HP ALM 12
This course covers all aspects of using HP ALM 12 to manage your testing projects, from developing your requirements and planning your software releases, through to writing test scripts, executing them and raising and managing defects. Features such as Sprinter, Business Views and Project Reports are explained in depth as well as the new Web Client interface, how the traceability model works and reporting facilities. Throughout the course practical examples are demonstrated, and the delegates get to practice what they have learned in each chapter within ALM.
By the end of the course you should have a complete understanding of all the modules within ALM and how it should be used to manage your testing projects from start to finish.
