How has it helped my organization?

It has basic and advanced facilities that allow you to arrange all of your test data in very well arranged, systematic manner.

What needs improvement?

Graphs can be further improved to manage more requirements at a time.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have you used this solution for seven years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We never encountered any issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I did not encounter any issues with scalability. It depends on the number of licenses. If you have them all active at the time, it still responds the same way, which is fast.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would give technical support a rating of 10/10.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We used Excel, but it was so difficult to manage the various Excel files and sheets just like maintaining a register book for your records. ALM allows you to handle them all with just one click.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward as it it required little knowledge of the server to do a simple server-side installation.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

If we have huge data and more number of users managing the data, then ALM is the best option for our organization. It also applies if your team is distributed, out-sourced or in-sourced.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options. I was aware of their earlier version which had a very good market and feedback, I didn't have to waste my time doing a PoC on any other product.

What other advice do I have?

You must look to implement the minimum system requirements, Configuration, for the server for optimum and efficient use.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We deliver training on HPE Testing tools for HPE on their behalf to HPE clients.
