Some of them are listed below:
The tools should have the ability to import test cases from common tools like Excel and export test results into Excel and PDF
There is a low learning curve for end-users. The ability to quickly onboard technical and non-technical end-users quickly is great.
The tool should have powerful search capabilities and should provide the ability to search and filter based on test case information or attributes of the test cases.
The tool should provide the ability to search and replace text or field values and auto-replace content based on conditions.
|The tool should support Central management of test artifacts, and support for product structures for managing test artifacts.|
|The tool should be able to provide support for popular Testing Methodologies including Agile, Exploratory, TDD, Black box testing, Functional testing, etc., and should support Finastra’s shift-left philosophy.|
|The tool should support the ability to create and manage test cases and test steps.|
|The tool should be able to segregate manual and automated tests and should be able to measure effective automation at the product level. The tool should also provide the ability to link/associate manual tests to automated tests.|

On the top of that, testing scope was huge, it covers functional, security & performance testing & we want to track all the suites under one roof which was only feasible in HP ALM. Also we were planning to automate using HP UFT which also integrates well with HP ALM.
- Rally and VersionOne
For requirements, we have also reviewed Blue Print, Version One, etc. Currently, the go forward solution is being decided. Whatever the final requirements application is, integration with HP ALM will be done to support traceability.
For testing, there are a large number of applications available. None of them have the traceability functionality that ALM incorporates from a native perspective. That being said, many automation test tools can now be integrated with ALM, allowing users to run their automated tests and record results within ALM, while leveraging the better functionality provided by Selenium or other testing applications.
The biggest drawback for the defect module is the inability to report across multiple repositories within ALM. The solution for us was to leverage templates and add a reporting tool that pulls in the defect information into a single pool. We are transitioning away from ClearQuest because it is not as agile for changes and updates to the database and interface.
HP ALM is the "System of Record" in our organization. It gives visibility for an artifact throughout the delivery chain, which cut downs unnecessary bottlenecks and noise during releases.
