What do you think of Micro Focus ALM?

What is most valuable?: In ALM, the most valuable features are the overview, the primary requirements, test cases, defects, and traceability. Manual applications handle the regulations, so we must have the tracking capabilities. Even some of the core systems are not allowed to go down. It's very important that we know what we have tested and what is working and what is not working. That we can find out from ALM. • What do I think about the stability of the solution?: Stability is no problem. • How was the initial setup?: The first time we installed it was a long, long time ago. We bought small, five license versions of Test Director from Mercury in 2007 and it has continuously grown since then. Today we have 600 users and 130 active projects. The environment gets bigger...

What is most valuable?

I really value the links from stories/defects to code via the tasks and change sets.
