Tasktop’s Value Stream Integration Offering Adds Test Management for Improved Visibility into Coverage, Quality, Cost

Sponsored by Businesswire

the leader in Value Stream Integration, today announced that its
Integration Hub now includes test management integration capabilities to
meet the needs of modern test management.

According to Neelan Choksi, president and chief operating officer, “As
our customers are all trying to speed delivery of business value through
software, test automation has become an essential component in the race
to deliver quality software. Scaling Agile and DevOps has left
organizations challenged to bring together the requisite data across all
of the disparate testing tools to create a comprehensive picture of
product quality. Drawing on more than a decade of leadership in value
stream integration and Tasktop’s expertise in quality software delivery,
we are thrilled to announce the availability of test management support,
one of the most requested features by our customers. Now, Quality
Assurance leadership in the Global 5000 and the largest government
agencies can modernize the testing toolchain without losing visibility
into coverage, quality and cost.”

Tasktop initially introduced this capability for organizations using
Tricentis Tosca in conjunction with Micro Focus ALM or organizations
using multiple versions and variations of ALM. Tasktop performs
bi-directional data synchronization of test cases, test instances and
test runs between tools. It ultimately centralizes all test design and
execution data into a single ALM instance for comprehensive reporting
utilizing ALM’s strong dashboarding capabilities.

Tasktop designed the new integration in partnership with Tricentis.
Tasktop Integration Hub is the only solution to flow test results from
Tosca to ALM, creating the requisite multi-level hierarchical set of
test artifacts on-the-fly (tests, test steps, test runs, test results
and defects) that enables transferring this information from Tosca to
ALM for reporting.

The new offering is ideal for organizations regardless of where they are
on their test modernization journey. It is appropriate for those
introducing new tools for test automation; using one tool for test
management and test automation and another for defect management and
reporting; or employing multiple tool instances within a single
organization or across suppliers and subcontractors.

New test management benefits include the following:

  • Freedom to modernize: Organizations can modernize test
    management by adding new, specialized tools for test automation
    (Tricentis Tosca) to their existing manual testing infrastructure,
    ensuring visibility and control over product quality.
  • All-inclusive reporting: They can use familiar and preferred
    Micro Focus ALM reporting and dashboards for multi-source data.
  • Eliminate reporting delays: And they can now receive near
    real-time reports. This eliminates the prohibitively laborious effort
    of manual data entry or multi-source data manipulation (export/import,
    data alignment, manual mappings).

Tasktop’s test management capability is available immediately in Tasktop
Integration Hub Ultimate Edition.
