Quality portal - Test manager moves to quality management centre

Quality portal - Test manager moves to quality management centre

October 23, 2018

Testersuite helps you as a test manager to get insight and grip on the test process. That is great, but the test process is of course not an isolated process. There are many dependencies and interfaces with other IT processes. Quality goes beyond the test process alone. It is therefore important that the test tooling you use responds to this. At Testersuite we understand this like no other. That is why you can use Testersuite as a Quality Portal.

Spider in the web

An important question for you as a test manager is how to become the spider in the web. Here, your tooling is decisive. After all, if you want to move to the centre of quality management, say the Quality Portal, then integration with other tools is a necessity. By integrating with other IT processes that determine the quality management, you increase the grip and control on the quality processes. Let's make a start by looking at what the playing field looks like and where the 'quick wins' are with the already existing links in Testersuite.

Quality Portal - the playing field

Which processes then determine the playing field within quality management?

To give you an impression, we have listed some examples :

  • Changes that are implemented using a change process must be tested
  • Requirements that are entered into the requirement management process are eventually realised and tested.
  • User-stories that are realised within scrum teams must be tested. Not only within the scrum team but also acceptance (testing) by the business is important.
  • Test findings from the test process must be resolved in the development (scrum) process

Testersuite is easy to link with tools used within other IT processes - as mentioned above. We offer standard links with frequently used tools. Examples include integration with TOPdesk and JIRA.

We are in the process of expanding to new standard interfaces, for example with Microsoft TFS and Servicenow. And that's not all. At Testersuite we also offer standard interfaces with tools for automated regression testing; and we are expanding this further...

REST API Testersuite

But fair is fair, given the number of tools in the market, we cannot offer standard interfaces for all the tools our customers use. However, we strive to make the integration with tools - for which we do not (yet) have a standard interface - easily accessible . That is why we have developed a REST API (Application Programming Interface) at Testersuite . This offers you as a test manager the possibility to make links with tools that you and/or your colleagues use in the test and quality process. Want to know how this works? Then get in touch with us. We will be happy to help you.

RES API explanation

What is a REST API?

We use a REST API to unlock data from Testersuite so that it can be used in other systems and/or tools. Of course, this also works the other way around. So data from other systems and/or tools can also be read into Testersuite. Freely translated, you can call it a technical interface between two or more systems. If you want to know more about how this REST API works, please contact with us.

What do you think?

A mature testing process does not mean that you have grown . We tell our customers this, but we also apply it to ourselves. It is not a coincidence that more and more quality managers are also adapting to the modern test process. We see a development in terms of shift from mature test management to quality management; or if you like to the Quality Portal. That is why we at Testersuite continue to develop.

It is therefore very important for us to get in touch with you as a test manager. We like to hear your opinion and your vision on the testing profession. We have had some great conversations with test managers at Radboud UMC and Action. Do you want to let us know what you think or do you want to know more about Testersuite? Or maybe you would like to be considered for a 'Let's talk about test'? Please contact us via this link.
