’t have visibility into past decisions and are forced to catch up by digging for information from a variety of people and departments. The result is the inability to quickly mitigate issues during the development process, which leads to wasted resources, as well as delayed product launches.
Lack of Traceability
Testing is a key part of the product development cycle. In today’s world, the ability to create quality products depends on the ability to thoroughly test and validate requirements.
It can often be difficult to readily see how test cases are connected to the requirements they are testing. This makes the purpose of the test and the implications of each result less apparent, inhibiting a team’s ability to quickly make decisions and analyze test data.
Manual Consolidation of Multiple Tests
Test case management can easily become a convoluted process. Often tests are scattered across multiple systems and teams. QA teams may only see a fraction of all the requirements, exposed only to those they’re testing against. They may also only see tests required at that specific point in time, and not be privy to testing efforts planned before and after. The manual consolidation of these results from multiple tools and time periods adds risks to quality and jeopardizes compliance.
Confidently Confirm Product Quality
Sophisticated test management software empowers your team to develop quality products and meet customer demands.
Give your Quality Assurance (QA) teams the ability to create and organize test plans, test cases, dashboards, and reports to manage testing easily, in real time.
