Helix TCM

Test case management tool with tracking and reuse features

About Helix TCM

Helix TCM is a test case management software solution that sits within Perforce's Development Lifecycle Management product, the modular Helix ALM suite. Available alongside the fully integrated Helix IM (Issue Management) and RM (Requirements Management) modules, Helix TCM can also be deployed standalone on 12-month license subscriptions, both on-premise or within the cloud. Boasting a single, centralized pane of glass, Helix TCM allows users to write, execute, and view the results of test cases without the requirement, knowledge and switching between numerous applications. Billed as an an enterprise-level test case management tool, combination use within Helix ALM promises enhanced functionality including the option to derive test cases from requirements, creating them automatically pre-linked.

Presenting the results of both automated and manual test runs in one place, Helix TCM is capable of creating and running all test case types. Including functional, validation, performance, regression, acceptance, safety and security varieties; the software makes it immediately clear how complete each test is with updates on progress. Test steps can also be reused to minimize unnecessary repeated manual work, in favor of creating a single test that can be applied to a multitude of cases. Defects can be created from failed test runs, while traceability features include the automatic instant creation of a traceability matrix that ties test cases to requirements. Native integration with JIRA and support for other testing tools such as QA Wizard Pro and HP QuickTest Pro etc suggests that Helix TCM can be fitted seamlessly into an existing application infrastructure and project lifecycle, with other custom tool integration made possible with the system's SOAP-based SDK.
