A great tool to use for reporting QA metrics to the business.

Reporting metrics, organized structure, testing tool.

Pros

This software makes it easy to create a test set in an organized tree structure. Afterwards, you can grab metrics into any type of graph you would like.

Cons

I really dislike how it is only supported on internet explorer. It would be nice if it were supported on other platforms that is least buggy.

A sophisticated tool for project deliverables

Pros

This software has a wide variety of features available for tracking and maintaining the entire software development cycle. My experience has mostly been related to the testing cycles, the tool provides users the ability to keep track of the testing scenarios being performed and then reporting any detected defects. The users can also attach the evidences associated to the defects for the development team to access.

Cons

The only thin that I did not like about this product is the filters available. Instead of providing the plain check-boxes for the user to select filters, this tool provides functions like AND, OR, NOT to append the filters. That is the only feature that I find a little awkward to use.

Test Management tool ALM

I am using ALM from more than 10 years , have seen many enhancements. I love this tool for test Management and highly recommend to other if you can manage the cost. It’s an easy web based tool for requirements management, test planning, execution and defect reporting.

Pros

1. One solution for all Test Management (Test planning, execution and defect management) 2. Fast and reliable 3. Support end to end traceability 4. Integration with UFT automation tool. 5. Support upload using existing Excel test cases 6. Access management for various type of users 7. Web based tool 8. API available for automation

Cons

1. Sometime it failed to download components while opening in browser due to access level issue 2. Unfortunately, no support to major automation tool selenium 3. Can’t export attachments with test cases 4. High cost per user 5. If ALM is closed and if you reopen the same test it shows object locked 6. No support to update defect from excel. Except automation API

Reasons for Choosing ALM/Quality Center

Perfect for end to end test management tool and quick support, reliable.

Thanks for the review & high rating. It provided helpful insights. You had cons I'd like to address #1: If by access level you mean admin permissions, the ALM Client Launcher solved this: https://marketplace.microfocus.com/appdelivery/content/alm-client-launcher #2: The Jenkins plugin enables you to run most types of tests, inc. Selenium & results are reflected in ALM: https://plugins.jenkins.io/hp-application-automation-tools-plugin/ #3: This is known & we'll address soon #4: Depends on what you want to achieve. Our product has rich ALM functionality built in & high scalability, plus several editions to fit usage needs #5: Contact customer support with this & provide details #6: With Connect you can do so without using API. It includes a connector between Excel & ALM that allows you to map fields between the two: https://marketplace.microfocus.com/appdelivery/content/micro-focus-connect-core & https://marketplace.microfocus.com/appdelivery/content/micro-focus-connect-connectors

Does this tool keep up with the pace?

as a tool for managing STD and bugs - great. when you need web access and control over the entire process - less

Pros

This tool will allow your team to run testing process in a very easy manor, once everything is ready for them in matter of STD.

Cons

the ability to monitor bugs and process is less than other options. not competitive enough in matter of web page support for everywhere access

Reasons for Choosing ALM/Quality Center

Soon there will be a major release and by then Web Runner will have the following capabilities: Manual and automated test execution, Defect Management and ALM/QC dashboard access (read-only).

Decent tool, but versioning could use some improvement and it is hard to work with branches.

Pros

I like that it is a single repository for all requirements, test cases and test executions and maintains good trace records for reporting and audit support. Being able to customize workflows is a big plus that we use quite a bit. Like that our automation tools are able to connect directly(-ish).

Cons

Hard to generate verification reports that trace a requirement to a test case to an execution (without SQL queries). Even worse if you have multiple branches of the same code base that are based off the same requirements library. The versioning needs some work as does the interface. The interface can be pretty buggy at times and the user experience is not consistent with current technology. Reporting tools could be simplified and expanded.
