Overall Satisfaction with Quality Center (formerly HP Quality Center)

It is being used across the whole organization/multiple departments. It helps track defects and projects effectively.
  • Defect lifecycle/tracking.
  • Script execution uniquely by projects.
  • Ability to integrate with Microsoft Excel and email clients.
  • Dashboard/reporting/SQL services.
  • 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.
  • Positive impact as it keeps projects organized.
  • Negative - it sometimes becomes an overhead if we are tracking smaller projects and changes.
  • Customized reports are an integral part of an organization. We cant expect that QC is used at every level in an organization. It needs to have a reporting for users who cant access QC in an organization in a web format so that anyone can access in real-time.
  • Add an option to copy/clone defects or store defect templates to prevent duplicate efforts.
HP is unique in its own way. We chose HP because it is standard and an end-to-end solution. However, we also use other tools for the same work that we currently do. HP is good for waterfall projects. It has an excellent defect management module.
HP is well suited when you are a part of large projects in a waterfall methodology. It is useful to track bugs, scripts, and execution status of projects.

It is less appropriate for Agile methodology as requirements are done in the form of user-stories. So, in that case, we would not be able to use this tool at all. Some reporting features require refinement and major changes. No bug learning/AI features. QC has a few bugs in itself when it comes to caps ON/OFF when searching for defects. That small improvement would help.
