Micro Focus ALM Octane Review

User-friendly, good testing features, and helpful technical support


What is our primary use case?

We use ALM Octane for lifecycle management and for testing.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the test lab. For example, we use it for both mobile testing and browser testing.

The interface is user-friendly. 

What needs improvement?

I would like to see the mobile testing improved so that we can simply select a mobile device, then specify what parameters we want, and the testing will be run based on that. This feature would be a very good addition.

I have been using ALM Octane for about eight and a half years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not had any challenges in terms of stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable product. We have more than 50 users in our company. Some of them are Q&A while others use a different license for development. We will very likely increase our usage in the future.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is really good. They have a support portal, which is helpful.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was not complex. It was very good for us.

What about the implementation team?

We have two people who are responsible for maintenance.

What other advice do I have?

The look and feel of this product have improved over previous versions.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
