Can anyone give me some pros and cons about using IBM Rational Test Manager please?
Pros and Cons of Automated Testing:-

It does have features that make test case entry easier such as clipboard assist feature, and good reporting
It does appear to have a slow upgrade cycle and looks characteristic to end of lifecycle product where you're only seeing maintenance releases. (this seems to be the case with many of the Rational products)
It's one of those sad realities that testing software market is only growing at 1.6% while business analytics software market is growing at 30%. Test Management and QA Software tends to die at large multidivision companies. You see this at Microfocus/Silk, and HP/Mecury products. Although HP has invested into UFT/LeanFT recently, but relative to their size, very little.
