I would definitely recommend Buildkite for anyone who needs a decent CI solution for 50+ on AWS instance without paying huge amount for AWS Build and code deploy tools.

Tricentis
The qTest is well-suited for organizations transitioning to Agile or DevOps frameworks. It Streamlines test management with real-time collaboration and integrates with popular CI/CD tools. It excels in complex, large-scale projects needing centralized test cases management, traceability, and detailed reporting. However, organizations on a tight budget might find it cost prohibitive compared to simpler, low-cost alternatives.

Tricentis
  • Highly customizable: we were able to organize our test cases in unique ways that made our work easier.
  • Connectivity with Jira: being able to pull requirements information in from Jira was a big point for us.
  • Standalone tool: Being a standalone tool on a dedicated server, we were able to have access to our tests regardless of whether our Jira server was down.

  • In requirements , we can't add multiple test cases at once, or search multiple cases at once, need to do one by one. Here actually qtest needs to improve.
  • Linking cloud hosted qtest and on-premise TOSCA is very difficult especially when you are working with client system with security wall. It requires tunnelling software which is not recommended.
