Decent tool, but versioning could use some improvement and it is hard to work with branches.

Features & Functionality

Pros: I like that it is a single repository for all requirements, test cases and test executions and maintains good trace records for reporting and audit support. Being able to customize workflows is a big plus that we use quite a bit. Like that our automation tools are able to connect directly(-ish).

Cons: Hard to generate verification reports that trace a requirement to a test case to an execution (without SQL queries). Even worse if you have multiple branches of the same code base that are based off the same requirements library. The versioning needs some work as does the interface. The interface can be pretty buggy at times and the user experience is not consistent with current technology. Reporting tools could be simplified and expanded.

Pros: This software has a wide variety of features available for tracking and maintaining the entire software development cycle. My experience has mostly been related to the testing cycles, the tool provides users the ability to keep track of the testing scenarios being performed and then reporting any detected defects. The users can also attach the evidences associated to the defects for the development team to access.

Cons: The only thin that I did not like about this product is the filters available. Instead of providing the plain check-boxes for the user to select filters, this tool provides functions like AND, OR, NOT to append the filters. That is the only feature that I find a little awkward to use.

Comments: This tool is an industry standard in the SDLC

Pros: The linking of defects to test runs is excellent. Any changes in mandatory fields or status of the defect triggers an e-mail and sent automatically to the user that the defect is assigned to. Also, ALM is considered to be an excellent auditing tool.

Cons: It's an awesome tool but it has one small issue: it takes a long while in the initialization process and a delay is noticeable when an incorrect password is entered during signin process.

Expensive but does a good job at application life-cycle management

Pros: Good UI,
Easy to track history,
Good option to provide access based on roles

Cons: Certainly the cost,
Support need improvement,
delay in response,
Can't open another window,
Can't copy & paste some repetitive tasks

Overall: I have used this tool basically for testing management. It comes with user-friendly UI, look & feel. Gives you complete control over tracking all stages of testing i.e. requirements, test case design, test execution & defects management. Easy for requirement tracking alongside test case so you can know how many test cases were written for each requirement very quick. Once u put test cases in test plan you can pull same any number of times in Test lab. Has a good screenshot tool.
On the other side, it comes with high cost. Connections to third-party applications are not that easy

Recommendations to other buyers: The tool has pretty high cost so unless you wanna use most of its features don't go for it. But if you really have huge requirement & need something which will manage everything

Robust tool that allows BA/Dev/Testing to effectively manage software.

Pros: Requirements, Test Plan and Test Lab are most used modules.
Reporting is also easy to use and powerful - to get custom queries as needed.

Cons: Don't particularly use the Defects area - find that JIRA works well in an Agile environment and for our needs

Comments:
Rich UI with good user experience.
Ease to track an application history.
Reports that can be generated are much appealing to clients.
Options for problem description is much better in terms of UI and work also.
The online platform takes less time to load the screen and this is unique among the tools that provide the same sort of needs.
History section and versioning control section are really feasible in order to get things done easier.
Defect tracking has highlights that can be used for sorting and assigning a task in an easier way.
Role-based access was easy to get things move on.
What do you dislike?
There was some time lag in response
Desktop Client has some issue on windows platform.
Generation of graphs needs some technical coding as well.
Support to this was limited I felt.

Comments: Keep track of project requirements and review requirement coverage and fulfillment with relation to test cases executed. In HP ALM you can easily review the project requirements and assess the current status by looking at passed and failed requirements based on the execution results of the test cases linked to these requirements.

Execute test cases and keep track of the execution - HP ALM can track both Manual and Automated tests (with the help of HP UFT). Test cases can be easily organized and assigned to testers, then the actual test execution can be tracked in HP ALM where testers will pass or fail individual and detailed steps of the test cases in HP ALM. From here you can generate real time reports on test execution, on testers, or on tests executed by day etc.

Pros: UI, Reports, and overall app experience

Cons: Report generation needs some level of coding and support.
Price isn't it's strong point

Overall: The overall UI experience is a good one. It's quite easy to track applications and it has a lot of options with great "customer-oriented" reports.

What needs to be improved:
1. The Windows desktop client
2. Support
3. Support

I give you guys an overall 4/5 Thumbs Up!
