Where is the TLM heading?

Testing is no longer a click activity, it is more organized science. It has a structure and a method to it, doesn’t matter if it is a management of test cases, design, analysis or execution. Excels, Words and XMLs are getting out-of-date as the demands become more complex to manage and operate.

Enactment of cloud systems and virtual base demand businesses to push the limits and go beyond their ‘walls’ towards a virtual server world.

Thus, with such a quickly moving market, it is harder and harder for organizations to respond efficiently with legacy tools. So for brand-new software delivery, there is a need for a brand-new TLM and ALM tools. The application lifecycle paradigms differ from traditional to agile nature of this ALM and TLM market has a several varied tools.

There are plenty of TLM tools that need to integrate with each other smoothly.

These diverse tools could be performing defect management, automation, requirements management, change management, etc. Your TLM tool needs to be an open platform system tool that assimilates smoothly with this fluid environment.

It can be great if the test management solution grants an intelligent testing platform with add-ons for a vertical solution.

It should test and check any mobile app or website – native or hybrid across multiple devices and platforms such as iOS, Android, Windows or test interactions from any part of the world.
