IBM Champion 2013

Congratulations, Yolande Palmer!

We are very proud to announce that TestPro has been awarded the salubrious honour IBM champion for 2013!

Yolande Palmer (TAF Pro Product Manager) received highest recognition and selected as one of 10 worldwide and has the ability to stand alongside only a very select group of people to be recognised for their contribution to the IBM Rational Brand.

TestPro, as not only remotely connected to the IBM US systems and with only 15 – 20 people has been able to prove our value and standing in the international community.

To extend our expertise with Rational and IBM we have now created and have working and proven Mobile Automated testing solution connected to RFT and TAF Pro. This is far in advance of any solution IBM have and in front of any other test solution that we have come across.

Yolande will be recognised on the world stage in the US at the IBM Innovate 2013!

Yolande leads the team for creating one of the best known brands by IBM for testing in the world. This was one of the aims at the beginning of TestPro. That is, to be the best at automation and TestPro is certainly getting that recognition.
