Are you a tester working within a regulated environment? Do you spend more time on documentation than you do on actually verifying the system? If so, please attend this session to learn how Jonathan Kauffman helped a bio-medical device company move from managing test cases with monolithic Word documents to using Zephyr for JIRA. Jonathan will also describe the test automation framework that he developed so that the team could reduce their manual test execution burden, and will discuss how he created a feature file generation tool so that Zephyr for JIRA could serve as the source of truth for how a test should be executed. Come learn how a combination of effective test case management and test automation can be used to free up time for testers to actually test.
