TestRail
Chose TestRail
TestRail definitely saves times. I work in a company that consists of several development teams, all of which have different processes. Some of the teams leverage test cases, some do not. I've noticed that the turn around time it takes for me to pick up a ticket, QA it, and …

Chose Tricentis qTest
All of them offer formidable solutions in the test management realm, but each one caters to different niche and need. qTest distinguishes itself with its deep integration capabilities, especially with Agile and DevOps tools, enabling streamlined CI/CD process. Its modern, …
Chose Tricentis qTest
- It was not our decision to use qTest as a tool, as this was a management decision.
- Since I have used many Test Management Tools I can compare for e.g
The Reporting and Statistics in qTest is very impressive.
Chose Tricentis qTest
Tricentis qtest is well suited as it serves the purpose for both quality assurance and business management. It is very simple for non technical users to write test cases in free hand and they don’t have to bother about traceability as it is automatically handled by this …
Chose Tricentis qTest
I'm not the decision maker, so I can't provide objective comparison criteria, but I can say that Tricentis QTest is a reliable tool for Test Management.

IDERA (an Idera, Inc. company)
The integration with other tools, and their user friendly layout and design. It's very comfortable to use and is way better than other tools with the Automation Testing tools, thanks to the great API that is included. Sometimes the integration with Jira is a little faulty, but the links to that tool usually work well. It could be cool if it had a better following for the bug items that were registered on other tools.

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.

Cons
IDERA (an Idera, Inc. company)
  • Integration with Jira seems [a] little faulty.
  • Increase the API call limit for different editions.
  • Better way to trigger automation suites from TestRail.

Tricentis
  • 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.

TestRail definitely saves times. I work in a company that consists of several development teams, all of which have different processes. Some of the teams leverage test cases, some do not. I've noticed that the turn around time it takes for me to pick up a ticket, QA it, and then pass/fail/send feedback is much faster when there is a test case created as I'm not reading through ticket description/comments to figure out what needs to be QA'd.

  • Better organization and centralization of test cases has led to more cohesive team collaboration
  • Speed to delivery, deployments to production, are mostly maintained
  • Performance issues have led to testing delays requiring the team to switch to other methods which contributed to QA bottleneck issues and sometimes even missed sprint commitments
