Infostretch QMetry: Agile dev needs to ‘shift left’ & love test management

Infostretch has launched QMetry Test Manager for JIRA on the Atlassian Marketplace. The company itself is a Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Development methodologies software application development tools provider.

The software comes pre-integrated with Atlassian JIRA (essentially a project and issue tracking tool) and exists as an add-on to provide a test management capability to the JIRA environment.

About march! Shift Left!

QMetry Test Manager was built to help QA teams “Shift Left” i.e. to get involved earlier in the development cycle to build a test plan while continuously testing early development builds.

The software aims to provide an organised view of all aspects of testing, through customisable dashboards. For example, its “QA Director” view allows the software team to gain visibility into the whole health of a QA project.

Users can create and re-use modular test scenarios — QA Managers can make a change to just one test scenario or to replicate that globally and avoid a messy mass of clones.

“QMetry Test Manager for JIRA is also intelligent enough to recognise story details and will auto-suggest test scenarios that match your requirements — it supports a gradual evolution of test scenarios as stories evolve. The integration with JIRA Software gives enterprises an end-to-end solution from planning to delivery.  QMetry Test Manager for JIRA is available as a cost-effective deployment in the cloud and on-premises.  Users can sign up now from the Atlassian Marketplace,” said Rutesh Shah, chief executive officer and founder of Infostretch.

Shah further asserts that more often than not, Agile testing is the weak point of enterprises’ Agile initiatives. By creating this integration with JIRA Software and making Agile testing easier, Infostretch aims to turn that weakness into a strength.
