As I mentioned earlier, before we were able to finalize our new development environment we were gobbled up (acquired) by another company, about 4 times the size of our group.
In the area of issue tracking, the bigger company was using TestDirector, with some customizations, but actually their processes were quite simplistic, and weren’t enabling a truly effective R&D; process.
For Test case management, they are using plain old Word/Excel but are now open to other options.
In the area of SCM btw both companies were using good ol’ CVS and were quite sick of it. more on that later…
With this as the baseline, upcoming posts will try to describe the process for integrating SCM, Issue Tracking and choosing a Test Case Management solution agreeable and effective to all.
