In product development, the work of one team affects the work of other teams. Today’s agile world requires back-and-forth communication among the product team’s requirements definitions, the development team’s building, and the QA team’s testing.
These tests, artifacts, records— and the activities they represent — are all connected. Which means that a change to one will likely create changes to others. If teams use separate tools to track activity, there is no visibility into the impact of any change. This can result in:
- Refactoring artifacts.
- Rewriting/re-executing tests.
- Other timely rework that affects your development schedule.
But this is mitigated if you proactively analyze the impact of a change before it is made. This is best accomplished using one tool for all teams.
In this webinar, Tom Totenberg and Tzvika Shahaf will show you how proper impact analysis will keep you on schedule. They will cover:
- The benefits of impact analysis.
- Real-world consequences of using separate, manual tools to conduct impact analysis.
- The benefits of using one tool for all teams to measure change impact.
- How to conduct impact analysis in Helix ALM.
