QMetry, a premier provider of Test Management solutions today announced the latest release of its award-winning Test Management Platform. QMetry 5.4 focuses on improvements for teams using Agile methodologies, as well as enhancements in its Integration capabilities with ALM products and in the Reporting capabilities embedded in the platform.

QMetry 5.4 improves its archiving feature with the ability to easily migrate backlogs from one release to another. Further, both Releases and Cycles can now be locked to enable teams to freeze activity at certain checkpoints and thereby isolate test artifacts and results. There is also easy access to a CI module via a link to Jenkins that enables QA teams to have a unified and consistent view of relevant testing information.

With QMetry’s Continuous Testing feature, organizations using Agile development practices can test each iteration, or “build”, that comes out of development. Development groups may deliver to QA multiple increments, builds, or “Drops” in a given week. With Version 5.4 QMetry adds the ability of QA organizations to assign default drops per cycle and/or per QA role.

Reporting capabilities have always been one of QMetry’s strengths. Version 5.4 includes many enhancements including better filtering capabilities for Testcase Execution reports, ability to sort the Timesheet report by project, ability to locate uncovered requirements inside projects, an improved report to compare Test Case results across platforms, and an enhanced ‘My Assignments’ Dashboard that gives users unified view of all their assignments.

QMetry has always been one of the easiest to use tools in the industry and Version 5.4 makes it even easier by providing more in-context help and an improved startup wizard that help QA teams get better acclimated to the product’s functionality in a short amount of time. A quick-start guide has also been introduced to enable Quality Assurance teams to begin creating and importing content like Test Cases and Requirements.

A complete list of additions, enhancements and bug fixes can be found on the Release Notes page on QMetry’s Website.

“Agile shops continue to proliferate in the Software industry and leading-edge Testing products like QMetry have to be cognizant of the need to effectively test software products that change in small iterations” said David Silva, Product Manager at QMetry. “QMetry 5.4 also includes numerous improvements to our core reporting and integration capabilities and this is largely in response to the needs our customers and the rapidly growing Test Management market as a whole”.
