We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice
"For what it does, it's very reasonably priced. I like the licensing model as well, because it's very flexible. You can scale licenses up and down for short periods of time.""In terms of pricing, it's comparable to what we had previously. It's not priced at the higher end of the scale by any means. It's priced nicely, in the middle of the market. For what you're getting, it's a very good tool.""Going forward, I think we will want to explore adding more licenses.""The solution has reduced our testing costs.""Microsoft is a big challenge for Micro Focus when it comes to pricing because they are much cheaper. But it definitely depends on the complexity of the environment. If it has multiple technologies, at that point, looking at other options and Microsoft would be a feasible approach.""The comparison is always with Jira, so the pricing of Octane is a bit on the higher side. But if you look at what you have to add to Jira, on the plug-in side, to have the same abilities you have with Octane, you're more or less even, or even ahead with Octane."

Overview

In support of the bimodal nature of many customers today, Micro Focus has expanded the ALM experience by introducing ALM Octane, as a separate platform that is tuned and designed for high-velocity, Lean and Agile teams. ALM Octane is an included part of the ALM product, and integrates with both Micro Focus Agile Manager and the traditional Micro Focus ALM.NET platform to allow teams to easily share assets and report across projects.

A complete platform for application quality management Qualify, the AQM solution, comes with fully configurable data stores, work flows, electronic signature, security, dashboards, and reporting.

Every member of the quality process from management, through development and QA to end users can share in the quality process, allowing real-time decision making and driving predictability. Your team can focus on delivery rather than infrastructure and tools.

Desktop, Tablet & Phone

Qualify is available as a desktop application and as a web application optimized for desktop browsers and tablets. Note that some advanced capabilities are only available in the desktop version.

Multiple Methodologies

Qualify is shipped with several of predefined applications models which can be used immediately or tuned to your needs. In addition, you can create your own applications that exactly reflect your processes and storage requirements. You can map agile, waterfall or hybrid methodologies which can be used concurrently to reflect the needs of legacy and new developments.

Information Portal

In addition to the data stored within Qualify it can also display and link to data held within point solutions such as Microsoft TFS and JIRA to give a single integrated view of corporate data. That consolidated information can then be analysed, graphed and reported.

Communication Backbone

Qualify allows you to create and manage your quality plans and as importantly acts as the communication backbone letting every team member share in the progress and status. In addition to the on-line access, automatic and manual alerts can be generated which are distributed via email.

Workflows

It is essential that key steps in your quality processes are controlled and can only be passed by the appropriate users. Qualify provides all this and more, enabling rules to be set as to the critical data that must be stored at each step in the process combined with a complete audit trail.

Resource Management

Planning your medium and short-term resourcing needs can be complex but Qualify provides a powerful view of your work in progress, (optionally including time-sheet data), allocated tasks and forward projects – highlighting areas of potential contention and endangered dead-lines so that you can balance and re-assign your resources as needed.

Totally Configurable

Qualify comes with a number of pre-defined applications models which can be used immediately or tuned to your needs. In addition you can create your own applications that exactly reflect your processes and storage requirements. Map agile, waterfall or hybrid methodologies which can be used concurrently to reflect the needs of legacy and new developments.

Full Security

A role based security model is a fundamental part of Qualify with a full range of accumulated permissions. Integration with LDAP is fully supported so existing user data can be simply extended.

Easy Data Import

For customers moving to Qualify from spreadsheets and documents or legacy test management products such as QC/ALM, we provide a powerful data import capability that minimises the data conversion process.
