Overview

Planview LeanKit enables engineering teams across all levels of the organization with a visual work delivery tool to apply Lean management principles to their work, helping them work smarter and deliver faster.

Lifecycle management capabilities built on the open, unifying IBM Rational Jazz platform can help agile and traditional teams: see at-a-glance status, access better data for decisions, manage costs, reuse the most efficient processes across the organization, manage cloud, web, SOA and mobile application design and development. Teams can also gain real-time traceability, manage work across vendors, unify across a diverse set of lifecyle tools, and provide collaborative development for continuous delivery as part of the IBM DevOps solution.

A complete platform for application quality management Qualify AQM comes with fully configurable data stores, workflows, electronic signature, security, dashboards, and reporting.

Every member of the quality process from management, through development and QA, to end users can share in the quality process, allowing real-time decision making and driving predictability. Your team can focus on delivery rather than infrastructure and tools.

Desktop, Tablet & Phone

Qualify is available as a desktop application and as a web application optimized for desktop browsers and tablets. Note that some advanced capabilities are only available in the desktop version.

Multiple Methodologies

Qualify is shipped with several predefined application models that can be used immediately or tuned to your needs. In addition, you can create your own applications that exactly reflect your processes and storage requirements. You can map agile, waterfall, or hybrid methodologies which can be used concurrently to reflect the needs of legacy and new developments.

Information Portal

In addition to the data stored within Qualify it can also display and link to data held within point solutions such as Microsoft TFS and JIRA to give a single integrated view of corporate data. That consolidated information can then be analyzed, graphed, and reported.

Communication Backbone

Qualify allows you to create and manage your quality plans and as importantly acts as the communication backbone letting every team member share in the progress and status. In addition to the on-line access, automatic and manual alerts can be generated which are distributed via email.

Workflows

It is essential that key steps in your quality processes are controlled and can only be passed by the appropriate users. Qualify provides all this and more, enabling rules to be set as to the critical data that must be stored at each step in the process combined with a complete audit trail.

Resource Management

Planning your medium and short-term resourcing needs can be complex but Qualify provides a powerful view of your work in progress, (optionally including time-sheet data), allocated tasks, and forward projects – highlighting areas of potential contention and endangered dead-lines so that you can balance and re-assign your resources as needed.

Totally Configurable

Qualify comes with a number of pre-defined application models that can be used immediately or tuned to your needs. In addition, you can create your own applications that exactly reflect your processes and storage requirements. Map agile, waterfall or hybrid methodologies which can be used concurrently to reflect the needs of legacy and new developments.

Full Security

A role-based security model is a fundamental part of Qualify with a full range of accumulated permissions. Integration with LDAP is fully supported so existing user data can be simply extended.

Easy Data Import

For customers moving to Qualify from spreadsheets and documents or legacy test management products such as QC/ALM, we provide a powerful data import capability that minimizes the data conversion process.
