Introducing the Essential Guide to Improving Software Quality with Data [New E-book]
Since our launch of Insights 2.0 in Fall 2016 we have received a lot of questions from our community around best practices and strategies for getting the most out of their testing metrics (Insights 2.0 gives testing teams a self-service business intelligence tool to consolidate, manage and analyze test metrics). In order to give these questions the answer, or better yet guide, they need we created a free 14 page guide, the Essential Guide to Improving Software Quality with Data and Analyticsto help walk through everything related to QA data and metrics. Including:
Breaking Down the Need for Analytics and Visibility in Software Testing
Getting Started with Metrics: 3 Steps to Ease the Transition
Building Your Reports: Top Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Metrics
Relying on Better Data to Create Better Software
Our hope is that this guide will serve as a place for individuals to look for inspiration, strategy, and best practices for building out a strategy to measure and understand the story in all the data that’s available to them.
In software testing, the need for consolidated, meaningful test metrics has never been greater. As both the pace of development and the cost of delivering poor quality software increase, we need these metrics to help us test smarter, better, and faster.
