Real-Time Test Management
Zephyr Enterprise Edition is a real-time test management platform that manages all aspects associated with software quality; integrates various test tools and systems, offers global access, fosters collaboration and provides management visibility. Zephyr Enterprise Edition is best suited for departments and enterprises that have mature processes, run multiple projects in parallel with very structured testing cycles, and a lot of automated and/or manual testing.
Zephyr Enterprise Edition has best-of-class integration with JIRA 4 and 5, either Download or JIRA On-Demand.
Are these some of your challenges?
- Need help standardizing manual and automated test processes?
- Are you having problems standardizing your process?
- Having issues with communicating across multiple project teams?
- Are you having issues with updating stakeholders in a timely fashion?
- Need a quick and easy way to reuse historical testing information?
- Spending more than 1 minute a day trying to figure out your testing progress?
- Having a hard time trying to measure quality of your software builds?
Zephyr's Enterprise Edition is unlike any test management solution you've seen before. It provides all the rich functionality QA teams and testers need to create and execute testcases with less manual effort, allowing more time for testing. And it provides managers with push-based, real-time metrics to make critical business decisions based on informed quality intelligence.Zephyr uses the concept of contextual release spaces. All of your testing assets are organized by Projects, and then further organized into Releases/Iterations/Sprints. These contextual spaces contain all the requirements, testcases, schedules, assignments, results, reports, metrics and documents specific to that testing lifecycle. Testcases are reusable across multiple projects and releases.
Desktops & Dashboards
Every user role has a customized Testing Desktop with relevant applications that allow them to do their jobs more efficiently. They can all share data from a centralized repository on the Zephyr server and communicate via a collaborative backbone. Dashboards are real-time, keeping the whole company updated on every aspect of testing and product quality.
People & Projects
Manage all aspects of your team. Each member gets access to their personal Test Desktop based on their role and assignment. Define projects regardless of test methodology and provide as much or as little visibility to others in the organization. This automatically creates contextual project spaces in which you can set up multiple Releases or Sprints.
Creation & Execution
Define the Repository structure for a specific Release or Sprint and re-use testcases from other Projects or Releases with drag and drop capability. Import Testcases or create and edit testcases directly within Zephyr. Based off of the test run created by the Execution Scheduling and Assignment module, the Test Case Execution application allows testers to run both manual and automated tests from one place.
Metrics, Trend Analysis, Custom Reports
Real time status updates from various activities (creation, execution, defects, requirements) are shown in detailed drill-down, out-of-the-box metrics and in Project Dashboards. Using the Trend Analysis engine allows you to view historical trends for Testcase creation, execution, and defects across the entire span of a Release cycle, or for specific time periods. Define custom reports and export in a variety of formats.
Using ZBot and ZIP technologies, Zephyr not only integrates with automation tools - commercial, open source, or home grown - but also provides metrics and reports on automated versus manual tests across the entire test suite. Leverage your existing investments in automation and also track and report on both manual and automation testing from one place.
Planning & Scheduling
Create and organize your test requirements, map detailed testcases and link them to existing automation scripts. Build dynamic and visual schedules, define software builds and test environments, quickly grab testcases to be run in each phase and assign them to testers - all from a single, intuitive screen. Build a Test Case Repository tree to incorporate various kinds of tests that will be run based upon their test plans.
The faster you get a defect into the system, the sooner a Developer can start fixing it. With real-time, two-way integration to leading defect tracking systems such as JIRA or Bugzilla, Zephyr not only makes it easy for defects to be created, modified, updated, exported and printed, it also displays them in drill-down project dashboards for up to the minute quality analysis.
