Test management tool - The single point of truth for all testing events
Silk Central provides a unified framework for the integration of requirements, test automation tools (unit, functional and performance), issue tracking and full manual test activities. Delivering consolidated management and visibility of test activities throughout the development of the software.
Advanced manual execution planning
Define What to test, When to test, Where to test and Who to test in the context of Test Cycles for efficient usage of resource and targeted fulfilment of your quality goals.
Monitor testing activity in teams co-located or distributed across the globe, in real-time. Give transparency across the organization and foster live collaboration for cross project activities. A personal dashboard providing information according to the project and test cycles relevant to the user’s role
Highlight risk mitigation and quality goals
Silk Central helps prioritize, execute and demonstrate how test efforts respond to initiatives such as risk-based testing. It has a flexible mechanism for defining quality goals determined by the business, using your terminology.
Visualizations within Silk Central engages business users in a collaborative way, so that they can quickly and easily validate requirements. Silk Central integrates with Caliber to integrate simulations and visualizations of requirements with test planning.
Configuration testing ensures tests can be executed against multiple configurations without the need for duplication. This enables clear reuse of scripts, management of tests and report on coverage of test environments.
Organizations will find it easier to manage test environments using the open virtualization solution in Silk Central. vCloud, an out-of-box plugin for VMware, can enhance the test environment. Working with a different virtualization vendor? No problem. Use the Open API to create a customized plugin.
TestBook – real time feedback
Want collaborative and real time feedback on manual tests? Posting key information and comments to TestBook keeps every member of a project team in the loop throughout testing.
Offline manual testing
Manual tests are executed offline. When checked out, they show as ‘unavailable for execution‘ within Silk Central as results are captured in the offline manual test. No client install is required as it uses a controlled .xlsx file format.
Intuitive manual test result viewer
Reports illustrating the execution status of a test run in progress can be generated. This is useful for quickly viewing the outcome of a manual test, with an audit trail and a full understanding of any defects raised. It provides quick and easy online access, with the option to save as a PDF.
