Compuware Improves Application Quality with QACenter Enterprise

5/11/2004 - Compuware Corporation (NASDAQ: CPWR) announced the latest version of its functional testing suite of products, Compuware QACenter Enterprise Edition. This new version includes a release of TestPartner, version 5.2, which introduces features that accelerate the functional testing of complex Web, ERP and CRM applications. Also included is new support for testing Microsoft.NET, Java and SAP 6.20 GUI for Windows applications.

QACenter Enterprise Edition’s comprehensive platform and application support, along with its implementation of Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) scripting, uniquely meets the needs of all QA organizations--regardless of size, technology environment or skill sets. Enterprise Edition enables companies to build test assets early in the development cycle in order to find and fix quality issues before business-critical applications are deployed. Additionally, Enterprise Edition’s visual scripting and wizards allow less experienced QA staffers to execute application tests, while the power of the VBA scripting language meets the needs of advanced testers.

“MediNotes’ applications perform many complex tasks resulting in an elegant and useful interface for physicians and other busy medical professionals,” said Ronna Hills, Quality Assurance Manager, MediNotes. “QACenter Enterprise Edition helps us to really see what’s going within these complex applications--enabling us to make informed testing decisions quickly, confidently and with fewer resources that, essentially, multiplies the power of our QA team. Just as important, Compuware’s support was outstandingly responsive to our needs.”

New to QACenter Enterprise Edition
Enhancements to the TestPartner portion of QACenter Enterprise Edition ensure that thorough, effective functional testing meets business needs in spite of today’s shortened release cycles. In addition to increased platform and application support, product updates include extended support for executing legacy test assets and failed test checking capabilities that help organizations further validate application business transaction functionality, including:

“Automated testing is all about finding problems sooner in the development cycle, keeping costs lower, speeding up time-to-market and deploying applications with confidence,” said Mark Eshelby, Compuware Product Manager. “With TestPartner, QACenter Enterprise Edition not only offers an extensible, VBA-based tool that works for applications built in many different environments, but it also provides traceability for results to quickly pinpoint when and where the application failed.”

Pricing and availability
Compuware QACenter Enterprise Edition is available immediately. Pricing for the entire suite--including TestPartner along with test and data management, requirements management and defect tracking--begins at $6,500.
