In my last blog post I wrote about why I like integrating tools. As you will recall, it pretty much boils down to the elimination of two major pains: hiding information and doubling information. Now, if you look at it from a tester’s point of view, this means that as a tester, I want all information available that might somehow help me at testing, and I don’t want to put any effort into keeping two systems synchronized.
Whenever you are thinking about introducing a new testing tool, the chances are high that, at some point, sooner or later, someone will raise the question about integration into the existing tool landscape. That's at least my experience. Probably because it has been me who asked the question occasionally in the past. And if you ask me, you should ask that question as well. There are several questions, but you should bring the topic to the table nevertheless.
