We purchased it via a supplier. Octane is being supplied by EOH Europe for us. I have worked with them in the past. They were happy to put us in touch with Micro Focus. We already have a couple of other tools through EOH, so we already had an existing relationship with them. Working with EOH Europe was fantastic. My contact at EOH was very helpful. He has always been there to help with the multiple questions that I ask all the time about various different things, not necessarily related to Octane, but about anything that they supply us. My biggest challenge as the integrator has been about changing culture. The tool does what it does. That is all. It has received a very positive reception by the majority of the people that use it. Changing the culture means improving the way that we do things, our processes, and the way that we do this is by having communities. We have a community to address concerns, misunderstandings, and conversation points that people bring, then we try and improve the practices that we do by trying to get everyone aligned to the same practices.

Programme Test Manager at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We relied on the help we get from Micro Focus. There are some good online video tutorials from Micro Focus. We made use of those. We made use of Help topics on the product. Other than that, for any issues, we would raise a ticket with Micro Focus. We didn't actually take on formal consultancy. View full review »
Senior Expert IT Test Service Management at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
For the deployment, for installation and configuration, we did everything by ourselves. But we are working with a third-party, a consultant, for the customization. Compared with ALM.NET, ALM Octane doesn't have a full scripting capability, so everything is really defined as business rules. This is quite a change for us. Therefore, we need a partner to provide us with some guidance and tips. The consulting firm we're working with is AG. Our experience with them has been really good. I have no complaints.
