uTest Announces Partnership With Mozilla to Build Test Case Management System

Market Leaders Announce They Will Join Forces to Launch a Test Case Management System Geared Toward the Needs of Startups & Mid-Sized Teams

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - uTest, the world's largest software testing marketplace, today announced that it is partnering with Mozilla to jointly develop an inexpensive and easy-to-use test case management system. Leveraging the combined expertise of uTest and Mozilla, the new system will enable companies to easily create, manage and execute their test case libraries. The offering will be launched later this year.

"The test case management space is highly fragmented, and robust tools have been historically available only to larger enterprises with big QA budgets," said Matt Johnston, Chief Marketing Officer at uTest. "By combining Mozilla's experience launching popular, industry-shaping products with uTest's deep understanding of the software testing space, this partnership will produce an exceptional test case management system that's built from the ground up for the modern challenges faced by today's engineering organizations."

The forthcoming product will be an open source design and made available as a free download from Mozilla. Additionally, uTest will offer a hosted implementation that will be fully integrated with its on-demand testing platform and community of 35,000+ testers. The uTest implementation will support distribution of test cases to a company's in-house testers, outsourced testers or selected testers in the uTest community. The Mozilla implementation also allows the distribution of test cases to volunteer testers in the Mozilla quality community.

"uTest shared our vision of creating an open-source test case management system that supports community-based testing," said Matt Evans, QA Director at Mozilla. "As a result, globally distributed software testing professionals will soon have a powerful solution to easily create, manage and execute test cases and report the results."

Additionally, with an open API, outside developers will also be able to easily integrate their own tools and systems with either the uTest or Mozilla implementations.
