Mainly Quality Assurance and DevOps, but of course the whole company and management areas with more knowledge of quality and client success approach.
Integration capabilities with other vendors' tools should improve.

Classes are not as object-oriented as I would like, but I am a programmer and not QA so I expect a lot.
