    Improving QA collaboration - getting the entire project team involved, Free Webinar: Tuesday, March 19, 2013, 8am PST

    The various stages of application development and release are no longer silo'd tasks (they should have never been, in our opinion). Today, QA is a part of a release cycle that is usually a few weeks long if not a few days long. In such focused, compressed development environments, it is crucial that all members of the project team - the project managers, business analysts, developers, QA, release team and executive mgmt - have real-time visibility on the progress of testing so that the team as whole can make critical business decisions accurately.


    If your current test management system has your QA team stuck in a silo, leaves a significant burden on your QA managers and leads to update various project team members manually and makes it cumbersome for the QA team to easily share test assets, attend this 30 minute webinar to see how Zephyr Enterprise Test Management not only significantly increases productivity of your QA team, but also engages the entire project team.

    This webinar is for Test Leads that need help creating a test plan, assigning testcases, and executing tests. An effective test plan lets you specify what you want to test and how to run those tests. We will cover real world examples of how project teams create test plans, assign those tests, and track them through execution. Sign up for this webinar to see how a test plan can be applied to a specific iteration of your project, or set a default test suite for your testcases, and/or create a test suite hierarchy.

    Process Compression in the Mobile App Delivery Cycle, Free Webinar: December 6, 2012, 10:00am PST

    Automation isn't an option for continuous mobile development - its a requirement. Delivery deadlines come faster, yet test matrices get deeper. Teams must cover different use-cases, devices, mobile operating systems and browsers, so determining what to automate first is the challenge.

    Atlassian, Zephyr and SOASTA are at the leading edge of process compression - optimizing and automating SDLC tasks. Whether automating builds, streamlining the feedback loop between Dev and Test, or accelerating test automation and performance testing, you can start saving time today.

    Where Agile Testing and Test Management Collide, Zephyr and PushToTest Webinar, Jun 14, 2011

    Know what happens when you taste 99% pure chocolate? The taste is so powerful it can be unpleasant. The same is true about agile software development lifecycle (SDLC) methodology and testing. Between Scrum Masters, schedules, specifications, requirements, sprints, test first, and user stories, many forms of testing - including load and performance testing, stress testing, and integration testing - can get lost.

    Join Frank Cohen, Keith Cook and Sanjay Zalavadia to learn a new testing approach that will change your world view on how you do testing today. Frank will explain how to repurpose your User Acceptance Testing (UAT) efforts to surface and solve performance bottlenecks and functional issues. These issues are normally caught after you release!

    Keith and Sanjay will explain how to apply this new testing approach while managing a distributed team of software developers, testers and IT managers. They will show the best practices for test success and an easier and less costly way to manage your test efforts and enable you to do more testing in the same amount of time.

    The results are a delicious chocolate taste and happy customers, partners, and employees!

    Zephyr and JIRA for Test Management, Atlassian Webinar, Jan 18, 2011

    Zephyr and its optimized, true 2-way integration with JIRA provides teams with more testing time. With Zephyr and JIRA, testers will be able to do everything they need to do with JIRA from within Zephyr; submit, search, assign, modify, etc. Testers no longer need to toggle between multiple apps and reorient themselves every time. Plus, all JIRA issue metrics are inherited into the Zephyr dashboard which offers software teams a holistic, consolidated view of all their testing assets dynamically and in real-time; issues, test cases, documentation (incl. Confluence), requirements (incl. Greenhopper), test automation, as well as full traceability.

    From an administrative database perspective, Zephyr uses the JIRA database - no duplicating of the database. This architecture means accuracy and provides teams with more testing time rather than worrying about synching, end user duplication errors, conflicts and other pitfalls.
