Illuminate is a light-weight, performance diagnostic engine & a massively scalable APM tool which uses Machine Learning techniques to identify what the problem is and how to fix it. This allows users to set Service Level Agreements (SLA) on transactions, e.g. "2 Seconds for this Web request". When the SLA is breached, Illuminate uses Machine Learning to find the root cause of a performance problem. The user is alerted and can then view a plain english report with the details of what caused the issue and a recommended fix.

JIRA is a bug tracking, issue tracking and project management software. JIRA is written in Java and uses the Pico inversion of control container, Apache OFBiz entity engine, and WebWork 1 technology stack. For remote procedure calls (RPC), JIRA supports SOAP, XML-RPC and REST. JIRA integrates with source control programs such as Subversion, CVS, Git, Clearcase, Team Foundation Server, Mercurial, and Perforce. It ships with various translations including English, Japanese, German, French, and Spanish. JIRA captures and organize issues, assign work, and follow team activity.
Robot Framework is a generic test automation framework for acceptance testing and acceptance test-driven development (ATDD). It has tabular test data syntax and utilizes the keyword-driven testing approach. Its testing capabilities can be extended by test libraries implemented either with Python or Java, and users can create new keywords from existing ones using the same syntax that is used for creating test cases. The framework has a rich ecosystem around it consisting of various generic test libraries and tools that are developed as separate projects. Robot Framework is operating system and application independent. The core framework is implemented using Python and runs also on Jython (JVM) and IronPython (.NET).
The Selenium-IDE (Integrated Development Environment) is the tool to develop Selenium test cases. It is implemented as a Firefox extension, and allows to record, edit, and debug tests. Selenium IDE includes the entire Selenium Core, to easily and quickly record and play back tests in the actual environment that they will run in. Selenium IDE is not only a recording tool: it is a complete IDE. You can choose to use its recording capability, or you may edit your scripts by hand. With autocomplete support and the ability to move commands around quickly, Selenium IDE is the ideal environment for creating Selenium tests no matter what style of tests you prefer.
Testing Anywhere is an automated software testing tool that allows users to automate any type of testing. With Testing Anywhere, you get a powerful, “no-programming-required” user interface that lets you record, edit, and run test cases—no matter how complex—in record time, enabling your team to focus on more thorough testing. A built-in editor allows users to build tests that can be easily edited to allow for changes in the test cases. It tests any application on any Windows platform and automates virtually any task or process, including application integration, IT processes, data extraction and migration testing.

Mobile application testing is a process by which application software developed for hand held mobile devices is tested for its functionality, usability and consistency. Mobile applications either come pre-installed or can be installed from mobile software distribution platforms. Mobile application testing can be categorized as:
Mobile devices have witnessed a phenomenal growth in the past few years. A study conducted by the Yankee Group predicts the generation of $4.2 billion in revenue by 2013 through 7 billion U.S. smartphone app download
By no means should QA management and their teams avoid test suites - including automated iterations - altogether. These resources can be extremely useful for software testers and help them dig up a variety of issues. However, no single asset should be given too much focus, as they will each display some strengths and weaknesses. Quality development practices should include a comprehensive arsenal of testing tools to aid the efforts of QA professionals. Explore the top 10 risks to keep in mind when taking a test suite approach to QA.
Some QA leaders have found that their collected data doesn't always effectively address the questions they have. This may occur for a variety of reasons, but a likely culprit is a lack of context. Testing metrics should not be considered in a vacuum. To get the best results from these assets, QA management must consider numerous measurements and the implications they offer as an entire unit.
This is the second part of Amit's tools he was experiencing during his work. This great list shows tools that can help any tester to succeed in his/hers quest. Good tester is the one that know, not only to activate the testing machine or application, also has strong ability to know and learn how to use wide range of tools that will help him/her to analyze the SUT and summarize in the correct manner. After going through the tools in this list, QA doesn't seem so simple any more.
