Use Case Example – Integration between Polarian and Microfocus ALM

Business analysts may use Polarian to define, collect, manage requirements and develop business-driven applications. Testers use the requirements coming from Polarian in Microfocus ALM to create Test Case and perform automated and manual testing; then based on the execution, submit defects and thus manage the quality of Requirements. The Test Case and the Defects again flow back to Polarian with the Omnibus integration in place. Through ALM and Polarian adapter, organizations can achieve transparency in terms of data flow. It is important that both the teams can view the artifacts and their interrelationships across the toolsets and work on actionable items.
