This leading web-based system helps QA teams implement a quality management process and build a foundation for best practices on an enterprise-wide level.
Quality Center is designed to cover all the quality activities including requirements , test management, defect tracking, as well as areas like business process testing.
Ultimately what you can expect from Quality Center is improved application quality with more effective and cost efficient project implementation.

Data Migration

If you’re looking to save costs on Quality Center licencing then migrating to a new test management tool is an option. On a typical QC install a migration to a different solution can save you the equivalent costs of an additional tester each year.

Integration

Real workflow efficiency comes from integrating tools. Duplicating data in multiple tools is a waste of effort. Swapping between tools every few minutes becomes tiresome. Lack of traceability between data which should be linked leads to poor decision making

Quality Release and Test Cycle Management
Quality Center facilitates control of your development and testing cycles, breaking large projects into manageable phases. Providing the ability to track requirements and tests for each cycle and attain real-time visibility into actual versus planned testing status.
Version Control
Quality Center defines, manages and tracks functional, performance, and security test scripts in one place. It assigns business risk to requirements, and calculates where to apply testing resources. QA teams can emulate business processes, run tests unattended with QTP and execute manual and automated tests.
Requirements Management
Quality Center enables distributed teams to collaborate and manage multiple versions of assets in parallel while maintaining data integrity and a change history. Essential to providing traceability across the project life cycle this version control capability is key to teams operating in regulated markets.
Baselining
Quality Center uses templates and a rich text editor for a word-processor-like experience. It provides the ability to view requirements at a process or release level and trace relationships between other entities. When requirements change, a change impact report will give information on the business process affected and notifies team members whose tasks might be impacted.
Defect Management
Quality Center marks specific milestones by capturing groups of requirements, tests, or test assets at strategic points in the project life cycle. Each snapshot can then be tagged as a Baseline. Baselines can then be compared to assess the impact of changes.
Test Scheduling and Execution
Quality Center defect management identifies, manages, tracks, and enforces defect resolution. It does not require a specific defect management methodology, but it does require basic planning and organization. The ability to customize workflow gives you the ability to map the process to your real life environment.
Developer Collaboration
Quality Center supports manual and automated testing (with QTP) including unattended execution. It provides views of execution runs, results and log defects. When integrated with automation tools such as QTP you'll have the capability to manage all of your testing from one central location.
Integrated Reporting
Quality Center provides an integrated development environment for linking tasks, requirements and defects without requiring training on new development tools. Alternatively integration with tools like Jira means that developers can work within their tool of choice whilst testers use this leading test management platform.
