Top 15 Best Test Management Tools (New 2023)

Summary: This guide provides a listing of the top & best test management tools available, so you can review and select a test management tool that works best for your needs.

Choosing the best test management tool for your team and for your projects is an important (and sometimes difficult) decision. There are a couple of factors you need to consider when choosing a tool, such as:

  • Does the test management tool support all the testing methods we use?
  • Does it integrate with our existing tools, such as issue tracking and CI/automation?
  • How fast & productive is the UI for our manual testing?
  • Is the product scalable for our team size and test numbers?
  • Is the tool built & supported by a reputable vendor?

Most teams evaluate multiple tools before deciding which test management tool to adopt. Now without further ado, here's our list of the top best test management tools (new 2023 updates)!
