About Quality Center 16

You might think you know  Micro Focus ALM/QC, but version 16 continues to evolve and add new functionality. Of course, it is still as accessible and reliable as ever, but it has moved with times. 

QC 16 is a truly modern, integrated solution. It is the best test management tool for traditional software projects.

ALM/Quality Center 16 – 3 Release Highlights:

1. Web Runner Test Authoring

Micro Focus has improved Web Runner. For those new to Web Runner, it allows you to carry out QC operations without downloading the web client. 

You are now able to author tests in Web Runner, as well as the existing test execution and defect management functionality.

ALM/QC 16 includes improved Jira integration. Users can now view QC status from within Jira. This includes execution status and assigned resources. 

A direct link to the QC asset is also provided.

3. Microsoft Teams Integration

Moving with the times, QC 16 now includes Microsoft Teams integration. You can now choose to be notified of QC events directly in teams as well as the traditional email notification.
