Better Application Lifecycle Management tool in the market

Pros

It is a fairly easy to use application management tool available in the market which has features to track the status of a defect.

Cons

It would be better if we have an ability to create diagrams especially when we are dealing with complex defect created by Tester.

Response from Micro Focus

Thanks for giving ALM/Quality Center a very positive rating and pointing out it is easy to use. Regarding your comment on the ability to create diagrams, we are not sure what you are referring to. Could you share more details and which version you are using?

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.

Quality center is still going strong

Implemented it in 3 major organization, easy to learn is my major experience. An introduction to new users just take 20 min and then they are fully self going. Worked some other systems where filter seems to be very complicated to implement in an easy way, non filters as good as QC. Compared to JAMA ....

Pros

-All features other ALM tool manufacturers claim is actually working better in QC -Simplicity of using , you know where you are what you filter how you find thing through traces -More advanced testplanning than all other tool (maybe except codebeamer) - Easy adminstration - easy to search and present during audits. - remarkable possibilities with risk management IF some people just let their confusing ideas start from 0 again

Cons

Interface on Explorer Not entirely web based Feelgood appearance (Looks old)

Reasons for choosing ALM/Quality Center

Codebeamer i wanted use but it never happened

Reasons for switching to ALM/Quality Center

Only requirements and got the "document" thinking.

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.

Reasons for switching to ALM/Quality Center

Bugzilla had limited options and was not capable for end to end test Management tool.

Response from Micro Focus

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
