I think it's fine from a performance perspective but usability is something that needs improvement. It might be because of the complexity. They introduce some entities before people learn how these entities link to each other. It's not intuitive. Tools like JIRA qTest are much more intuitive, for example. Quality Center is simple as well.

Currently, the user interface needs to be more user-friendly. In one of IBM's main competitors, Quality Center, the options are much more straightforward than what is offered in IBM. IBM's platform is too complicated and should be simple like Quality Center's. The integration and enhancement features need to be across all the testing tools and there needs to be integration between them. The solution should simplify the import or export as well as support multiple extensions. Overall, the solution is not user-friendly, and you need a very technical person on it in order to run it properly.
