Executive Summary

Agile software development is quickly becoming the preferred way to build mission-critical software systems. However, if it is not implemented properly customers can run the risk of increasing costs and loss of quality instead of making teams more effective.

There are frequently challenges among stakeholders, problems with communication, compressed schedules, and various types of testing each with its own set of requirements, schedules, and procedures. The complexity of testing is increasing as applications themselves become more complex and initial testing is increasingly difficult?trying to run all these tests in an agile environment compounds the problem even further. By defining dependencies among tests you can realistically emulate real-life business processes and make it easier to maintain and reuse the tests. The HP Quality Center suite provides real-time visibility of requirements coverage and associated defects to evaluate quality and business risk. Multi-dimensional traceability is supported between user stories, tests and defects, across releases and iterations. When a user story changes, a change impact report provides visibility into the other assets affected, enabling you to avoid a full regression test after each change.

Dispersed teams also receive prompt notification of any changes that might impact their own tasks. HP Quality Center allows you to enhance your application development processes to take advantage of the benefits of agile. Use HP Quality Center to get flexible.
