The products are fully configurable and allow many different options. The treacibility feature is great and allows us to trace issues to particular test cases. DevTest allows us to maintain all test cases in one place, and most importantly, re-use existing test cases as needed. DevTrack has been a great asset to out organization for the past 9 years. We went from only 5-6 people using it, to most of the teams on many projects.
Another plus is Customer Web Portal that we utilized with many of our users. It allows users to submit issues to us with no need in using a license.
As stated above, ease of use is not straight forward. Because DevSuite is highly configurable, Admins have to have an extensive knowledge of the admin tool to configure projects . That said, I think DevTrack is pretty easy to use for average end user. DevTest is more complicated to use. There are many steps one has to take to configure an actual test cycle. We also experienced difficulties when there is a need to add/change coverage in a test cycle.
Despite the cons, we still find both DevTest and DevTrack very useful. Using these products made our job as QA much easier and greatly improved our communication with developers.
