QA Group Manager at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees

What is most valuable?

* 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... more»

What needs improvement?

The only thing CA does not have today is a testing engine. So they have got the requirements piece, SDLC lifecycle with Rally (or whatever it is called now), but they do not have an engine to house test scripts to really pull together the testing pieces of it like HPE does. Really that is the piece that I would love to see them either acquire, build, or figure... more»

What is most valuable?

There are tons of really valuable features. First of all, it's a model-based testing tool and the market of model-based testing is pretty narrow, and there are few offerings. I did extensive research in this area and at the moment CA Agile... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have a number of challenges and one of the methods we use to solve these is model-based testing. That's what we're researching right now. We're doing a proof of concept with Agile Requirements Designer, which is pretty feature rich. ARD... more»

What needs improvement?

I don't know what improvements to make since we are not yet using this in production. We are still in the preliminary stages of testing. I plan to do more research on it. They're already doing the right thing. They're improving the... more»

Front Line Manager at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Jul 05 2018

What is most valuable?

I like the optimization, because it gives me an idea of the minimum number of test cases. It also gives me an idea of coverage. The integrations with other tools is very important for our continuous testing process.

How has it helped my organization?

We are trying to establish a process. As of now, we have not come to a point where we are only using ARD with other tools. We are trying to find better ways of how to use it. We have just done a type of PoC, where we have some model and... more»

What needs improvement?

I was looking into some pre-release testing on the integrations with CA Application Test, and when I exposed the test directly to App Test, I found that the tests which we directly exposed have one set of data that we can directly expose and... more»

Senior IT Manager at a manufacturing company with 1,001-5,000 employees

What is most valuable?

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.

How has it helped my organization?

There are three major benefits. The first one is there is a time savings. It's much faster to create the model than it is to generate test cases. It's much faster to update the test cases in the model than it is to update them manually. The... more»

What needs improvement?

We're actually participating with CA to provide some enhancement requests on new features we'd like to see. I can't think of any specific ones off the top of my head, but I know they are evaluating, and they have already provided us features... more»

What is most valuable?

* 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.

How has it helped my organization?

It has been pretty dramatic. We have rolled it out across many of our digital teams. In the first year, we saw about a 70% reduction in our script creation time. So, we went from five days per sprint to one day, one to one and a half days per... more»

What needs improvement?

* A better alignment to compliance-related requirements and being able to get visibility into those. It is really important for our industry. * Test data: There is Test Data On-Demand and there is the vTDM solution. We would like to see a... more»

What is CA Agile Requirements Designer?

CA Agile Requirements Designer is an end-to-end requirements gathering, test automation and test case design tool which drastically reduces manual testing effort and enables organizations to deliver quality software to market earlier and at less cost. The optimal set of manual or automated tests can be derived automatically from requirements modeled as unambiguous flowcharts and are linked to the right data and expected results. These tests are updated automatically when the requirements change, allowing organizations to deliver quality software which reflects changing user needs.
