hp-qc-eapprove"We built our testing strategy around Quality Center because there’s simply nothing else like it on the market today. We have a complete project methodology that dictates proper testing procedures, and Quality Center is an integral part of that. It’s the home for our tests and the place people go to run their tests; report and validate their results; provide statistics; and track issues."
-Art Murray, The Hershey Company

Overview

Your organization needs the right software testing tools to deploy high-quality applications quickly and effectively.

HP Quality Center offers a single, web-based application that supports all essential aspects of test management. It provides a consistent, repeatable process for gathering requirements, planning and scheduling tests, analyzing results and managing defects and issues. This software enables your organization to digitize specific quality processes and procedures within the larger application lifecycle. It also supports high levels of communication and collaboration among your IT team.

The HP Quality Center Agile Accelerator can be imported into Quality Center as a base project to manage both development and testing efforts within the same Quality Center project. It comes with pre-defined Agile process workflows, configurations and rules to help you manage projects driven by Agile methodology, pre-built Agile user roles and related privileges which are easy to configure, and supports Agile reports and graphs to track progress, burn-down, burn-up and velocity.
