Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The setup is pretty straightforward.""ALM Quality Center's best features are the test lab, requirement tab, and report dashboard.""Defect management is very good.""The initial setup is straightforward. It's not too hard to deploy.""The tools could be useful if we were utilizing them more effectively""Most of the features that I like the best are more on the analytics side.""It has a brand new look and feel. It comes with a new dashboard that looks nice, and you can see exactly what you have been working with.""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."

Cons
"Currently, what's missing in the solution is the ability for users to see the ongoing scenarios and the status of those scenarios versus the requirements. As for the management tools, they also need to be improved so users can have a better idea of what's going on in just one look, so they can manage testing activities better.""If they could improve their BPT business components that would be good""We are looking for more automation capabilities.""HP-QC does not support Agile. It is designed for Waterfall. This is the number one issue that we're facing right now, which is why we want to look for another tool. We're a pharmaceutical services company, so we require electronic signatures in a tool, but this functionality isn't available in HP-QC. We don't have 21 CFR, Part 11, electronic signatures, and we need compliant electronic signatures. Some of the ALM tools can toggle between tabular format and document format for requirements, but the same feature is not available in this solution. There is also no concept of base-lining or versioning. It doesn't exist.""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.""Only Internet Explorer is supported. That is a big problem. They don't support Chrome and Firefox and so on.""Micro Focus is an expensive tool.""Quality Center's UI is outdated, and it's a little bit slow on the login part and different parts of the application. That's why we're switching solutions. I believe most companies are switching to Octane or something else. Micro Focus should enhance the interface and reports."

"Oracle Application Testing Suite does encounter some lag. When I am trying to record something, the tool gets stuck.""Oracle Application Testing Suite could improve by offering desktop-based application automation. It is lacking in this area at the moment."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I don't know the exact numbers, but I know it is pricey. When we talked to the sales reps we work with from our company, they say, "Well, Micro Focus will never lose on price." So, they are willing to do a lot of negotiating if it is required."
  • "Micro Focus ALM Quality Center is very expensive."
  • "It is very expensive as compared to other tools. We didn't get their premier version. It is a lesser version, and to upgrade, there will be an additional cost for us."
  • "The cost of licensing depends on the number of VMs that you are running test cases on and it is not cheap."
  • "Quality Center is pricey, but cheaper is not always less expensive."
  • "It's a perpetual license."
  • "I've never been in the procurement process for it. I don't think it is cheap. Some of the features can be quite expensive."
  • "Pricing could be improved as it's high-priced. I don't exactly know the pricing point, but previously, I know that it was really high so less people were able to use it for their projects."
