Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Quality Center is pricey, but cheaper is not always less expensive.I feel that the licenses are expensive. ​It has several limitations in adapting its agility easily.Sure, HP UFT is not free. But consider what you get for that cost: A stable product that is easy to use; the kitchen sink of technology stack support; decades of code (which in many cases actually is free); a version that is a stepping stone to an easier Selenium design; and a support base that is more that just the kindness of strangers.HPE has one of the most rigid, inflexible, and super expensive license models.The full ALM license lets you use the requirements tab, along with test automation and the Performance Center. You can also just buy the Quality Center edition (Manual testing only), or the Performance Center version (Performance Testing only).For pricing, I recommend to buy a bundled package. Check the HPE site for more details.
