Agile, DevOps, and the drive towards “Continuous Everything” have dramatically accelerated the software development lifecycle. To keep pace, teams are adopting a diverse assortment of tools to automate and optimize the software delivery pipeline. In response, today’s toolchains now include best-of-breed tools that span numerous capabilities, product vendors, and team roles. The more effectively these tools integrate and interact, the more effectively team members can work and collaborate.
To help software testers collaborate with other team members, Tricentis integrates with the ALM/DevOps tools of your choice. The result is real-time bidirectional synchronization of critical artifacts such as requirements/user stories, defects, and test results across your toolchain.
Integrate testing into your “best of breed” ecosystem
Tricentis provides out-of-the box connectors for all industry-leading ALM/DevOps tools— enabling extensive customization without requiring scripting. Connect with your current tool set to start, then rest assured that you can later change vendors without losing your synchronization support. Integration is tested with over 200 versions of the supported tools, and Tricentis is committed to supporting new versions shortly after they are released.

Collaborate at the speed of DevOps
Assume a user story is defined in an agile planning tool then automatically synchronized to Tricentis Tosca. The tester can track real-time implementation progress from Tricentis Tosca and start testing the user story once implementation is complete. If a test failure is detected, a defect can be created directly from Tricentis Tosca, then automatically propagated to the responsible developer. Relevant technical information about the failure is automatically added to the defect to help the developer analyze the problem. As soon as the developer resolves the issue, its status is set to “done,” and the tester knows that the bug fix is ready for validation.
Or, assume a team uses a tool such as JIRA or Rally for planning tests and tracking results. Any tests defined in that tool are automatically synchronized to Tricentis Tosca, where they can be automated and executed. After execution completes, results are synchronized back to the planning tool.
Increase productivity and insight
With automated synchronization enabled across the ecosystem, updates and notifications are instant—increasing productivity and eliminating tedious import/export tasks. This reduces the risk of duplicated efforts, overwritten work, and unnecessary delays.
We synchronize artifact relationships as well as the actual artifacts. This provides team members additional insights, such as the ability to tell which defects are currently blocking a certain requirement.
