Facilitate collaboration and establish traceability

Silk Central is an open platform that facilitates collaboration and establishes traceability by integrating requirements, automation, source code control, and defect tracking tools. Gain a centralized view of your test execution status across your software testing with out-of-the-box plug-ins, or by creating your own through the open API.

Support for Agile, traditional, or hybrid methodologies

Silk Central delivers control over application quality by providing consistent, repeatable processes for traditional methodologies or Agile. Silk Central is a unified framework for managing manual and automated tests, integrating with unit, functional, and performance test suites, issue and requirement management systems as well as continuous integration and DevOps activities.

Access real time analytics and reporting

Make metrics and analytics reports accessible to all, using email, intranet, or a portal. Uncovered issues are fully traceable, with result files and progress status available in a format you can view online, printed or exported to a PDF. Video and Screen Capture of test activities improves reproduction of issues for development teams.

Highlight risk mitigation and quality goals

Silk Central helps testers prioritize, execute, and demonstrate how test efforts respond to initiatives such as risk-based testing and requirement-driven testing. Quality goals create measurable criteria to objectively measure quality and track progress. Reports illustrate how testing has responded to these defined quality goals, ultimately enabling the critical go/no-go decisions.
