About the Course

This course covers all aspects of using Quality Center 11 (Enterprise Edition) to manage your testing projects, from developing your requirements and planning your software releases, through to writing test scripts, executing them and raising and managing defects.  New features such as Sprinter, Business Models and Project Reports are explained in depth.

The course covers best practices, how the traceability model works and reporting facilities.

Throughout the course practical examples are demonstrated, and the delegates get to practice what they have learned in each chapter within Quality Center (QC).
