Cons
"Adding support for uploading a collection of test cases would be a helpful addition.""I think it's fine from a performance perspective but usability is something that needs improvement.""Currently, the user interface needs to be more user-friendly."

More IBM Rational Quality Manager Cons »

"It's not easy to create a custom report. It's not straightforward. A good improvement would be if there was a way to report and create a custom report without using a plugin or scripting language.""I've encountered at some point, some difficulties on the administration side, but I don't remember exactly what they were.""It would be useful if it had its own issue management system. At the moment, it's purely a test management tool and you have to link to a defect management tool, like JIRA. It would be useful if there was an option to use its own defect management tool so that it's integrated and not two separate tools."
