Ascert has strengthened its commitment to HP Quality Center integration by releasing a new direct export feature for its VersaTest product line. This newest feature further extends the testing capabilities of Quality Center users by allowing test cases and results from the VersaTest Automator product to be moved to their Quality Center environment for storage, without requiring administrative privileges on the local machine in order to in install client software.
Ascert’s VersaTest Automator Plug-in for HP Quality Center already allows Quality Center users to define, execute and store the results of automated test plans executed by VersaTest Automator from the Quality Center interface. Some Quality Center implementations, however, are used primarily as testing result repositories and the Quality Center product does not currently provide a way to partition users into groups with the ability to only install plug-ins that are of interest to them. This means that Quality Center users must install all plug-ins, whether they are relevant to the user or not. For large organizations with global Quality Center installations this is untenable - updating just one plug-in can trigger thousands of worldwide downloads massively overloading networks and causing huge headaches for server and desktop administration staff.
"Many of our VersaTest users are happy with the plug-in architecture supplied by Quality Center but for some of our large accounts it presents challenges,” said Rob Walker, Managing Partner at Ascert. “The new export features Ascert has developed offers all the same benefits of the current Quality Center plug-in but with none of the barriers. Ascert continues to lead the way in terms of open integration with leading tools such as Quality Center, and this new feature is further evidence of our commitment to providing the best tools and functionality to the testing community.”
With the new VersaTest Quality Center Export feature comes a different and altogether simpler way of working: define and run your tests within VersaTest, and when you have results that you need to publish simply export them to one or more Quality Center servers. The export function is directly available from the normal VersaTest browser interface, no client software needs to be installed, and no admin privileges are needed on the local machine.
Quality Center Export is available with VersaTest Automator version 1.2. For more information on the Quality Center Export or the latest version of VersaTest Automator contact your local Ascert office.
