Compuware File-AID

It's pretty good at creating an extract of a whole table, but not the best at grabbing all related tables in my experience. Pretty intuitive on setting up your test data categories. I also really like that it can either run via ISPF or via Topaz which was included with our purchase.

Quality Center

HP Quality Center is a solid product for release management and testing. It's got a pretty singular focus which is great in that it does that one thing well and keeps everything in one ecosystem from conceptualization of a solution to rollout and future regression testing. It's just sorely in need of a remodel. The product is far from perfect or refined.

Pros

Compuware File-AID

  • Extract/load data from one DB or table to another masking the data for testing.
  • Compare extracts against each other to ensure good baselines.
Sean Zef | TrustRadius Reviewer

Quality Center

  • It does particularly well to track defects and generate customized reports
  • Test scripts upload and requirement mapping can be done on this platform. This helps the developer understand exactly where the requirement is for a defect.
  • It has a role based model that lets developers do certain actions, and testers can play their own.
  • You can use it in the cloud

Cons

Compuware File-AID

  • I find it more obtuse to use than IBM Optim.
  • Related tables are difficult to incorporate.
Sean Zef | TrustRadius Reviewer

Quality Center

  • Reporting - there is no network-based easy to use reporting process in QC. We had to build an internal website for this.
  • Bug analysis - having an AI to understand bug patterns/similar bugs would be very helpful.
  • Inherit queries like getting and reporting bugs that were logged the same day or fixed on a given day would help.

Because it lets me track the test cases with detailed scenarios and is clearly separated in folders. Also the defect filter helps me filter only the ones that have been assigned to a particular area of interest. The availability of reports lets me see the essentials fields which I might be missing the data on and helps me to work on these instead of having to go through everything.

Support has been amazing compared to Optim. Further, new features are very regular with File-AID - I can't remember the last time Optim had a significant update. File-AID support is very receptive to feature requests and reported bugs, including sending out hotfixes quickly.

Alternatives Considered

Compuware File-AID

Optim is more user friendly in how it operates, in my opinion. It's less obtuse to figure out how to extract and mask the data required compared to File-AID. Further, Optim is easier to gather related tables, by far. I do prefer using File-AID via the Topaz GUI much more than using Optim via its GUI. Finally, I personally believe that File-AID is significantly faster to run than Optim - this could be a configuration issue.

HP needs to have better support for agile testing as compared to JIRA. JIRA also has some powerful integration using REST APIs. Silk Test's portability enables users to test applications more effectively with lower complexity and cost in comparison to HP QC.

Return on Investment

Compuware File-AID

  • Saves time creating production like data for testing.
  • Keeps that data safe from developers and need-to-know only.
Sean Zef | TrustRadius Reviewer

Quality Center

  • The biggest ROI I have seen is in the integration between the business analysts and their requirements and the QA teams and their process of writing their test cases/scripts. The testing framework is automatically generated based on the requirements and can be expanded upon easily. This allows for easy trace-ability, especially when requirements change and test scripts need to be identified for modification.
  • Once configured properly, it cuts down on many manual processes that are usually done by hand in spreadsheets.
