SQS-TEST/Professional 10.2 Test Suite Arrives

SQS Software Quality Systems has launched its SQS-TEST/Professional 10.2 test suite. The new suite offers features to indicate a "test preparation" stage and how many (and which) tasks are incomplete.

The newly augmented product also provides real-time visibility of the current tester's capacity, as well as the distribution of workload within a testing assignment. The new features provide "simple" access to data on test performance quality levels.

"The new test plans answer many of the questions a test manager will face during a project," said Vincenza Pignataro, CEO of Software Testing Products at SQS. "As the information [in the new product] is critical to testing project management, we have invested significantly in improving the test plan design function and the user interface."

In parallel, SQS has expanded the suite's multi-release testing features, enabling developers to merge test specifications of a software package, even where different versions are used. Test cases, test objects, and requirements from different versions can also now be compared directly with each other.

As stated, SQS has "improved" the graphical interface of its Test Log Editor to make it more user-friendly with step-by-step guides on how to conduct manual tests. It can be used independently of SQS-TEST/Professional as well as flexibly, at a range of locations.

Looking at the product from a higher level, SQS-TEST/Professional is essentially an integrated platform designed to support software system quality assurance. It supports the work of employees involved in testing and their roles via different layers and can be combined with tools published by other suppliers, as well as embedded in existing test processes and infrastructures. SQS says that it covers all tasks and stages of the software development process, from planning through to automation and monitoring.
