How to jumpstart success with qTest agile test management

By Jennifer Fletcher, Education Manager, AMS, Academy Team 

We’ve noticed a surge of interest in Tricentis qTest lately, with centralized test management being key in facilitating collaboration, increasing efficiency, and accelerating testing cycles. qTest is an extremely flexible and extensible tool that an increasing number of quality leaders are adopting, from Dell to Guardian to McKesson.

Its versatility is a huge benefit when you’re looking for a solution that supports your specific quality needs and integrates seamlessly with your best-of-breed DevOps toolchain. But if you’re new to qTest, all the different options might seem a bit overwhelming at first.

To help you navigate the path to becoming a qTest pro, we’ve gathered a set of resources that have enabled hundreds of teams to achieve their initial goals, fast. This includes a certification program, video guides, and more!
