So, what is the verdict?

 

While both tools have their Pros and Cons these are the main things you should consider

 

PractiTest is a SaaS based end-to-end test management solution, that covers all aspects of the application lifecycle managment from requirements to testing to reporting and sharing resutls. This tool was created with testing as its focus.It organized tests in hirarchical filters that elimimate the need to duplicate tests with reusability capabilities thus reduces testing time and increase efficiency.

 

Zephyr for Jira is a Jira add-on, where all testing is done inside Jira. The tool has friendly pricing, with a nice set of features such as BDD testing and integration with automation and DevOps tools using REST APIs, but the work is limited inside Jira, doesn't have the ability to manage requirements or user stories and flexibility and the focus of testing as a quality enabler. Working inside Jira sounds promising at first, but take into consideration that as your company grows, so will testing load. Working with a tool that is not deisgned for testing can limit your ability to testing visibility you need in order to make the right business decisions.
