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.

We can get an entire project into a single repository where we can view all the data in detail. This is where we keep all our test cases where everyone can reference them. This provides everyone access to the test cases and artifacts via the cloud. There is no need to contact anyone.Ability to customize modules, particularly Defect Tracking module on company specific needsBy using QC we broke down silos (of teams), improved the organization of our tests, have a much better view of the testing status, and became much quicker in providing test results with document generation.From reporting to team management, everything is better now.The AI and functionality interface are useful.It has a good response time.The ability to integrate this solution with other applications is helpful. If there is automation, it comes with improved quality and speed.This solution is open and very easy to integrate. The interface is good too.

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.

The version of Micro Focus ALM that we use only works through Internet Explorer (IE). We have to communicate to everyone that they can only use IE with the solution. This is a big limitation. We should be free to use any type of browser or operating system. We have customers and partners who are unable to log into the system and enter their defects because they work on a different operating system.The BPT also known as Business Process Testing can sometimes be very time intensive and sometimes might not be very intuitive to someone who is not familiar with BPT.We would like to have support for agile development.ALM uses a waterfall approach. We have some hybrid approaches in the company and need a more agile approach.Certain features are lousy. Those features can drag the whole server down. There are times that the complex SQL queries are not easy to do within this solution.There needs to be improvement in the requirement samples. At the moment, they are very basic.It needs Pure-FTPd WebUI and single sign-on.

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

Read more »

Compared to the market, the price is high.Quality Center is pricey, but cheaper is not always less expensive.We have divided our licenses between Micro Focus ALM and ALM Octane. It works for us.It allows us to keep our costs low. I do not want to pay beyond a certain point for this solution.
