Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) November 21, 2011
QMetry, a leading provider of software quality management solutions, today announced a major update to its advanced test management platform, which will help agile development teams to bring newer efficiencies to their testing processes. The update will also enhance collaboration and reduce the development time, regardless of the SDLC process. In addition, the improved integration capabilities will help QA groups to improve the ROI on their existing ALM tools.
“You don’t need to scrap your existing ALM tools”, emphasized David Silva, Product manager at QMetry “QMetry 5.0 provides seamless integration with almost all popular defect management and test automation tools. Our goal is to help you leverage your existing tool investments”.
QMetry 5.0 adds many new features to give QA groups more flexibility. QMetry’s new drop feature allows QA groups to quickly add a new “drop” at the time of testing. “Many organizations, agile and otherwise, receive many iterations of software weekly and sometimes daily and want to track them as part of one development or test cycle. Our new 'Drop' feature allows you to do that,” added Silva "whether you are testing a new code drop, bios version, development build, or patch your QA group can quickly test it and view the results either separately or cumulatively.”
QMetry 5.0 now allows QA groups to test against specific versions of a Test Case. This will enable them to test a patch against an old version of the test case.
The new version also helps QA groups better organize their Test Cases and Requirements by organizing them at a project, release, and cycle level. In addition, groups that use agile methodology can store unscheduled Test Cases and Requirements in the backlog to be quickly accessed and reviewed with the next cycle or sprint.
QMetry 5.0 also includes further improvements on its industry leading bi-directional JIRA integration. This will allow users to create or link existing issues from QMetry as soon as they discover them, or pull issues from JIRA as Test Cases or Requirements through QMetry’s ‘Advanced Search Query’. Users can also view and create Test Cases and Requirements from QMetry directly in JIRA. This will save developer’s time logging in and learning a new tool, and they will be able to view the data they need where they need it.
In addition to QMetry Professional version 5.0 also introduces two new product Editions: QMetry Core for the smaller organizations looking for a powerful streamlined version; and QMetry Enterprise a more robust edition for the larger organizations. QMetry Core is SaaS only and is available for evaluation now with a release date of December 5th. QMetry Enterprise is SaaS as well as On Premise and is in beta for a Q1 of 2012 release.
