What is most valuable?

In the case of a big epic, we are able to create it. Then, based on backlog creation, we will be able to create the user stories under that particular feature. Also, defects can be traced in the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The team I am working with was never into Agile before. We have a daily scrum-call and before that, we have to define all the tasks that we are going to work on for a number of sprints. For example… more»

What needs improvement?

The solution could be more user-friendly. For example, attachments could be icon-based to make it easier for the user to notice them. Overall, it would be nice, from the user-interface point of view… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

This is our first such solution.

What other advice do I have?

For us, the process of implementing it starts with getting in touch with one of our internal teams and giving a business case for why we are going to use this tool and what the users' rights will be… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

There are other tools in the market and our organization was using something, but I don't remember the name of the tool.

What is most valuable?

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… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Using the test modeling approach helped * get early alignment on requirements * prevent design and implementation defects in earlier development phases if models were used… more»

What needs improvement?

Aligning models so they look clear and readable without having to move boxes around. Saving different subsets of test cases, use cases, etc., of a given diagram, for… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Recommendation is to go with concurrent licenses as oppose to seat license; this gives more flexibility.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used another test modeling solution. ARD has better integration with automated test scripting and with test data management. We also switched to it because we were… more»

What other advice do I have?

It is important to ensure that people first understand modeling concepts and the organization's defined modeling best practices before jumping into tool implementation. It… more»

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… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have not previously used a test case design tool. The company was just using ALM for our test management: creating manual test cases, designing and planning, requirements, and traceability.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise to use this product, because it is a good way to create models and establish model-based process testing. The optimization technique with integrations is seamless, and a very good tool. It gives us an idea of creating the… more»

What is most valuable?

CA ARD has some beautiful features which I haven't found anywhere else. For example, when designing or creating our test cases and doing scenarios, we are able to restrict our flows. If we take a data link between two processes, we can actually restrict it, so that in production, if our… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We used to provide RTMs to the technical team or the testing team, but now, CA ARD is an extra helping hand. We can provide the exact scope of testing or development to the technical team. That enhances things at the organizational level.

What needs improvement?

We are using many tools in our projects, like Tosca, but CA ARD is a very closed tool. It doesn't provide integration with Tosca. The possibility of creating a test case and exporting it into Tosca is not available. Integration with end-to-end automation tools, like Worksoft or Tosca, is not… more»

What other advice do I have?

I have to become more familiar with the automation part of CA ARD, and then maybe I'll come to the point of saying that it is a good tool which enables you to take your automation, the testing and development, from deployment and designing of your test case, to pushing them into your testing module… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It reduced the effort required for test case creation, test case review, automation script generation, and maintenance of test cases and automation scripts. We were able to reduce our QA team size by… more»

What needs improvement?

ARD is constantly improving, and CA is always working on adding new features. Integration with Agile management tools can be improved, i.e., mainly test case maintenance and linking test cases to the… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We sought out this solution because we needed to automate our regression test cases. Application SMEs without automation scripting experience were our main challenge. When we got introduced to ARD, we… more»

What other advice do I have?

If you are looking to implement model-based testing, reduce the effort required for documenting the requirements, test case creation, automation script generation, maintenance of test cases, and… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate any other solutions.

CA Agile Requirements Designer Questions

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.
