As applications become more complex and pressures to decrease costs increase, we need tools to facilitate reducing the turn-around time for testers and developers to find and fix bugs. Microsoft Test and Lab Manager enables testers to collect more detailed diagnostic data during a test run leading to higher quality bugs that provide more insight to the developers on what actually went wrong when the bug occurred. With the addition of Test Strips, testers can generate automation as an artifact of their test runs helping to not only increase coverage of the application, but reducing the time it takes to manually test the application. Finally, we show how Test Impact Analysis helps developers test the right automated tests from within Visual Studio, while testers know what the right set of tests to prioritize and run are given recent changes introduced by the development organization.
