What is most valuable?

The Business Process Testing module and approach to testing in QC is its most valuable feature.

How has it helped my organization?

For manual test cases, we need to write test case each time and if any update or CR comes then we need to go to each test case and update, which is very time consuming. But, with BPT we can update it in less time as would otherwise take to… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see a bit of improvement in its look and feel.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Earlier I used Mantis, but it was not user friendly and had no functionality apart from defect tracking. But HP QC is defect tracking by default. Test Case Execution tracking and reporting functionality which will serve all purposes for… more»

What other advice do I have?

For testing processes and improvements, I would suggest you use this product. But, if you're looking at cost, then that might be a concern, but no doubt it is the best tool for testing.

What is most valuable?

So the first impression that hits me about HP UFT 14.0 (formerly QTP) is that it seems to be a whole lot faster! But that could be subjective, as I'm running it on a high end gaming system. And my… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We identified an object that was supposed to have a width of 30 characters, but instead had 100,000. No manual tester would have found it, forcing developers to take a second look at all objects which… more»

What needs improvement?

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… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

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… more»

What other advice do I have?

Take tool training by someone with years of experience. HP, Orasi and RTTS all offer the level of training that gets you to the advanced state quickly. And if you might be longing for the IDE toolset… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

If Selenium is your thing then make it easy on yourself with LeanFT, aka UFT Pro. This gets you the easy object recognition of UFT, in Java, plus execution of concurrent test cases in multiple… more»

What is most valuable?

A comprehensive solution aiming for total Test management. It has bindings with HP QTP which is a test automation tool. With the addition of BPT (Business Process Testing), QC along with QTP has been the choice for test automation in most of the IT businesses.

How has it helped my organization?

Maintenance of test artifacts becomes messy when there are many scripts and supporting test artifacts. HP QC makes it easier to maintain the scripts and also organize them into various business areas.

What needs improvement?

Backup strategy is lacking in QC. Once the QC server crashes, all your automation artifacts are unrecoverable. Though we can create QC project files to create a backup, there is size limitation when you restore the backup.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I have worked on TFS. The features of TFS are limited when compared to QC.

What do you think of Quality Center?

Valuable Features:

The integration with MS Excel, test suite upload feature, Document builder and the test run process.

Improvements to My Organization:

Helps in providing an archive of test suites for easy regression. Also helps to keep track of the time spent on test executions, and defect management.

Use of Solution:

Two years plus.

Deployment Issues:

The Client was needed in our network environment because the Web GUI was found to be unstable.

Stability Issues:

The client crashes every so often, but only when left idle for a while.

Other Advice:

Majority of the tests done by my company are manual so QC serves majorly as a depository for our client.
