Helix ALM (formerly TestTrack)

Helix ALM is very well suited for maintaining traceability between user needs, requirements and tests for medical device design controls. It allows users to customize the reports to create a traceability matrix or any other reports that are needed. It is also a good program for tracking issues and bugs and for storing/linking verification and validation test protocols and reports

Micro Focus LoadRunner

HP LoadRunner is well suited where we need to create a number of VUsers for testing application's performance. It's one of the best tools for application performance testing. It can integrate with most of CRM / ERP systems and thus provides wide applicability. The monitoring and analysis interface is user-friendly, thus providing the users with the application health and status quickly.However, it's not required for use if the application is not very complex or if the business enterprise is small / medium. Also, though the tool is efficient, additional cost apart from the license is required to purchase other modules and it is expensive if 24x7 support is required.

Cons

Helix ALM (formerly TestTrack)

  • Better integration with electronic document control systems like Arena PLM.
  • Easier setup in the back end (customization is available but the interface is not intuitive).

  • HP LoadRunner with new patches and releases sometimes makes no longer support older version of various protocols like Citrix, which makes the task time-consuming when using older versions of LoadRunner for some of the cases. So it should support older version as well while upgrading.
  • Configuring HP LoadRunner over the firewall involves lots of configuration and may be troublesome. So, there should be a script (power shell script for Windows or shell script for Linux users) to make it easy to use and with less pain.
  • I would like to see the RunTime Viewer of Vugen in HPLoadRunner based on the browser I selected in the run-time configuration to make it feel more realistic as a real user.
  • Licensing cost is very high when we need to perform a test on application for a specific group of users.

The support from Perforce has been extensive and allowed us to customize the setup of Helix ALM specific to our needs. They also hosted training sessions for our users and administrators and provided us with troubleshooting help during initial setup.

Customer service is not that great. It's difficult to get hold of someone if an issue is supposed to be addressed on an urgent basis. No online chat service readily available.

The other tools that we evaluated did not have all of the capabilities and customization that Helix ALM had to offer and therefore we decided to select Helix ALM

HP performance center stacks up very well for front end applications. Need more improvements for API performance testing.

Return on Investment

Helix ALM (formerly TestTrack)

  • Improved management of requirements, risks and bugs to make sure they don't get lost in emails or long documents.

  • The scripts created with traditional web/http protocol are not robust thus re-scripting is required after most every code drop. Troubleshooting and fixing the issue takes more time therefore in most cases we do re-scripting to keep it simple and save time.
  • In ideal world you would rather spend more time doing testing than scripting in that case mostly you could use an Ajax TruClient protocol. This type of script will only fail when an object in the application is removed or changed completely. This way of scripting will save you more time and helps you maintain the scripts with less re-work effort on a release basis. On the long run you will have a better ROI when you use Ajax TruClient protocol for scripting.
