TMap NEXT® Test Plan template for IBM Rational Quality Manager version 3.0 and version 4.0 released

Sogeti’s TMap NEXT® Test Plan templates for IBM Rational Quality Manager have been available since the first versions of IBM’s test management software. The template has always been a catalyst to help organizations create more comprehensive and practical risk-based plans that form the fundamental baseline for efficient and effective software testing. It encapsulated Sogeti’s business-driven testing best practices and formalizes implementation guidance within Rational Quality Manager. 

With the further development of the Rational portfolio, the template has now been updated to make it compatible with IBM Rational Quality Manager version 3.0 and version 4.0. This enables organizations to use the template in the newest versions of Rational Quality Manager. With the template, organizations can use TMap NEXT® processes, characteristics and terminology in their Rational Quality Manager installation; from test plan, to test case.
