Catch Expands QA Management Capabilities With Release of Enterprise Tester 4.0(November 08, 2011)
AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/11 -- New features support entire quality ecosystem: QA managers, testers, development managers, product managers, and development executives.
Catch Limited (www.catchlimited.com) announced this week that it has released Enterprise Tester 4.0, a major upgrade to the flagship platform. With the introduction of the TQL query language, upgraded charting, and OpenSocial gadgets all participants in the quality ecosystem can now track the metrics they need.
"At Catch, we are all about quality", said CEO Bryce Day. "Quality is much broader than just the QA team. The quality ecosystem includes everyone that participates in the development process. Our new features provide insight into test progress and release readiness for QA managers, development managers, product managers, and executives. We also have features to support the ever-increasing complexity and scale that our customers are facing and features to support QA tester productivity. In the past 12 months we increased our customer base by over 100%. We have listened to our new customers and we have heard from our installed base. We are proud to be announcing Enterprise Tester 4.0 as the most mature and scalable Web 2.0 test manager on the market today."
Customers are already excited about Release 4.0, which was made available to the selected customers last week "With Enterprise Tester 4.0, Catch has created a very compelling and powerful test management solution that I believe rivals anything on the market today", said Bjorn Andersson, Sr. QA Manager. "With this new version they have taken a leap to surpass the big players in the space by offering easier and better reporting of test data, which affords me the capability to quickly and concisely report what my stakeholders want to see. The amount of development and introduction of new features to Enterprise Tester over the past year is nothing short of amazing and I truly look forward to see what the Catch team will do going forward."
Enterprise Tester 4.0 introduces TQL for queries, reporting and upgraded charting. EnterpriseTester now supports detailed views of the entire QA process, with customized views for the QA manager, the development manager, and executives who need to monitor progress. Custom reports and charts can be imported into JIRA, Confluence, Facebook, Google+, or any application that supports OpenSocial gadgets.
Enterprise Tester 4.0 contains dozens of new features to make testers more productive. Features such as bulk moving and nesting make it easier to organize test processes. Single and multi-step controls simplify moving between tests, and sorting on custom fields makes it easier to accommodate unique needs without having to export data.
Catch is an Atlassian Expert. Integration with Atlassian products is core to the Catch strategy, as illustrated in recent announcements of Enterprise Tester integration with Atlassian Bonfire and Atlassian OnDemand. With Release 4.0, Enterprise Tester integration with Atlassian's JIRA and Confluence is stronger than ever. Release 4.0 also continues the Catch end-to-end traceability story with integrations with Sparx Systems' Enterprise Architect, and Microsoft TFS.
Results from automated tools such as HP QTP, Selenium, and Rational Functional Tester are automatically integrated into test results through Catch's Enterprise Tester plugin, Duette.
Catch continues to add marquee customers, outpacing competitors. By increasing its customer base over 100% in the last 12 months, Catch is leading the next-generation market for test management.
