More Conformiq Pros →

"We are able to use Micro Focus ALM Quality Center for test management, defect management, test process, test governance activities, and requirement management. We are able to achieve all of this, the solution is very useful.""The most valuable feature of Micro Focus ALM Quality Center is the alignment of the test to the execution and the linking of the defects to the two. It automatically links any issues you have to the test.""The solution is very user-friendly.""Ability to customize modules, particularly Defect Tracking module on company specific needs""What's most valuable in Micro Focus ALM Quality Center is that it's useful for these activities: test designing, test planning, and test execution.""It is a tool, and it works. It has got good linkage and good traceability between the test cases and the defects. It has got lots of features for testing.""The independent view of elevated access is good.""The tools could be useful if we were utilizing them more effectively"

"Even though the 4.1 version is a far-improved version from its earlier avatars, the performance of test generation is still an issue on real-time models we have.""I would like to see the output data optionally used as input for the model, as further action in the flow.""It would be helpful to have a feature in the tool's UI to map object locators within the system."

More Conformiq Cons →

"ALM Quality Center could be improved with more techniques to manage Agile processes.""The solution needs to offer support for Agile. Currently, ALM only supports Waterfall.""I would like to be able to search easier, not just do SQL queries, being able to do free keyword searches on the data. That's valuable.""The UFT tests don't work very well and it seems to depend on things as simple as the screen resolution on a machine that I've moved to.""The product is good, it's great, but when compared to other products with the latest methodologies, or when rating it as a software development tool, then I'll have to rate it with a lower score because there's a lot of other great tools where you can interconnect them, use them, scale them, and leverage. It all depends on the cost.""It can be quite clunky, and it can easily be configured badly, which I've seen in a couple of places. If it is configured badly, it can be very hard to use. It is not so easy to integrate with other products. I've not used Micro Focus in a proper CI/CD pipeline, and I haven't managed to get that working because that has not been my focus. So, I find it hard. I've often lost the information because it had committed badly. It doesn't commit very well sometimes, but that might have to do with the sites that I was working at and the way they had configured it.""There's room for improvement in the requirements traceability with Micro Focus ALM Quality Center. That could use an uplift.""The integration could be improved because with Agile technology you are working more quickly than with a top-down methodology."
