Test Automation Architect at CenturyLink

Built on web services which can be used to pull reports and metrics without SQL queries

What is our primary use case?

It's mainly about test cases and automation of data. I, as a test automation architect, collect all that data and show the metrics.

Pros and Cons

  • "Reporting is much easier and faster than Micro Focus ALM, with CA AC built on web services... Also, the data is more granular when it comes to tasks, iterations, sprints, and releases."

Pros and Cons

  • "I was able to create epics for our budgeting concerns and it helped me link everything together."
  • "I think there is a missing link with the development activity. Some developers are pushing in new versions of the code, but you cannot make the link from the user story to a specific application version."

What other advice do I have?

When considering a new solution, I always consider: * UI * Price
