Where do TMap Suite and TMap Quality come from?

TMap (Test Management Approach) was developed in the 1990s by Sogeti. With the increasing complexity of software projects and the greater impact of software in our daily lives, the need for structured testing processes grew. TMap has undergone several revisions to keep in step with new development methods and technologies.

TMAP® Suite Test Engineer

In our TMAP® Suite Test Engineer e-learning, you'll be presented with a structured approach that extends from planning to execution, all neatly phased. You'll also learn about a wide range of testing techniques, so you'll always have the right tools for your specific testing challenges. Good test management? That is essential! So you will learn thorough planning, monitoring and reporting. You also learn about test infrastructure, such as test environments, data and tools. With TMap Suite, you organise your testing efforts intelligently, based on the risks of your project, thanks to risk-based testing.

TMAP®: Quality for cross-functional teams

Imagine: quality assurance is in your project's DNA from the very start of the development cycle. You learn to apply that with this e-learning. Thanks to the cross-functional approach, not only the tester, but everyone in the team contributes to quality. Are you working with Agile or DevOps? No worries, TMap Quality is specifically designed for this and integrates seamlessly. Perhaps the best part is the flexibility; no rigid structures are used, but you learn to create space to mould the framework to your liking. And the end goal? That quality is not added afterwards, but is an integrated part of every piece of software you create from the start.

Comparison between TMap Suite and TMap Quality

TMap Suite is perfect if you are looking for a structured, phase-based testing approach. While TMap Quality is all about quality from the start and goes hand in hand with fast-paced, modern methodologies such as Agile and DevOps.
