  8. 8. © Copyright 2015, Inflectra Corporation - 8 - Project Portfolio Management Projects in SpiraTeam can be organized into Project Groups that belong to a common organization, customer or division. This allows you to view a summary project group dashboard that lets you view the aggregate status of the group as whole as well as compare the relative health of the different projects in the group:
  9. 9. © Copyright 2015, Inflectra Corporation - 9 - Product Backlog Planning The list of user stories, requirements, defects and features is called the Product Backlog. SpiraTeam lets you organize the backlog by component, package or priority. You can order and categorize them by simple drag and drop editing. This is called backlog grooming.
  10. 10. © Copyright 2015, Inflectra Corporation - 10 - Sprint / Iteration Planning The requirements (user stories), tasks, test cases and outstanding incidents (bugs, issues) can be scheduled against the different iterations / sprints in the release. The system will calculate the available effort as requirements are added.
  11. 11. © Copyright 2015, Inflectra Corporation Kanban & Scrum Agile Planning Boards - 11 - The Planning Board allows teams to view the story cards by iteration, status or person for a given release or iteration. The allows you to manage the number of backlog items at each stage of the process and also load-balance the members of the project team.
  12. 12. © Copyright 2015, Inflectra Corporation - 12 - Integrated Test Management SpiraTeam provides the ability to create, edit and delete project test cases that are stored in a hierarchical folder structure. You can move, copy and filter the test cases according to a variety of criteria.
  13. 13. © Copyright 2015, Inflectra Corporation - 13 - Manual Test Execution You can execute groups of test cases - along with their test steps – so that the testers can follow the instructions and determine if the system being tested behaves as expected. Optionally a new incident can be raised in the system – linked to the test step failure
  14. 14. © Copyright 2015, Inflectra Corporation - 14 - Incident Traceability Unlike a standalone bug tracking tool, you can trace the defects back to the test case and the underlying requirement that generated them, giving the project manager unprecedented power in analyzing the “in-process” quality of a system during its lifecycle.
  15. 15. © Copyright 2015, Inflectra Corporation Instant Messaging & Collaboration - 15 - SpiraTeam includes an integrated instant-messenger that lets users collaborate and communicate in real-time regardless of geographic location. The discussions can be codified and tagged against specific artifacts in the system, so that they become part of the artifact discussion thread.
  16. 16. © Copyright 2015, Inflectra Corporation Support for Mobile Devices - 16 - SpiraTeam provides a mobile web interface that allows users of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices to view their dashboard of assigned test cases and execute their tests using the mobile device. During test execution, you can attach screenshots to failed tests using the device’s built-in camera, providing additional context.
