test management overview
Test Management Overview


  • “Manage and measure the application delivery process from a quality perspective”


  • Validate application functions against the functional

specification, i.e., functions yield the expected results?

  • Report and track defects
  • Measure test coverage and track application quality
what is test management tool
What isTest Management Tool
  • Test Management Tool is a repository.
  • It is meant for storing Requirements, Test Scenarios, Test Cases and Defects.
  • Use of Test Management Tool tools reduces the reporting time as well as the cost.
why test management tool
Why Test Management Tool
  • Avoid the errors that human make when they compile reports received from various people.
  • The tool captures all the information entered by the users and gives the report to the management instantaneously.
  • Sends mail or trigger an alert based on the type of data captured by the end user.
  • Customizable to the need of the organization

benefits of test management tool
Benefits of Test Management Tool
  • More consistent

  • Traceability Matrix
  • Managing Change Request
  • Needs discipline in entry otherwise the report will go havoc.
  • The tool maintains history and hence one cannot cook-up data – hence more compliance is required
what are the different tools available in the market for functional testing
