TeamTrack is a pure issue tracking system for bugs, customer support issues, etc.

TestDirector is a test management tool that contains defect tracking functionality.

For defect tracking, TeamTrack is better.

A new TeamTrack with new capabilities. What are you waiting for? Get it now! We addressed thousands of your requests and added a bunch of killer capabilities like a new forms designer, a new process designer, real change management and improved trend reporting. When you upgrade you get enhanced usability for both you as an admin and all your users. With faster pages, more flexible administration and versioning of your solutions, upgrading will get your TeamTrack implementation humming like a well-oiled machine.

TeamTrack Meets Web 2.0
Take the power of the TeamTrack process engine and sprinkle some Web 2.0 functionality on top. In the latest release you get a visual designer (Serena Mashup Composer) that let's you manage workflows with drag-and-drop ease. And kiss hacking the templates good-bye. Now you can create slick looking Web 2.0 interfaces without having to see a lick of HTML or CSS. Plus, integrate your processes with other systems with point-and-click ease - no coding required.

New Processes Make Your Processes Better
After you upgrade you can download any of our free free pre-built mashups. These processes have TeamTrack best practices baked into them and you can use them as-is, or tweak them to meet your needs. Once you upgrade you can download applications like:

Issue and Defect Management allows you to easily search for duplicates, integrate with any development wiki, and track things like find/fix rates with trend reporting.
Incident and Escalation Management lets you track time and state to see bottlenecks and take advantage of hours of operation to see how you track against your SLAs.
Change Request Management offers an ITIL-inspired approach to capturing, routing and prioritizing change request through the entire change process.

With such an expensive price tag, you might think TeamTrack (Team Tracker) must have some impressive features that Bugzero does not have. Well, you decide. The following are based on a real user experience in 2002 using an early version of TeamTrack, 5.x, experience may vary.

    * Each time a user uses TeamTrack, he or she has to login twice. The first one is a form based authentication, and the second one is an Applet. The administrator tried to turn off the second login, but never succeeded.
    * TeamTrack's user interface is 'cumbersome' to some people. For example, one need take many steps even for a simple operation, such like to query a bug with an known number!
    * How about the frames it uses? The detail bug is in a frame that you won't see it until you scroll the page down.
    * With TeamTrack, one can modify the bug description etc any time and there is no record for the change whatsoever. The problem is not for other tracked fields, it is for the description field, later versions may have fixed this problem.
    * TeamTrack server supports only Windows OS (later versions of TeamTrack supports Unix OS).
    * Team Track has since been bought by Senera (in 2003 or 2004).

TestDirector, the industry’s first global test management solution, helps organizations deploy high-quality applications more quickly and effectively.
Its four modules Requirements, Test Plan, Test Lab, and Defects are seamlessly integrated, allowing for a smooth information flow between various testing stages. The completely Web-enabled TestDirector supports high levels of communication and collaboration among distributed testing teams, driving a more effective, efficient global application-testing process.

Features in TestDirector 7.5?

Web-based Site Administrator

The Site Administrator includes tabs for managing projects, adding users and defining user properties, monitoring connected users, monitoring licenses and monitoring TestDirector server information.

Domain Management
TestDirector projects are now grouped by domain. A domain contains a group of related TestDirector projects, and assists you in organizing and managing a large number of projects.

Enhanced Reports and Graphs
Additional standard report types and graphs have been added, and the user interface is richer in functionality. The new format enables you to customize more features.

Version Control

Version control enables you to keep track of the changes you make to the testing information in your TestDirector project. You can use your version control database for tracking manual, WinRunner and QuickTest Professional tests in the test plan tree and test grid.

Collaboration Module

The Collaboration module, available to existing customers as an optional upgrade, allows you to initiate an online chat session with another TestDirector user. While in a chat session, users can share applications and make changes.

Features in TestDirector 8.0?

TestDirector Advanced Reports Add-in

With the new Advanced Reports Add-in, TestDirector users are able to maximize the value of their testing project information by generating customizable status and progress reports. The Advanced Reports Add-in offers the flexibility to create custom report configurations and layouts, unlimited ways to aggregate and compare data and ability to generate cross-project analysis reports.

Automatic Traceability Notification

The new traceability automatically traces changes to the testing process entities such as requirements or tests, and notifies the user via flag or e-mail. For example, when the requirement changes, the associated test is flagged and tester is notified that the test may need to be reviewed to reflect requirement changes.

Coverage Analysis View in Requirements Module

The graphical display enables you to analyze the requirements according to test coverage status and view associated tests - grouped according to test status.

Hierarchical Test Sets
Hierarchical test sets provide the ability to better organize your test run process by grouping test sets into folders.

Workflow for all TestDirector Modules

The addition of the script editor to all modules enables organizations to customize TestDirector to follow and enforce any methodology and best practices.

Improved Customization

With a greater number of available user fields, ability to add memo fields and create input masks users can customize their TestDirector projects to capture any data required by their testing process. New rich edit option add color and formatting options to all memo fields.
