Contemporary testing techniques for the changing world
Creating high quality products has its own significant share of contribution from testing. In a rapidly changing world, organizations have to develop complex products with short development time frames. Coupled with it, if the products are released for end consumers which can range in millions; an organization has to be very careful about the quality of the releases.
The paradigm of testing is changing with these challenges and the roles and responsibilities of developers or testers are still evolving. An effective practice is to do the testing concurrently with development. This requires high degree of integration and communication between developers and testers.
The integrated requirements, quality, and test management solution from IBM Rational uses activity based workflows to guide projects throughout the entire application life cycle. Serving as the quality contract for the entire team, an automated workflow helps ensure that key stakeholder reviews, validations, sign-offs, and hand-offs do not fall through the cracks. With a centrally shared location for project artifacts, teams can better manage changing, dynamic information given complete, end-to-end traceability between requirements, build and test artifacts. Learn from this whitepaper, how a lifecycle approach to systems quality can be implemented.
