Brought to you by the Vivit Software Lifecycle Integration SIG

If your Dev teams are storing their requirements as User Stories in one tool and your QA teams are storing their Test Cases in HPE ALM, then chances are you have no traceability between the two.  And what about Test Defects created in HPE ALM?  How can you trace those back to the original User Story requirement?  I’ll show you how we solved this dilemma using Tasktop to synchronize User Stories to HPE ALM Requirements, pass the User Story id throughout the HPE ALM lifecycle from Requirement to traced Test Case to linked Defect, and how we will synchronize the Test Defects back to our Dev tool and link them back to the User Story for full round trip traceability.  

This session is suitable for all levels including VPs, Directors, Dev and QA managers, practitioners, and technical resources.  We will cover the following:
  • Why Requirement and Defect traceability is important to us
  • The challenges faced that prompted our solution
  • Detailed explanation of how we implemented the solution
  • The benefits realized
