Quotes From Members

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

Pros
By 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.Ability to customize modules, particularly Defect Tracking module on company specific needsThe enhanced dashboards capabilities are useful for senior management to view the progress of releases under the portfolio in one go and also drill down to the graphs.By standardizing our template, we publish reports at the business unit level.I like the traceability, especially between requirements, testing, and defects.You can do your development from start to finish: starting with the requirements, ending with defects, and testing in-between.You can plan ahead with all the requirements and the test lab set it up as a library, then go do multiple testing times, recording the default that's in the system.Cross project customization through template really helps to maintain standards with respect to fields, workflows throughout the available projects.

Cons
We would like to have support for agile development.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.I would rate it a 10 if it had the template functionality on the web side, had better interfaces between other applications, so that we didn't have dual data entry or have to set up our own migrations.The downside is that the Quality Center's only been available on Windows for years, but not on Mac.It is nice, but it does have some weaknesses. It's a bit hard to go back and change the requirement tool after setup.Defect ageing reports need to be included as built-in.There are always new features and more support for new and legacy technology architectures with each release. But the bad news is a growing list of long-standing issues with the product rarely gets addressed.The UI is very dated. Most applications these days have a light UI that can be accessed by pretty much any browser; QC still uses a UI which has a look almost the same for the past 20 years.

We would like support for the agile and behavior-driven development (BDD) approaches.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Quality Center is pricey, but cheaper is not always less expensive.I feel that the licenses are expensive. ​It has several limitations in adapting its agility easily.Sure, HP UFT is not free. But consider what you get for that cost: A stable product that is easy to use; the kitchen sink of technology stack support; decades of code (which in many cases actually is free); a version that is a stepping stone to an easier Selenium design; and a support base that is more that just the kindness of strangers.HPE has one of the most rigid, inflexible, and super expensive license models.
