Here is why Testmap for Jira is a painkiller for your corporate

Sebastian Stemmer

Let me start off this blog post by naming a couple of problems in software testing that you probably have come across in your company:

  • Relevant information for project staff is stored outside of Jira and people either don't know where to look for it or don't have access to it
  • There is a huge transparency issue when it comes to the question of how the actuall E2E business process landscape looks like
  • Every project does testmanagement in a slightly different way so setting company wide standards becomes an impossibility
  • Setting up and maintaining your testmanagement controlling takes up a lot of time

Sounds familiar?

Then you are not alone in this. Years of project experience in big software projects have revealed the same issues to me over and over again.

Does it have to be that way?

We are convinced the answer to this is a big fat "no".

With Testmap for Jira in it's very first version, we are tackling all of these potential and actual problems head-on.

Focusing on processes

It is somewhat general knowledge that great customer experience comes from delivering process excellence. Yet somehow, the process view in projects and how it is supported in Jira Software is not living up to this fact.

With it's map-centric design and the possibility of documenting the company's business processes in Jira, the process view finally get's the attention and support it deserves by the functionality that Testmap for Jira offers.

Standardizing testmanagement

Let's be honest, you won't invent the wheel over and over again. At it's core, testmanagement always needs the same KPI's for every project: Bugs left to do, tests left to do, how many blockers/showstoppers are left to fix, development over the last weeks, bottlenecks in some teams/areas, and so on.

With literally just a few clicks, you can set up all industry proven KPI's that most projects need on a daily basis. And you can do this consistently for every new project in your company. Making it super easy to set up standards for your company.

Helping with transparency

Have you ever been onboarded to a new project and had a hard time figuring out where and what are all the moving pieces and how they fit together? Have you ever had the same experience but you were already part of the project for half a year? Great, you are not alone with this experience.

Just by taking a look at Testmap for Jira's Canvas feature for barely 3 minutes, every stakeholder will have figured out by him or herself, where in the process landscape of the company this project is pushing buttons, what components are involved and what business processes are effected.
