What is new in codeBeamer 8.1?
Review Hub for Product Quality & Audit Support
With codeBeamer 8.1, managing reviews just got way easier, enabling you to achieve better quality products with less errors during development, shorter certification time, and reduced time to market. The new Review Hub helps you better fulfil user needs, and greatly supports compliance audits. Efficiently collect and assign work items for review, and review all changes as well as the impacts of these changes conveniently. Easily export statistics about your reviews for reporting. Use the new Review Hub to simply review all changes to customer specifications with all their relations, and trace their implementation through to testing with minimal effort.
Advanced filtering options help reviewers manage their workload. A full change history is provided, making it easier to manage reviews for multiple items with continuously changing specifications. Therefore, the new Review Hub is a powerful tool that not only helps better satisfy customer needs, but also serves auditors by enabling them to conveniently trace changes to specifications, and to review all the actions resulting from these changes.
Baselined Test Management for IoT Development
codeBeamer 8.1’s versioned test management functionality enables the integrated testing of products with hardware and software components. Using versioned testing, you can now re-test baselined product versions with their corresponding test cases any time (that is, older versions of a test case may be re-run with versioned configurations). By supporting the parallel testing of HW and SW, codeBeamer 8.1 greatly simplifies the development of quality products for the Internet of Things.
Reporting & Analytics Features for Management and Audits
codeBeamer 8.1’s reporting functionality just got a complete makeover, giving you up-to-date analytics reports right at your fingertips, at all times. The addition of advanced analytics and automated reporting features hugely supports monitoring and decision-making, rendering this feature a management favorite. Reports may now be scheduled conveniently: automatically send scheduled and recurring reports with any frequency you like, and edit report subscriptions easily. You can now use custom (and even rolling) date ranges, logical (AND/OR) operators in queries, and group data by aggregated fields, allowing for better filtering.
