HP launches new QA certifications
Quality Assurance is an essential part of many IT operations and processes. It is no surprise that it is rapidly developing in a complex, self-sufficient area. The QA process is a review of products and processes before they are released to the public. This is done using a variety of specialized tools and processes, as well as their coordination.
There are many QA platforms and tools available, and the choice is dependent on your priorities, needs, and processes. However, HP’s solutions such as HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM), and HP Unified Functional Testing(UFL) are very popular with organizations and their QA personnel worldwide. Two certifications have been introduced by HP recently to validate the skills of those who use these tools. HP ATP – Application Lifecycle Management v12 addresses the use of HP’s ALM platform for QA support, while HP ATP – Unified Functional Testing v12 provides training to those involved in the preparation and execution of automated test cases.
Let’s take a closer look at these credentials.
