The process of test together with test case execution tracking and documentation is called test management. Surely there are many tools available to assist testers with this process hence both automated and manual tests are managed with more ease. That is if the right tool is chosen.
Which tools may be required?
There are times when test scenarios are complex meaning require to be defined and teams require performing tests against different configurations. Such situations will require tools that are more advanced. Such tools will also keep track of different milestones, will provide statistical data as well as detailed reports, etc. Are there any open source tools that will fit your team’s requirements? Perhaps, the decision is for you to make. But here are several tools you may choose from. Maybe they will do the trick for you:
