Alternatives to TestDirector
What other Test Management tools have people used apart from TestDirector, and how do they compare?
Re: Alternatives to TestDirector
Thats the problem with Mercury users - everyone says how great it is but the majority of users have never used any other tools.
Test Director is adequate. However, it tries to do so much that it truly does nothing very well.
The Rational and Compuware test management tools are far superior in both function and capability in just about every way. I'm not going to type a thousand word description of why - the list is too extensive - but you should definately consider conducting a pilot of each tool before settling on a vendor. One of the solutions I offer is performing side-by-side comparisons of vendor supplied tools directly at a client site for several weeks. During this time we are able to assure the customer [through practical examples] of the pros and cons of each application. Only then do the companies have the information they need in order to reach an informed decision - and yes, sometimes it's Test Director. However, in the vast majority of cases Rational and Compuware win.
