Seapine TestTrack TCM Streamlines QA, Expedites Delivery Lifecycle
Seapine Software addresses complexity of the testing process with a
test case management application that provides unique visibility and
control for quality assurance teams

BOSTON-September 12, 2006-As software applications become
increasingly complex and development schedules more aggressive, the
challenges facing quality assurance (QA) teams are expanding
proportionately. New software solutions and better practices,
including investing in the creation and management of well-documented
test cases, are becoming essential to maintaining quality.
Recognizing the vital role test case management (TCM) plays within
the software QA process, Seapine Software, a leading provider of
application lifecycle management (ALM) solutions, today introduced
TestTrack TCM.
This announcement was made during the SD Best Practices Conference &
Expo, which runs September 11-14 in Boston.

TestTrack TCM is a highly scalable, cross-platform client/server
solution that allows QA teams to plan, execute, and manage any
testing process. Built on the proven TestTrack architecture,
TestTrack TCM manages all facets of the testing process including
test case creation, scheduling, execution, measurement, and
reporting. TestTrack TCM helps QA teams formalize the testing process
and overcome barriers to creating well-documented test cases,
including lack of time and resources.

“Thorough test planning and test case creation are precursors to a
successful quality assurance effort. With application complexity
increasing, both in the number of features and supported operating
systems, and the need to support ‘software as a service,’ the number
of test cases required to completely test an application is growing
exponentially,” said Richard Riccetti, president and CEO, Seapine
Software. “TestTrack TCM gives QA managers a complete solution to
effectively plan the testing process and manage thousands of test
cases and the results of their execution.”

TestTrack TCM’s broad feature set facilitates collaboration,
streamlines process flow, and brings traceability to the testing
process. Its client/server architecture easily scales to handle the
largest testing efforts and includes features to securely support
geographically-distributed teams.

With TestTrack TCM, testing teams benefit from:

* Knowledge of what has been tested, what hasn’t, and the effort
required to finish the job

* More effective use of QA team resources and test assets

* Quicker product releases due to the streamlined interaction between
QA and development

* Audit readiness through demonstrated and repeatable testing
processes and accurate test records

* Improved estimation of future testing efforts

Proper process and a formalized testing practice are paramount to
software quality, no matter the size of the testing team,” added
Riccetti. “With TestTrack TCM, companies can better measure their QA
process, tools, and team performance, and implement the changes
necessary to improve product quality. TestTrack TCM can also
coordinate the move to automated testing, which is proven to lower
testing costs.”
