IBM Engineering Test Management (ETM)

What it can do for your business

IBM® Engineering Test Management™ is a collaborative, web-based, quality management solution that offers comprehensive test planning and test asset management from requirements to defects. Built on the Jazz platform, it enables teams to seamlessly share information. It uses automation to speed project schedules and report on metrics for informed release decisions. It can also be purchased as part of the Collaborative Lifecycle Management solution—a set of seamlessly integrated tools: IBM Rational Team Concert, IBM Engineering Test Management, and IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation.


Feature spotlights

Requirement tools integration

Engineering Test Management works with the Rational DOORS Next Generation requirement management tool. You can link test cases and mark them as suspect whenever requirements are modified.

Automation tools integration

Engineering Test Management integrates with many test automation tools including Rational Functional Tester. Execute tests with all kinds of tools and collect test results—all from a central location.

Comprehensive test plans

Test plans clearly describe project quality goals and exit criteria, while tracking responsibilities and prioritized items for verification and validation.

Communications support

Support communication among teams that are geographically dispersed using features such as event feeds, integrated chat, review, and approval, and automated traceability.

Advanced reporting capabilities

Address the needs and concerns of quality managers, business analysts, and release management using advanced reporting capabilities, making it easier to assess readiness for delivery.

Risk-based testing

Provides risk-based testing for prioritizing the features and functions to be tested based on importance and likelihood or impact of failure, supporting risk management best practices.
