What is a Configuration Management Tool?
Configuration management (CM) tools are not strictly testing tools, but are typically necessary to keep track of different versions and builds of the software and tests.
The benefit of a configuration management tool are:
- Store information about versions and builds of software and testware.
- Enable traceability between testware and software work products and product variants.
- Are particularly useful when developing on more than one configuration of the hardware/software environment (e.g. for different operating systems)
