Get out of Excel hell
A guide to getting started with unified test management
Once upon a time, Excel seemed like the perfect solution for test management. It’s flexible enough to use for anything and familiar enough to appeal to everyone. Not only could you adopt Excel without haggling for purchase permission, but your team also already had access to it. They could start using it right then, for free.
But now, here you are, in Excel hell. In Dante’s “Inferno,” the journey begins “within a forest dark, for the straightforward pathway had been lost.” If you’re lost in spreadsheets, you can probably relate. While Dante traveled through nine circles of hell to find his way out the other side, using Excel for test management will take you on a journey through five.
