The most valuable feature for us is the automatic creation of the test cases, based on the models. And the impact analyzer that shows you where your change is impacting your test cases, and the ability to export that to our TFS Instance. View full review »
Carrie Strickland says in a CA Agile Requirements Designer review
QA Group Manager at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
* Now, we get automated test cases, where before we did not. It cuts out the construction time of testing, about 75%, is what we found. * It is a store that we keep all of our requirements in where, before projects would come in and we would not have a place where we keep the past requirements so there was always a fight between development, testing, and the business writers because they can't remember how functionality works. Now, there is a black and white copy of how the processes are flowing through the system, so there is not a fight anymore about what is happening and what is not happening. View full review »
Don Ingerson says in a Quality Center review
QA Automation Engineer at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees
* Ability to execute automated UFT scripts from Quality Center and store the results * Ability to customize modules, particularly Defect Tracking module on company specific needs * The user can export a lengthy test case with a lot of steps from Excel directly into Quality Center, which saves a lot of time. Conversely, a user can export a test case with all steps from Quality Center to Excel. * Users can save screen shots of defects and also perform manual testing by using Manual Runner that verifies whether each step passed or failed and save the results along with information such as the date/time executed and who the tester was that performed the manual test.

The feature that we find most valuable is the 'Restricted String', used for objects which have a variable number of items. This helps in selecting the input into the data table because it appears as a dropdown box. Another feature is the Plan creation; it is very easy to create and execute an arbitrary number of similar tests that differ only in the data. View full review »

Almost all the features are very good. They have unique features: the snapshot technology, and the drag and drop. By using the above two features, you save a lot of time and effort in development and maintenance. There are some more features which are unique, render image and rendertext concept did help us to identify the element uniquely. View full review »
Lana Rousakovski says in a CA Agile Requirements Designer review
Senior Leader in Software Testing and Process Improvement at a tech company with 10,001+ employees
The ability to create models/diagrams at multiple levels (nest/embed them) helps in taking models from high-level business requirements and building them into detailed requirements models and test models. Plus, it helps reuse lower level models. It also allows maintaining models at appropriate levels, even for very complex systems/solutions. The above features also help to avoid redundancy and use appropriate level models for different levels/phases of testing and/or communicating to different audiences. Integration with TDM, test data management tool, provides the ability to generate data or use identified (preset or parametrized) test data. It allows significant expansion of test coverage and flexibility, without creating new tests and needing to maintain them. Integration with automation is one of the reasons we started to consider moving to this tool from our original tool for implementing test modeling. ARD appears to have better integration with Selenium. It also has the ability to record scripts/flows using Selenium Builder and import them into ARD, which will then create and optimize a model based on that. Measuring test coverage helps in one of the most challenging tasks. It has logic that can help to select the right set of scenarios and know what coverage it will provide. Handling loops in models was one of the challenges that we came across in our previous tool. ARD seems to have better control and logic over handling loops in models. View full review »

* The co-monitorial modeling. It lets us reduce the amount of scripts that we need to execute to get complete coverage. That is really important to us. * Traceability from requirements through test cases. View full review »

Bid Manager - Expert Continuous Testing at Sogeti UK
The solution is script-less, so you don't need IT knowledge to use the solution in an operational way. This is the most valuable feature. It's also only one of two or three tools that can do good automation on SAP, and in my opinion, it's the best of those. The test sheet is very good. There are algorithms that allow you to generate various test cases that guarantee maximum coverage. View full review »

VSwaminathan says in a qTest review
Product QA Manager at Reflexis Systems
The integration with Selenium and other tools is one of the valuable features. Importing of test cases is also good. The way we structure the test cases and the way we structure the execution cycles and the way we are able to integrate the requirements with the test cases and then generate reports, they're all pretty awesome. There is a qTest reporting engine and they have Insights which is separate from the standard, conventional reports. Insights is pretty good. Once you get into it and start to understand how it has been designed, you will be able to take advantage of all the features. The reporting is awesome. The way you get the stats and other critical information from the test reports in qTest is good. View full review »

