5 Questions Release Managers Have About TestMonitor-min

An organization’s release manager is entrusted with the responsibility of keeping enterprise systems stable, patched, updated, and secure.

They are not only given the responsibility of evaluating new releases for their features, changes, and patches, but they are also expected to understand the potential impacts of any new enhancements or modifications to production systems across the enterprise. This makes their job almost as important as the initial launch of a project.

With so much responsibility, a large and diverse workload, and a number of demanding stakeholders, release managers frequently turn to industry-leading test management tools like TestMonitor to improve their productivity.

So if you are just beginning your search for a test management solution or if you are considering a change from your current methods to further streamline your work, here are some key questions you may have and how the team at TestMonitor would answer them.

How easy is it to track the wide range of tests I manage across my enterprise?

This is one of the main features of TestMonitor, and it makes it easy for release managers to monitor all testing activities across their entire workload or easily drill down into each test case, project by project. It also allows users to filter by requirement, milestone, or stage to review progress and prioritize resources more effectively. TestMonitor is even made to display links between risks, requirements, and outcomes, cutting down the research and administrative work that release managers have to do.

With TestMonitor, you can also easily manage the entire lifecycle of each of the requirements that influence the timing and scale of your releases, from initial intake and testing, to issue resolution and final close out. It also provides real-time insight into your testing status along the way, which is configurable to be shown by individual projects or across your entire portfolio.

What tools and accelerators are built in to make my job easier?

The team behind TestMonitor knows that you already have a great deal of responsibility on your shoulders, so we made it easy to create, manage, assign, and run test cases and monitor their progress throughout the lifecycle. You can also use preconfigured test cases or save your own configurations to a test case library for future use, saving you valuable set up time.

On the back end, TestMonitor also offers preconfigured and customizable reports to document performance, categorize outcomes, and publish and send to stakeholders.

How easy is it to configure and customize to fit my organization’s needs?

With pre-planned milestones, a test case library, and an intuitive user interface, TestMonitor makes structuring your test cases simple. And after test cases are structured, it's easy to configure notifications of key events, add and assign users, and generate custom reports as you need them.
