Cons
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.They should focus on giving greater value to the IoT and social networks.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.The QA needs improvement.

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.
