Cons
ALM uses a waterfall approach. We have some hybrid approaches in the company and need a more agile approach.Certain features are lousy. Those features can drag the whole server down. There are times that the complex SQL queries are not easy to do within this solution.They should focus on giving greater value to the IoT and social networks.There needs to be improvement in the requirement samples. At the moment, they are very basic.It needs Pure-FTPd WebUI and single sign-on.The QA needs improvement.HPE ALM’s out-of-the-box reporting can be perceived as rigid and limited, to an extent.I'd like to see the concept of teams put into it.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We have divided our licenses between Micro Focus ALM and ALM Octane. It works for us.It allows us to keep our costs low. I do not want to pay beyond a certain point for this solution.Seat and concurrent licensing models exist; the latter is recommended if a large number of different users will be utilizing the product.If you have more than five users, a concurrent licensing model should be considered.
