Use suitable tools to make your projects transparent and fully traceable – throughout all phases
For the development, testing and operation of software, a variety of tools are used to support and document the associated activities. Some important categories of tools are:
- Application Lifecycle Management (ALM): ALM describes the path of a software through all phases of the software lifecycle from the collection of requirements to the operation of the software. Typically, ALM includes the categories listed below or at least can be integrated.
- Requirements management: This includes the structured collection and management of requirements and ideally combines this with traceability to the functions and artefacts implemented in the development process.
- Test management: Test management includes all activities for planning and steering as well as controlling test activities (for details, see the link to the insert test management page).
- Error management: The structured recording and processing of errors (“bugs”) is the task of error management.
- Test automation: This term covers tools and frameworks for automated software testing (for details see insert link to the test automation page).
- Code analysis: These are tools that can be used to perform static code analysis. The source code is subjected to a series of formal checks that allow certain types of errors to be detected even before the software in question is checked by further (manual) testing (for details, see the link to the insert software quality page).
The selection and introduction of a suitable tool is of great importance for the efficiency and quality of the development and testing process as well as the operation of software. Benefit from our expertise in this area.
