Scapa TPP News

Iain and Bill participated in the recent BriForum Europe event in London. We still don’t know how well they did in the Geek Out game show hosted by Brian Madden but they had an interesting couple of days. Bill recorded a Scapa TPP demonstration which can be viewed online here ( http://dmtrk.net/t/Q03-GFMG-3K3RSX-6FJJN-0/c.aspx at Brian Madden’s website.
Product Development News
The latest build of Scapa TPP, build 28, now contains an RDBMS SQL datastore as standard. With direct access, this datastore updates every 5 seconds and provides live and post-test reporting capabilities. In the near future we intend to release reports that access the data in the datastore, which will replace and improve the current reporting structure for many customers.

Further good news for many customers concerns the development work on the Scapa TPP data collectors. The work on these collectors is in its initial stages and we will keep you informed of our progress in our update newsletters and on the forthcoming secure Customer Page on our website.

Scapa TPP currently provides the most complete coverage for Remedy testing, but we are also focusing development work on improving support for Remedy mid-tier. A lot of this work has been completed and is currently in testing with selected partners.
