We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
You can group test cases together and track the execution of them.The program is very stable and scalable.We don't use technical support. We have an office in Austria that provides us with solutions. Also, this solution is pretty simple and user-friendly. We don't really need help with it.

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 functionality breaks down, we can restrict that and all the flows related to it will be removed from the test data set.In terms of meeting business challenges, it helped to shorten the dev/testing cycle by identifying requirements gaps early in the process, by having models shared within the development team. It helped increase test coverage and reduce the number of issues experienced by clients/customers.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.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.Defects can be traced in the solution.The optimization technique helps in giving us the minimum number of test cases with maximum coverage.

Cons
Lacking visual gadgets that go on a dashboard, pie charts, bar charts and histograms.I don't like that you need to use a lot of tabs. One test case takes 15-20 minutes and on Zephyr is take about 5-10 minutes.

CA ARD 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 provided by CA ARD as of now.Needs improvement in aligning models so they look clear and readable without having to move boxes around.It would help if it would save different subsets of test cases, use cases, etc., of a given diagram, for different purposes and provide an easy way to name those subsets.The solution could be more user-friendly. For example, attachments could be icon-based to make it easier for the user to notice them.Data flexibility is something which I would like to see, along with more integration with App Test.A template in App Test should be created in advance. This has proven to be time consuming. The process is not fully automated, because there is a lot of manual intervention is required.Integration with Agile management tools can be improved, i.e., mainly test case maintenance and linking test cases to the automation script.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The licensing is rather expensive for those that have many users.

Read more »

Recommendation is to go with concurrent licenses as oppose to seat license; this gives more flexibility.It is less costly when compared to other tools on the market.This tool reduces the cost associated with test cases, automation script generation, and maintenance costs.
