Project Description

Your Test Professionals BV (YTP) is a specialized company in the execution of turn-key test projects for software solutions. To perform their tasks, a number of tools are available that are to be jointly deployed with test projects.

All four applications used by YTP are ‘best of breed’ for the specific process for which they were designed. An arising problem with that combination is that YTP delivers many different projects to a large spectrum of very different clients. Obviously installing and configuring each configuration by hand would consume an incredible amount of time. Therefore the need arose to have one portal, from which new projects could be created easily, users could be managed and all management information for individual projects could be retrieved in the blink of an eye. As YTP already used the Drupal CMS, the need came to arise that the portal would be developed within this technology.

The tools selected by YTP are based on OpenSource technology:

  • Mantis; to register and process bugs
  • TestLink; to create and monitor test cases
  • KnowledgeTree; to jointly manage and share controlled documentation
  • MediaWiki; to jointly construct manuals and best practices
The result
YTP is now able to create an entire controlled administrative environment for each project in no-time, effectively eliminating the largest part of overhead cost. As the individual applications are all based on OpenSource technology, YTP is ensured of receiving update from the different communities, guaranteeing that their clients always receive services based on the latest technologies and a modern toolkit. Byelex provides for Housing, Hosting and the second-level helpdesk based on a SaaS model, while also caring for updates to the software components used.
