Why Helix TCM for Test Management?

Test more and track everything quickly and easily with Helix TCM. 

Helix TCM lets you write, execute, and track the results of test cases without the need to learn or switch between different applications. You can even record exploratory test sessions to create new test cases, complete with detailed steps, screen captures, and a common language.

You can use Helix TCM by itself as an enterprise-level test case management tool, or as part of an end-to-end lifecycle management solution with Helix ALM. Helix TCM can run in the cloud or on premise, delivering quick access from your web browser and native Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux clients.

Write. Organize. Test. Track.

Helix TCM succeeds where other test case management tools fail.

With Helix TCM, you can create, organize, and run thousands of test cases — functional, validation, performance, regression, acceptance, safety, security, or any other kind. Helix TCM makes it easy to track the results and measure progress. You always know how much testing is completed and how much remains, and can spot the bottlenecks before they become a problem.

Unlimited types, test sets, tabs, folders, custom fields, and filters — Helix TCM's organizational tools make fast work of keeping the largest test case libraries organized. You can easily track all test case details, from steps and data to relationships and usage history.

And you won't outgrow Helix TCM as your project grows, because it can handle the largest testing projects and still remain responsive.

Automate Test Case Creation

Test Faster with Reusable Test Cases and Test Runs.

Helix TCM enables the reuse of test steps to reduce work, ensure consistency across tests, and projects, and leverage test coverage work. Similarly, when you have multiple systems or browsers to run the same tests against, Helix TCM's variants reduce work by letting you write one test and use it for multiple targets.

Helix TCM includes Defect Scribe, a free add-on that intelligently records your actions and builds a detailed history of your test session. You can use Defect Scribe to automate test case creation when you find defects. Defect Scribe builds a detailed history of your test session that you can save as step-by-step test cases. 

With Helix TCM, you can reduce data entry by creating defects from failed test runs. These defects include the test steps executed and all other helpful information to reproduce the problem. And defects are an excellent source of new test cases, so Helix TCM can convert them for you to improve test coverage.

Instant Transparent Traceability

Traceable software testing requires the best quality assurance tools.

Traceability starts with building relationships. Helix TCM automatically links test cases to requirements, test results, even source code to provide upstream and downstream traceability of development artifacts.

And with impact analysis, enabled by Helix TCM's traceability, you can know ahead of time how a change is going to impact requirements and test cases. The relationships Helix TCM establishes between test cases and requirements help you know when requirements change so you can review and update impacted test cases accordingly.

When tests fail, Helix TCM links your test run to the failed defect to provide traceability from the test case to the resolution of the failure. In fact, you can trace from a requirement all the way to the source code changes made to resolve a defect. And if compliance is a concern, Helix TCM can force sign-offs on each test step during testing. This configurable option improves traceability in regulated environments.

Another valuable compliance tool is Helix TCM's traceability matrix, which lets you focus on test coverage analysis, root cause analysis, and other relationship-based analysis. Helix TCM generates trace matrices almost instantly, eliminating hours of manual effort required to create and maintain these.
