Overall Satisfaction with IBM Rational Quality Manager

My Department "Quality Department" uses IBM Rational Quality Manager as the main system that holds everything related to Quality like Test Cases, Test Plans, Test Suites, Execution Records, etc. The Application has a lot of features and helped us keep track of all testing activities conducted through different projects across the organization. We keep all of our testing artifacts on it as well.
  • Test Cases Management
  • Test Execution Management
  • Seamless Integration with IBM RTC and IBM RM
  • User Interface and User Experience needs to be Improved
  • No Defect Management
  • Integration with Automated Scripts needs to be easier
  • Some features depend on IBM RTC
  • Test Cases Management
  • Test Execution Results Management
  • Test Plans Management
  • Better Management of Testing Artifacts
  • Helped us enforce Testing Process
  • Helped us in keeping track of Test Execution Results for each Build
We have used TestLink before using IBM Rational Quality Manager and there is no comparison between them as TestLink will lose in every aspect against IBM Rational Quality Manager. I think it was a very good decision to migrate to it instead of TestLink despite the problems in the User Experience.

Would you buy IBM Rational Quality Manager again?


IBM Rational Quality Manager is well suited to be used by the Quality Team in any Software Project. The Application provides good features to track Test Cases and Test Execution Results. On the other hand, the Application suffers from a very Old User Interface and a Very Bad overall User Experience. You have to go through very long and complicated steps to something which is not intuitive at all. Also, some features depend on having IBM RTC integrated with it.
