Evaluating Test Management Tools – Top 8 Parameters to Consider

Listen on the go!

Test Management encompasses anything and everything that we do as testers. Our day-to-day activities include:

  • Creating and maintaining release/project cycle/component information
  • Creating and maintaining the test artifacts (requirements, test cases, etc) specific to each release/cycle.
  • Establishing traceability and coverage between the test assets
  • Test execution support – Test suite creation, test execution status capture, etc.
  • Metric collection/Report-graph generation for analysis
  • Bug tracking/defect management
What are the primary factors while choosing test management tools?

Based on our experience on multiple tools, we have identified a few prominent test management tools which provide rich features and ensure substantial cost benefit.


Ease of Use & Configurability

Bug Tracking

Automation & Integration (API)

Export & Import Test Cases

Reporting, Statistics & Graphs



With the presence of open source tools, the space of test management tool has become very dynamic & flexible in terms of customization based on the project requirements. Instead of opting for proprietary tools, we can use much better, flexible & inexpensive options available in the form of open source tools based on individual project requirements.
