Why Read This Report

As your developers shift to Agile practices, they will invariably perform more testing themselves. So where does that leave your quality assurance (QA) professionals? They need to adapt by getting deeply involved in the daily operations of the development team. Advanced practices like test-driven development, increased testing automation, and continuous build and integration make a significant impact on the day-to-day activities of both developers and testers. These shifts in testing practices also change how development teams select testing tools: Developers want tools that easily plug into their integrated development environments (IDEs), while QA and other software professionals prefer tools that offer a higher level of abstraction and are easy to use. This report details how Agile teams are revamping their testing tool strategy to work well in an Agile development context.
