What is Rational Test Workbench?

IBM Rational Test Workbench provides software testing tools supporting a DevOps approach: API testing, functional UI testing, performance testing and service virtualization. To achieve DevOps or continuous delivery, software testing teams must automate regression testing to reduce the risk of deploying poor quality software into production. Effective test automation should include application programming interface (API) testing, user interface testing and overall system testing. Rational Test Workbench helps you automate and run these tests earlier and more frequently to discover errors sooner—when they are less costly to fix.

Reduce error-prone, manual testing.

Automate all types of tests -- traditional functional/regression, mobile and integration technology, performance and scalability.

Simplify the team's user experience.

Fully-integrated authoring environment provides a consistent user experience across a variety of domains.

Find defects when they cost less to fix.

Don't wait for everything to be available to start testing, create virtual components and start testing right away.

Work with your current tools.

Integrate with a variety of open source and non-IBM tools to create test scenarios that include Selenium tests and span mobile, web, and traditional desktop apps.

Improve quality.

Integrate with IBM Rational Quality Manager to improve the return of test efforts, pairing comprehensive test automation with end-to-end quality management.
