PractiTest's New Update for Software Testing Management to Improve Quality and Visibility

New management product captures manual and automated testing, offering real-time insights, improved processes, and dashboards for R&D teams and managers. 

PractiTest announced the general availability launch of its test automation management solution. Per the company, the offering is the only Application Lifecycle Management tool on the market that combines the management of scripted, exploratory, and automated testing in one place. PractiTest enables R&D teams and managers to see a product's full quality profile, benchmarking the current release to previous versions, and pointing at the areas that may require improvements before releasing them to the field. 

As a result of this new functionality, organizations can capture tests from traditional testing as well as those performed by developers and DevOps teams, eliminating duplication in testing. Using the PractiTest platform, technical and business decision-makers have the information they need to determine whether a product or feature is ready for full release or requires additional development.

"Agile and DevOps development coupled with an accelerated digital transformation has created an environment where decisions on feature releases need to be made on a daily basis. Developers test their software as it's developed, and test results are often scattered," said Yaniv Iny, CEO at PractiTest. "The advancements of our platform in manual and automated test management make it possible for decision-makers to review data from multiple sources on a single set of dashboards and make data-driven decisions." 

PractiTest's testing repository is designed to deliver value to businesses by collecting the results from automated and manual tests from R&D team members from across the company. The unified dashboard syncs processes and shields against the siloed data that can lead to blind spots. As a result, decision-makers have a comprehensive view of all testing activities, leading to insights, improved quality of software releases, and faster time to market once development has been completed.

"PractiTest's clear and organized dashboards gave us an overview across all development projects, providing us with real-time insights into our development," said Miroslav Ježek, Senior Test Automation Architect at Unicorn Systems who participated in early access versions of the system. "The platform's traceability matrix provided real tracking data, while its two-way integration with Jira enabled improved sharing with team members."

The platform offers several features. Data enters the system either manually or through automation components, such as API. Once in the platform, the data is viewed using flexible Smart Filters rather than folders, allowing it to be accessed by anyone using the system. This data approach also allows R&D developers, testers, and managers to view results for each different type of test, such as a view of all regression tests. As a result, the system improves organizational visibility into software readiness.
