Starz Revs Up Testing inside Jira


Leading Media Group Achieves Test Management Efficiencies with Zephyr for JIRA

Most Americans are familiar with Starz, or at least with their flagship channels, STARZ®, ENCORE®, and MOVIEPLEX®. Starz is a leading integrated global media and entertainment company. As a leading provider of premium subscription video programming, the company’s channels air more than 1,000 movies a month and are complimented by their On Demand and authenticated online offerings STARZ PLAY, ENCORE PLAY, and MOVIEPLEX PLAY.

After conducting a thorough evaluation of various test management solutions, Starz selected Zephyr for JIRA to redefine their testing process across its growing software project team.

"Almost everyone was using something a little different. Spreadsheets were very common, Word documents were very common, and we did not have a formal tool that anyone was using. There are some projects that have no documentation." said Starz’s Manager of Software QA, Mike Waldron. "One of the biggest benefits of Zephyr, in my opinion, was providing visibility and transparency of the QA process to the entire development organization."
