Marcel MorfMarcel Morf Integrating HP PPM with HP Quality Center – As Simple as It Looks?

09/30/2008 by Marcel Morf

Very often, the processes of change & transport and quality management in the IT organzation are technically not very tightly integrated. Although organizationally, they are well coordinated, with both processes being clearly defined, digitized, automated and constantly improved, I doubt if their integration is tight enough.

Peter HelfensteinPeter Helfenstein E2E SAP Testing – Halfway Under Control?
