Our creative talents have been at work for a while on this and finally it has arrived! A short,fun-filled video – ‘QMetry in 2 minutes‘- that takes a lilting look at QMetry and the problems it is addressing. Essentially, learning about us through content that is less corporate in tone.
The video starts off addressing the daily pains of QA practitioners, and then looks at ways in which QMetry mitigates these. But enough said! A picture is worth a thousand words and a video is worth much more.
Without further ado, here’s the Video
Our Webinar on Continuous Testing was a great forum for Agile practitioners to learn more about key trends in the industry. This well-attended Webinar touched upon various topics germane to Agile Testing: Increased Collaboration between Developers and Testers, Increased Automation, Continuous Testing, Culture changes that foster more Agile Testing, and also on QMetry’s Drop/Build feature that enables QA teams to test continuously and in small iterations.
The Recorded Webinar can be found on our Webinar Page. As can our newly created Video on Continuous Testing. Happy Viewing!

We’re looking forward with great anticipation for the Webinar – ‘Continuous Testing in an Agile World’ that we are hosting with Forrester and Rally on April 24. There’s still a few seats left – so Register quickly.
At the risk of stealing some of the thunder of our esteemed panelists, we’re taking some liberty to disclose what will be presented. We hope that this will pique your interest enough to attend.
Diego Lo Giudice from Forrester will be talking about fundamental process changes in the Testing world that are breaking down traditional silos like TCoEs (Testing Centers of Excellence). Rally will chime in with their significant experiences in the Agile industry and how Testing is perceived by Agile practitioners. They will also be talking about the Rally-QMetry integration.
Finally, our CTO, Manish Mathuria will be talking about features like Drops and the integration with Jenkins; and how these capabilities make it significantly easier for Agile Teams to Test (in a Continuous fashion) software that gets built in short, quick increments.
We look forward to this exciting event and hope you can attend.
We’d like to spend a quick moment congratulating our technology partner, Rally Software, for their successful debut on the NYSE. Their listing is an endorsement of their impressive growth, but also a proxy of the market belief in the fast-growing ALM industry especially as it applies to ‘Agile shops’.
Our integration with Rally enables these Agile shops to import User Stories into QMetry and associate these with Test Cases. These Test Cases can in turn be associated with Platforms (browsers, tablets, mobile devices) and can be executed manually or by invoking Automation scripts. The results can be aggregated through Dashboards and Custom Reports to give important insights like the extent of Requirements Coverage, and to quickly identify Requirements that have not been covered by any Test Cases.
Further in Release 5.4, we have taken a big step towards Continuous Testing by including a link to Jenkins from right within QMetry and introducing the ability to combine the results sent back with other Test Case Results to give a unified and comprehensive view of the Testing cycle.
We are holding a Webinar on April 24 with Rally and Forrester to talk more about Continuous Testing. Register Now to learn more about these exciting developments in Testing.
Our partner ecosystem continues to grow rapidly and, better, in different geographies.Today, we are happy to Welcome Techtrust to our family of partners.
Techtrust is an ‘old hand’ at distributing QA systems in India. We discovered that they were a Reseller for one of our Technology partners – QFS (for the QF-Test automation platform) and it took no time to realize the obvious synergies in partnering together. And Techtrust was more than happy to partner with us – especially after learning about our integration with QFS and the inherently complementary way in which Test Management products couple with Test Automation platforms.
Of course, this is doubly exciting given the fact that Techtrust has significant reach in India – easily one of the fastest-growing and vibrant markets for technology products in the World. We are thrilled to partner with a leading brand in this market.
We would like to invite all of you to a Live 60-minute Webinar on Agile Testing on April 24.
And we’ve lined up some luminaries from the ALM industries to shed light, both from a research and a product perspective on this topic. Our CTO, Manish Mahuria along with Stephen Younge from Rally Software and Diego Lo Giudice from Forrester Research will be joining us and discussing this fast-changing paradigm in the Testing Industry.
The Webinar will cover issues like:
- How Agile disrupts Testing as we know it
- The New Normal: Continuous Testing
- What needs to change in ALM and Testing Tools
- How products from QMetry and Rally are addressing the changing needs of the market.

Product releases are always an exciting time at QMetry. And it’s no different this time. Our latest release, QMetry 5.4, has tons of new, exciting and innovative features designed to help QA teams further shorten their testing cycles and play an even more pivotal role in ensuring that their companies produce Enterprise-grade applications.
QMetry 5.4 has quite a few enhancements, and some bug fixes. The enhancements are in a few large groups:
Agile capabilities: As Agile shops continue to proliferate and Agile Testing becomes mainstream, we’ve continued to innovate on our Continuous Testing Capabilities. Now QA groups can assign default drops per cycle or by QA role.
Reporting: Reporting has always been one of our strengths and we’re further capitalizing on this key differentiator by enhancing this capability by introducing newer filtering capabilities, better sorting abilities, and a better Dashboard view to help users consume all this information through a powerful graphical interface.
Usability: Our customers, prospects and partners have asked for certain improvements to our UI and Help feature to enable end-users to use QMetry more effectively. Correspondingly, we’ve made it much easier to get started by creating or importing Test Cases and Requirements; and also have new startup wizards to help you through this process.

Formed in 1965, the CSI has been instrumental in guiding the Indian IT industry down the right path since its formative years. Recently they bestowed upon QMetry the first place in a Young IT Professional Award for 2012.
Our team is immensely thrilled to receive this award. It is definitely gratifying to receive an award of this prestige by defeating companies of high pedigree in one of the largest and most vibrant software industry in the world.
A special Thanks and Congratulations to members of our India team for their tireless work in helping us achieve this success.
In 1987, the President of the USA, Ronald Reagan made a classical ‘Tear Down that Wall’ remark at Brandenburg Gate in Germany. The rhetoric was aimed at Communist Governments that tried to divide the Democratic World from their own enclaves.
Today, that rhetoric should be addressed to CTO’s of organizations that refuse to embrace the critical nature of Testing in the Software Life Cycle. In a world increasingly characterized by Agile development practices, the Testing function is increasingly getting transformed from a peripheral, end-of-cycle, and of-neglected activity to a mission-critical and brand-building function that is now central to good software development.
Like any disruptive force, the Agile movement will engender a cultural change in organizations that are successful at adopting the methodology.? Gone will be the days of Testing Centers of Excellence and the wait for coding to be completed before Testing commences. Instead, QA practitioners, will be deeply embedded into product teams and doing Exploratory Testing on newly created features.? And, by these activities they will ensure that the ROI on Enterprise-grade Test Management tools will be higher than ever.
Happy Agile Testing!
We’re happy to announce a new addition of NVP Software Consulting to our family of partners.
NVP is our first Canadian partner and we’re excited at the prospect of having an ally extend our reach there. As you might know, Canada is home to quite a few Testing professionals and home to notable industry events like Star Canada.
NVP advises companies on uncovering synergies and new efficiencies in their Test Management processes. And, they’re an old hand at this, having been in this business for more than 20 years.
