Using TestDirector, we can define application requirements and testing objectives, design test plans and develop test cases, create automated scripts and store them in the repository, run manual and automated tests, report execution results, enter defects, review and fix defects by logging into the database.  Using application status reports we can decide whether an application is ready to be released.
