Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""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."

"This tool can be used anywhere and on any device.""The most valuable feature is the flexibility of the configuration, being able to configure it to suit your own needs.""The features that we find most valuable are the Workflow, Scrum workflow, and Dashboards.""The most valuable feature is the full integration between Work management, Source code management, and Test Automation.""The most valuable features are the customized Dashboard, Sprint Planning, and Automatic Notifications.""The most valuable feature is the Burndown Chart to see work that is outstanding.""This solution assists us with being able to quickly and easily start sprints and keep accurate track of them, including billing using a time-tracking add-on.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the source linking on the commit level to git."

Cons
"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.""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."

More Broadcom Agile Requirements Designer Cons »

"The user interface and views on different devices should be improved.""The plugin management needs a lot of work.""It would be very useful to have drag and drop time tracking.""The hierarchy for Jira tickets is too flat.""This solution would be improved with the inclusion of integration with SVN, and auto-sync with the build release number.""The reporting needs to be improved.""The permissions can be challenging to get right.""Backlog pruning and visualization are poor."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Recommendation is to go with concurrent licenses as oppose to seat license; this gives more flexibility."

More Broadcom Agile Requirements Designer Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We feel that the product is a good value for the cost.""Licensing is on a monthly basis, and it is based on what you use.""To try this solution, use their cloud offering to get familiar. After that, it's in my view worth the money.""I don't feel that price is an issue.""It is not too expensive. It is just comparative to other tools like Microsoft Teams.""I am not sure if the client is using a commercial version. I think it is on a per-user basis, and it is around 15 Canadian dollars for a user, but I'm not sure. It also has a free version.""As a company, we get a subsidized price, and it's lower than what's quoted on their website.""We are using the enterprise license which is nice because it ensures that we always have the latest versions of Jira software."
