Reporting engine, widgets, and dashboards are a huge plus, and powerful REST interface means we can interact with other tools

What is our primary use case?

We are using ALM Octane for electronic component testing and validation. We have a few departments where they are developing their software and using JIRA projects and exchanging results with Octane.

Has good visibility but the interfaces should be better for consuming information

What is our primary use case?

We are using the hybrid cloud deployment model.

Pros and Cons

    • "t is rather slow, so the speed of the process and consuming information should be improved. It doesn't have a nice way of viewing information. We would like to see better interfaces for consuming information."

    What other advice do I have?

    I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