Manager, IT Quality Assurance (EDM/ITSRC/Infrastructure) at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
The solution's real-time integration with JIRA is seamless. With ALM or QC, we had an additional plugin which was a schedule-based integration between the tool and JIRA. Sometimes things errored out and there were too many integration issues. We didn't have an updated sync-up between JIRA and Quality Center. Quality Center was predominantly used by testers and JIRA was being used by other users in our company, including PMs, DSAs, and devs. qTest solved one of those challenges for us. The reports qTest provides to executives are pretty good because what we do is mimic what we used to do with Quality Center: defect reports, throughput reports, aging reports, and an execution summary report to show how many test cases there have been. The executives are reviewing them and they do not find any difference between what we had in Quality Center versus what we are doing in qTest. View full review »
RobinaLaughlin says in a qTest review
Assistant Vice President, IT Quality Assurance at Guardian Life Insurance
We are using qTest Manager and qTest Insights, primarily. We have a global testing team, so we needed a centralized, easy, web-based interface for accessing all of our testing and being able to manage test cases. We ship over 400 projects a year, so we needed something that was going to scale to that. That's what the Manager piece is for. The Insights piece is for obtaining where we are in terms of status and finding out about metrics, etc. It provides insight into the status of my testing. Also, we are fully integrated with JIRA, so back and forth, we use JIRA as an agile shop. JIRA does all of our user stories, etc., and is the main source for defects. qTest Manager is the testing hub. The integration between the two has been great, pretty much seamless. We did run into one defect with volume, but the 9.7.1 release fixed that. View full review »

Testing Lead Manager at Pdc Energy
We get the most benefit from the * test library * test execution. There is also a high level of reporting provided in the tool and you can extract reporting out of the tool. That has been very beneficial. Ease of use is another helpful aspect. Right now, during the UAT, we have a lot of business users using the tool. They test the UAT scripts. The team quickly adapted to the tool. I was able to roll it out and I was actually commended by several internal people, as well as external consultants who were doing assessments, as to how things had changed. They were shocked that I was able to implement the tool so quickly. I had never used the tool before either. I received a trial copy of the tool and was able to quickly implement it and have it up and running for the team. View full review »
NancyMcClanahan says in a qTest review
Quality Assurance Team Lead at Parkview Health
The most valuable features are the execution side of it and the tracking of defects. I like the way it structures a project. We have a PMO that does project management. That project management then triggers a process that tells us that it's going to be tested at a certain date. We're able to put the test cases into qTest or modify something that's already there, so it's a reusable-type pf environment. It is very important that we can do that and change our test data as needed, especially for our EHR system. View full review »

Global QA Manager at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
The most valuable features are * Tosca BI * Tosca Commander. Tosca BI is important to make sure that our data integrity is in check and validated; to make sure our data is good. Our data is the number-one important driver for our company, so if that's not good, we have some big problems. Tosca Commander lets any test cases that are UI driven validate, and tests the UI and expected results. Also, the nice thing about the model's solution is that we're able to build out the modules within Tosca, to facilitate ease of maintaining the test cases. It allows one spot to do an update and that flows through all the test cases that need to be updated. View full review »
RyanO'Neill says in a qTest review
Sr. Manager Quality Assurance at Forcepoint LLC (Formerly Raytheon|Websense)
Among the most valuable features are * test automation tracking * JIRA linking * defect tracking * reporting. The test automation tracking is valuable because our automated testing systems are distributed and they did not necessarily have a single point where they would come together and be reported. Having all of them report back to qTest, and having one central place where all of my test executions are tracked and reported on, is incredibly valuable because it saves time. It allows me to just look at and use one place, and one reporting solution, to track all my executions and the defects that are generated from those. The integration with JIRA allows us to have an integration between both our automation testing systems, such as Jenkins, through qTest, and into JIRA. It allows all that data to be transferred and distributed among all the different stakeholders within the organizations. That way I don't even have to do reporting. They can just look in JIRA and see what the testing results were. It's very simple for me. It makes my life a little easier so I don't have to generate so many reports. View full review »

I really like the dashboards in this solution. They are good for the team, where you can provide announcements and you can organize it the way you want. I like the Kanban board. It is very useful in terms of seeing who is working on what and what the current status of work is. I know that they want to discontinue the version control feature, but I like it because for simple applications, it works. View full review »
