A complete test management tool that facilitates developers' unit testing
Pros and Cons
  • "It really helps developers execute scenarios through DTP and share reports/results across the teams."
  • "Parallel execution: It would help it multiple executions could be done at the same time."

What is most valuable?

Complete test management tool. It really helps developers execute scenarios through DTP and share reports/results across the teams. It also gives a sense to dev team that they can take all appropriate actions there only.

How has it helped my organization?

Developer can also use this tool for their unit testing in automated way.

What needs improvement?

Parallel execution: It would help it multiple executions could be done at the same time. This would reduce the execution time, helping achieve goals on time, and with less effort required. I use the different licenses to manage this issue and it can be controlled by different users for functional testing.

For how long have I used the solution?

Around three years.

Customizable dashboards show project health. Every team member gets notified about their performance and no one gets lost in what to do.

What is most valuable?

  • Customizable dashboards show how healthy the project is

I have been using it for two years.

I have not encountered any remarkable deployment issues.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It’s difficult to provide ROI information, because it depends on the costumer and how it uses the product. With this product, it probably takes at least three months to see ROI.

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

The vendor sells perpetual licenses; could use SaaS. Price is fair.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this product, we evaluated it against SonarQube.

No remarkable advice; solution is really useful and should be adopted if the budget allows it.

Active Directory authorisation through LDAP​ is valuable but integration with other tools would be welcomed.​

Valuable Features

Ease of use and administration. Active Directory authorisation through LDAP.

Improvements to My Organization

The Parasoft Concerto has enabled the company's test teams to automate the most common and trivial tests which is saving time and delivering consistency.

Room for Improvement

Integration with other tools (e.g. JIRA, statistics for Splunk) would be welcomed.

Use of Solution

Over 1 year

Deployment Issues

Deployment was fast and smooth - no issues encountered.

Stability Issues

Working as expected. One service - easy to check and monitor.

Scalability Issues

Needs individual licence for every new slot which requires a code to be provided by the vendor and activated manually.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Good enough.

Technical Support:

Basic but enough.

Initial Setup

The initial setup is following the standard installation process with a few prompts for DB settings, LDAP etc. I would say quite a straightforward process.

Implementation Team

Have been working with vendor SME in-house which I find knowledgeable and assisting.

Other Advice

You can name the application internally (e.g. Automap, TT1) to reduce confusion if someday a new instance is required. Even though it is a small app creating separate Active Directory group(s) to manage app access and permissions level could pay off from managing and troubleshooting point of view.
