We love tooling! Tools ensure that we no longer forget a birthday, that the groceries are delivered at home and that we easily can pay our debts after a night out. We also make extensive use of tools in our daily work. Sending email, word processing, video calling, keeping files, etc … But do you choose generic software tools or do you go for specialist tools?
All inclusive Tooling?
The dream of many IT managers is one software tool that contains everything. Unfortunately, all-inclusive tooling is an utopia. You can ask the question whether this is desirable. Who did not receive a gift in which two worlds were combined into one device? This is a nice idea in theory, but it just doesn’t work in practice. That is, if your requirements differ from the standard offered. When you as an IT professional purchase a software tool, you need to be aware of which processes you want to automate with tooling and whether the processes are also done justice.
Keep your focus
Not everything used to be better. But old wisdom still stands proud. Looking at the software testing process, we see numerous applications that include a test management module. At the same time, there are countless examples where this simply does not work. Why? Because the test profession is a specialism that you should focus on. It is not a ‘thing’ that you just add. The reverse is also true. When a test management tool also includes an ERP module, this may be questioned.
Tooling, connections and integrations
The motto is therefore: purchase specialist software tools. Pay attention to the possibilities of links and integrations. More and more applications have standard integrations or links with other tools. Incidentally, you do not have to be a programmer yourself to realize a link between tools. Applications such as Zapier and Automate.io help you to create the links you want step by step.
Testersuite has integrations with Jira, TOPdesk and ICTestautomation, among others. In addition, Testersuite has its own API. Our specialists are happy to help you connect Testersuite with other systems.
