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.

I think SpiraTest is well suited as a test suite, but in situations where the team is already using multiple products from one particular provider, it may be better to go with that provider's test solution. This is because integrations are very important nowadays, and should be considered when picking your project management software.It should be noted that management selected SpiraTest primarily due to the low cost of the test software. I'm less familiar with other test software in the field, but if cost is an issue, you should take a look at SpiraTest.

Pros

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

SpiraTest

  • A clean view of test case steps, expected results and the ability to record a result for each step quickly on one page per test set. This really helps testers work through executing manual test cases.
  • Hierarchical structure of releases and builds, requirements, and test cases.
  • Can quickly build test sets and/or test runs per build/release.
  • Simple identification of each test case, requirement, test run, build, release, etc.

Cons

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.

  • Training can be difficult to find at times.
  • Basic reporting can become very verbose unless you set lots of filters and parameters.
  • The ability to customize some of the verbiage in the application would help bridge the gap between translating what SpiraTest's testing terminology is and the company culture uses for testing terminology.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Quality Center

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

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.

  • SpiraTest can be improved in terms of its dashboard and reporting. This will be really helpful for the management as well.
