Consider the introduction of the tool in terms of the proper education of the teams who will adapt it. I think any introduction of such a tool requires proper training. It's not so intuitive that people can trust it. If you just give it to people directly, without any training, then they can get it wrong. Make sure to invest in training Smooth integration with JIRA, but I think this is not realistic. The IBM suite is kind of independent and it's getting more niche because it's not such a big community of users. I would rate it a seven out of ten.

The main competitor of IBM's test management tool is Quality Center. I feel they may have a more user-friendly interface. However, IBM offers a very good management tool and it's integrated well with the different tracking and design testing solutions. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. From a reliability and scalability perspective, it's a good tool. It's well-structured. If they did some upgrades to the interface, it would be just about perfect and I'd rate it closer to nine or nine and a half.

We use it to manage the testing. We have both manual and automated testing and we have many teams in DHL IT services that are designing some solutions. It's part of the whole life cycle. So they implement that and then test it. We adopt more and more Agile or DevOps practices, like Scrum or Kanban, and as a part of that, the work which is implemented is tested. Historically we did a lot more manual tasks but more and more we are automating the tests and using the automation. We trigger some test automation tools from Rational Quality Manager. For example, we use Selenium or Micro Focus Quick Test Professional, or QTP. These aren't typical but we also trigger integration tests. For example, the Rational Integration Tester is triggered by RQM as well.

We are a consultancy and we use this solution to create a testing plan, that includes test cases, for our clients. It is part of a larger suite of tools that includes Rational Functional Tester, which helps to automate the process.
