Test Management with IBM Rational Quality Manager v6.0.5 (IBM Engineering Test Management) (ODC8020G-WBT)

Overview

This course introduces test managers to the basics of using IBM Rational Quality Manager V6 to manage a test effort within a software development project. The course teaches how to plan the test effort, develop test artifacts, align with requirements and development, manage the test team's work, monitor progress, submit and track defects, and report test results and status. 
Through hands-on lab exercises that reinforce learning, you will experience the benefits of test management that is integrated with requirements and development through the Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM).

IBM Rational Quality Manager is a key component of the Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM), providing quality management capabilities in a fully-integrated environment that can also include Rational Team Concert for change and configuration management, and Rational Requirements Composer for requirements definition and management.

This course contains interactive lessons that focus on skill growth. The course also contains exercises mirroring the instructor-led version and are performed in a simulated environment that does not require connection or access to a live system which provides extreme flexibility in taking the course.
