What is Test Management?

Test Management is the process that helps us to coordinate and organize all the testing operations (including Automated Testing, Load Testing, Acceptance Testing, and more), with the aim of collecting information about our product and process, and communicate this information via Reports and Dashboards so that our Stakeholders can then make their important decisions.

Test Management Tools

A Test Management Tool is a software system used to manage all your  tests and testing efforts (automated, load  or manual).  Sometimes these systems are also called QA Management platforms or ALM (Application Lifecycle Management) solutions.

It is not uncommon to see that Test Management platforms include modules that go further than testing.  They can have a Bug Tracking module to manage your bugs, features, etc.  They can also have a Requirement Management module, where you can keep track of your requirements or user stories and also generate end-to-end trace-ability of your process.  And other times you will see how the solution you are working with can also integrate to other products that help you manage these requirements and bugs.

Still, the main functionality of most Test Management Tools is to help the test manager to plan the work of his or her team, creating and managing manual test cases, organizing them based on the different products and features under test, assigning them to testers who then run them manually, and finally taking all these results in order to generate information to help his or her team make the correct decisions.
