Driving Collaboration between Azure DevOps (ADO) and Best-of-Breed QA Tools

Presented by

Andy Salo

About this talk

Microsoft Azure DevOps is a widely used Agile Planning tool. Many organizations have adopted other tools for Quality Assurance and Testing like SmartBear's QAComplete. Bridging the gap between these tools is easy to do with ConnectALL's Value Stream Integration platform. Imagine a scenario where your App Dev team, using ADO, are working through a 2 week sprint. Testing is a critical component of each sprint and can often derail the throughput for a given sprint. User stories are often delayed and shifted into future sprints because of poor communication between AppDev & QA. When teams are using multiple tools, it's critical to bridge the communication with real-time data flow between both. In this simple demo, we'll showcase a User Story originating in ADO, synchronizing to SmartBear QAComplete. We'll show you how the QA team can change the status of the User Story, add a comment, while the changes are automatically synced back over to Azure DevOps for the AppDev team to monitor. As the testing unfolds during a given sprint, the AppDev team is made aware of any bugs uncovered and logged to QAComplete.
