What is a shortlist?

A shortlist is a personalized list of vendors based on the criteria you define. Your shortlist offers more information about vendor's strengths, weaknesses, price-points, etc, and ranks them according to your needs.

What is a Value Score?

The Value Score indexes each vendor’s product offering and business strength relative to their price point. It does not indicate vendor ranking.

Vendors that score high offer more bang for the buck (e.g. features, usability, stability, etc.) than the average vendor, while the inverse is true for those that score lower.

Price-conscious enterprises may wish to give the Value Score more consideration than those who are more focused on specific vendor/product attributes.



Your Challenge

  • Manual testing can overwhelm a QA team and delay deployment. All of the major vendors now offer some form of automation, but the form of automation varies widely.
  • Lack of integration reduces test scalability, which leads to a fragmented test toolset and a lack of cohesive bug reporting and visibility.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • As the number of application requirements continues to climb, automation becomes critical for testing. Organizations need to look for automated testing for desktop, Web, mobile, touch, and cloud applications.
  • A robust test management tool needs the capability of integrating with other test tools. This permits testing against novel architectures like the Cloud.

Impact and Result

  • Choose the right range of features for your testing challenge.
  • Find an integrated solution that reduces your testing costs.
