Introducing Seapine ALM Reporting Platform
There is a new addition to Seapine ALM product suite—Seapine ALM Reporting Platform (Seapine ALM RP). Seapine ALM RP is a database warehouse that can contain data from the entire Seapine ALM suite. This means you can have data from the Seapine License Server, TestTrack, Surround SCM, and QA Wizard Pro in a single, normalized database.

If you are already getting the reports you need from the products, then Seapine ALM RP is not for you. For those of you who need custom reports that may span different projects in TestTrack, different mainlines in Surround SCM, or different product databases, Seapine ALM RP is right for you. What are the benefits? There are several benefits to using Seapine ALM RP. Here are just a few:Email sign up
- Writing reports is much easier against a normalized database.
- Writing reports across silos is easier if the data is in a single database.
- Writing reports is much faster against a database optimized for reporting, as opposed to writing reports against a database optimized for application performance.
- Running reports against a separate database instance frees resources from your production environment.
