Global quality management needs l.jpg

Global Quality Management Needs:

  • Have more predictable software quality, schedules and costs

  • Increase collaboration across teams

  • Decrease the testing cycle (for faster releases)

  • Comply with Iterative/Agile development processes

  • Make effective & timely decisions

    • Trade-off decisions about quality, release schedule, resources allocation

    • Go/no go decisions


Addressing the global quality management needs l.jpg

Addressing the Global Quality Management Needs

  • With a global test management solution that:

    • Enables management to gain visibility into the testing process for effective decision making

    • Provides a central point of control for organizing and sharing information

    • Facilitates team collaboration

    • Builds new efficiencies that accelerates time-to- market

Global test management is a mechanism for companies to organize and optimize the testing process across teams, projects, locations, and departments.

It fosters collaboration and reusability of test assets.


The test management activities l.jpg

The Test Management Activities

Testing starts with requirements.

  • Requirements management is the process of gathering, organizing and tracking requirements documents throughout the project

    • Focus testing efforts

    • Allows testing teams to prioritize testing based on requirements/business priority/risk

Test plans contain test designs, test

Steps, and other test attributes

  • Who must test what and how

    • Set up the environment

    • Define test steps & procedures

    • Develop test design

    • Define test data

    • Design test architecture

  • Link test plans to requirements

Scheduling & execution of manual

and automated tests

  • Unit tests, Functional & Regression tests, and Load & Performance tests

    • Provides increased test coverage

    • Eliminates human error and provides consistency in testing, independent of who runs the tests

    • Tracks historical data on all test executions

Defect tracking and management

  • Process of reporting, tracking and analyzing issues throughout the software application lifecycle

    • Define workflow for audit trail

    • Automatically records and coordinates the resolution of defects
