LDRA tool suite coupled with Atlassian® Jira® results in a powerful embedded software quality solution

LDRA has integrated its LDRA tool suite with Atlassian Jira, the number 1 software development tool used by Agile teams. When appropriate add-ons are leveraged, Jira offers outstanding requirements and test management capabilities. Complement Jira further with the standards compliance, bidirectional requirements traceability, software testing, automated code analysis, and report generation capabilities of the LDRA tool suite, and the result is a powerful embedded software quality solution. Bidirectional data exchange underpins the core agile principles and values, reducing the cost of testing, and improving code quality, safety, and security.

Atlassian is an open, sharing, expanding company with a mission to help unleash the power of teamwork by helping to unleash the potential of every team. Their Atlassian Jira product is built to help every software team member to plan, track, and release great software.

TBmanager facilitates complete system analysis by representing the static analysis, dynamic analysis, unit, integration and system testing disciplines in one view, graphically illustrating end-to-end traceability and exposing any high-risk aspects of the software and its design. It eliminates the time-consuming rigour of manual testing, bringing savings, efficiency and an ease-of-use solution to the software embedded market.
