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

Creates Fully Integrated Toolchain That Accelerates Software Delivery and Improves Traceability

 

VANCOUVER, BC, May 7, 2019 Tasktop, 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.
