Vector Announces Integration With its Award-Winning VectorCAST Test Automation Platform and the IBM® Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) Application

February 6, 2019

PROVIDENCE, R.I., Feb. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With the release of the VectorCAST integration for IBM CLM, organizations can quickly and easily link requirements to VectorCAST test cases.

IBM’s Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) is a set of seamlessly-integrated application lifecycle management (ALM) tools that work together as one. Organizations use CLM to manage requirements, plan projects, track changes, and manage quality on a single platform.

Through a simple and intuitive interface, engineers can quickly and easily link requirements to VectorCAST test cases using VectorCAST’s Requirements Gateway (RGW). With the integration to IBM CLM, developers can import software requirements from a CLM Requirements Management (RM) tool and associate them directly to test cases. The integration allows for creating Quality Management (QM) test cases inside of CLM matching those created in VectorCAST. The relationship between RM requirements and QM test cases is automatically maintained, allowing for complete traceability inside of CLM. Finally, with the VectorCAST adapter for CLM, it is possible to execute VectorCAST test cases from within CLM.

The VectorCAST for IBM CLM integration also eases regulatory compliance by reducing the amount of time and effort spent generating full traceability and status reports required to meet industry regulations such as DO-178 (Avionics), IEC 61508 (Functional Safety), IEC 62304 (Medical) and ISO 26262 (Automotive).

“Requirements traceability, data analysis, and reporting are critical components in the development of safety and mission critical applications, and organizations expect requirements management to be a seamless process within their development environment,” said Jeffrey Fortin, VectorCAST Product Manager. “The IBM CLM integration was developed in response to the increased use of CLM by our existing VectorCAST customers and provides them with a powerful way to manage requirements with test data.”
