If you are working in a fast-paced, DevOps environment, then it is all the more necessary to be on the same page as far as project statuses go. One key aspect of maintaining the release cadence and avoiding quality oversight or bottlenecks that will impact the timelines and costs of the project is effective test management.

Releasing a high-quality product needs a solid test plan and strategy.
