MKS has pre-built integrations into many testing tools, says MKS spokesman Scott O'Neill.
"We have a framework for connecting to commercial, off-the-shelf, and bespoke test automation tools that rolls up into test management capabilities," he
"We have requirements management on the front-end, and that links to the source code developed on iSeries or elsewhere.
So you're doing test case authoring and saying 'Here's all the things we need to test,' and that then feeds into the automated test tools."
has come a long way from the early days of basic source code management to the current days of comprehensive ALM.
The addition of test case management capabilities follows moves MKS
has made recently to bolster its ALM capabilities with requirements planning and bug tracking (through a partnership with BMC Software), and test case management is one of the last gaps to be filled in MKS' quest to provide an end-to-end ALM solution, according to O'Neill
"Looking at the platform as a whole, we've now got soup-to-nuts application lifecycle management, from requirements through development and testing on through release management," he
