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.

DevSuite is a fully integrated ALM solution that has its roots in development and QA management but has expanded to monitor and control all processes of ALM including definition, design, development, testing, and deployment. TechExcel DevSuite enables organization-wide collaboration for the management of requirements, specifications, product areas and any functional or technical design documents related to requirements, with integration points that allow to drive development and testing directly from completed requirements. It comprehensively tracks and manages all aspects of development projects, from feature stories and implementation tasks to product defects and change requests. DevSuite manages the complete quality cycle and includes knowledgewise, a central knowledge repository for managing documents, images, wiki articles, wiki books and other digital assets and attachments.
