I'm currently working with Mercury and doing a proof of concept on Quality Center. Can anyone give me some feedback on how they like it? It looks like a great tool but I'm wondering if you have run into any limitations.
Also, do you use Business Components?
Do you feel there is a great return on investment?
We have been using TD since Rel. 5.0 and really like its capabilities. We do not use the defect tracker nor the Business Components, but I run the local Mercury User Group and several of our member companies do, with great success. They have their BA's running all their tests, but QA writes the components as it takes some really good skills to configure the components for maximum efficiency.
Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica">TD 8.0 is using ASP and QC 8.0 is using J2EE. QC is a port/re-write of TD into J2EE to provide robustness and scalability, and real replication capabilities. TD can use an MS-Access dB and QC (8.0) does not support it. In QC 8.2 they have implemented support for the MSDE dB engine (enough people bitched about it).
QC 8.0 has the BPT and Dashboard components as part of the default package (turned on by licensing), TD 8.0 does not.
Those are the basic highlevel differences, ones that do impact your decision. Otherwise the other base functionality is the same between them, might be some other slight differences but I forget what they are.
