Leading global provider of quality-centric ALM solutions also previews upcoming product release with new Agile capabilities

Cincinnati, OH – March 22, 2010 – Seapine Software, a leading global provider of quality-centric application lifecycle management (ALM) solutions, will present Why Managing Requirements and Tests with Microsoft Office Doesn’t Work at this year’s TestExpo, the UK's leading exhibition event for software testers. The test automation event will be held on Thursday, March 25, at Congress Centre, London.Joining the extensive lineup of expert speakers at this conference, Gordon Alexander, Seapine’s ALM solutions specialist, will explain that effective test and change management is not possible using a general purpose word processing tool because it limits users to managing a document instead of managing work items. Mr. Alexander will discuss the importance of performing impact analysis based on traceability between requirements and tests, and how an integrated solution can help achieve forward and backward traceability. In addition, visitors to Seapine’s stand #7 will get a firsthand look at Seapine’s upcoming 2010.1 product releases, which help enterprises control and enforce quality across the software development lifecycle.
