What is Rational Test Workbench?

IBM Rational Test Workbench provides software testing tools to support a DevOps approach: API testing, functional UI testing, performance testing and service virtualization. It helps you automate and run tests earlier and more frequently to discover errors sooner—when they are less costly to fix.

IBM also provides a new bundled offering under a new consumption model that changes the way you can use and deploy DevOps software. The new offering helps simplify your planning for adoption and growth of critical IBM DevOps products. Read more in the solution brief below.
