Enhance Your Quality Reporting Capabilities With QACube
Software QA requires complete end-to-end visibility of your delivery process and your team’s ability to meet defined quality standards and benchmarks. QACube provides the reporting and analytics capabilities organizations need to evaluate the quality and value of product deliverables as they progress in your pipeline.
QACube’s Quality Assurance Platform serves as a central repository to gather, analyze, and report data from third-party product delivery tools and indicates when a product’s progress is breaching specified KPIs and quality gates. The latest 2.9 version includes new adaptors for Bugzilla, GitLab, and Xray, and enhanced Jira, Team Foundation Server (now Azure DevOps), and Tosca adaptors.
This vendor provides the necessary real-time monitoring capabilities for organizations adopting continuous delivery where periodic, in-person check-ins do not support your throughput and automation needs. While application lifecycle management (ALM) tools offer centralized reporting capabilities, they do not provide the extensive integration and data aggregation capabilities that analytical tools, such as QACube, offer. In complex cases, some organization resorted to data analytics and BI tools to achieve similar outcomes.

QACube complements your existing product delivery tools and adds enhanced reporting and analytical capabilities for the management of your product releases. The success of this tool requires a grounded definition of quality, a development organization motivated to implement a holistic QA practice, and a complete and integrated product delivery pipeline.
