Micro Focus ALM Benefits

Jordan Gottlieb
Principal consultant qa architect at a tech vendor with 201-500 employees
When I was a customer, it improved my organization because I was able to manage, to enforce standards on building tests, executing tests, and manage centralized reporting. Now, I translate that over to my customers from various levels of the spectrum from complete, "We have no idea what to do to, we're doing stuff but we know we need to change," to "We've got some stuff and we just want to tweak what we're doing now."

AVP Quality Assurance at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
For a test management department, and we are highly audited, by the way, it allows us to have a single repository for all our projects where we do tests, as one go-to place for our test evidence. It has a go-to place for us to generate reporting, retain results, and be able to share it. View full review »

ALM: We currently successfully manage all testing projects due to ALM’s invaluable capabilities, which are listed below: * Built on best practices with a flexible structure, organization, and documentation for all phases of the application testing process. * Serves as a central repository for all testing assets and provides a clear foundation for the entire testing process. * Establishes seamless integration and smooth information flow from one stage of the testing process to the next. * Supports the analysis of test data and coverage statistics, to provide a clear picture of an application’s accuracy and quality at each point in its life-cycle. * Supports communication and collaboration among distributed testing teams. * Reduces time needed to create test execution summary reports. * Reduces the time needed to write and execute manual tests with HPE Sprinter tool. * Users can capture their actions automatically as steps in a formal test. UFT: We save time executing smoke and regression tests. We also use UFT to create test data. View full review »

Senior manager IT at a transportation company
If you don't use any tool to manage your application people will - like some teams we have who use Microsoft Word documents to do their requirements, and Excel sheets to plan their test cases, and write the test case and then execute and store it. In the long run, that is not going to be helpful because this is a structured way of exhibiting your development. That is what had been missed. So when we started using ALM in our organization - we'd been using QC for so long - when we finally started using ALM and we tied the requirements module to the testing module, that definitely benefited. It's because we can show a lot of data in there and now we can link to some 15 years of back data. Most of the applications are there from so long, so we still need to do the core functionality test. But we don't need to redesign and we don't need to search for Excel sheets. We know exactly who ran it, when they ran it, how the execution happened. View full review »

My organization uses HPE ALM to track the progress of testing and quality assurance efforts across projects that we are formally engaged in. The product has provided my team with metrics that provide various insights into the management and delivery of projects with respect to documented business needs. View full review »
Sales at a comms service provider with 10,001+ employees
We see a double benefit because part of our business is still very legacy-type. We are running the mainframes, and so on, the old kind of solutions, where we pretty much see that, at least for the next year to two to maybe even three years, we will continue using the ALM.NET, as such, maybe even for the functional testing and the UFT, as such. But another team is quickly adopting the agile methodology and there we have hardly seen any validity at all on the Octane for over a year now. We started to implement it the first real project in NND Center, and see good results from that. View full review »

Because we can trend repeatable results, we can look at trends of things that are continuously working well, and things that continuously get broken within the software development process. So it helps us improve our testing quality. View full review »
Parag Gulwani
Staff QA Engineer at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
We have multiple teams across the globe where we have multiple projects set up in ALM. One project is used by our team in Israel and our other project is used by a team in Atlanta. We have a centralized control or multiple projects going across the globe. So that's a good benefit for us. View full review »
Process Architect at a aerospace/defense firm with 10,001+ employees
Being able to have one place to review defects, testing progress, and defects was very useful. Merging 40 different streams, just for defects, into one solution that had good search and reporting capabilities saved a significant amount of time in coordination, defect management, and by consequence, there was better control of the quality of delivered software.

QA Manager at a individual & family service
We used to have 10 different Excel spreadsheets for one project. Then, we switched everything: paper, Excel, etc. to be done in ALM. There is no outside noise and everything is done under one umbrella. View full review »

Lacy Mc Clain
QA Analyst at a legal firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
The organization I am currently with does not use ALM. I recently moved. At AMC, we began using it during my tenure. When I got there, it was shelfware and they were using spreadsheets. ALM improved our ability to share reports which were understandable to all levels of business. Also having all the bugs for all the projects in one place instead of in a spreadsheet allowed more visibility of issues to all teams. Having test cases in ALM also helped us with spending less time doing rework. Being able to reuse the tests instead of creating new tests saved time. View full review »

Sr. Performance Engineer, ITQCoE at JetBlue Airways Corporation
When we implemented this solution, we chose to virtualize, so we didn't implement any physical hardware. We're able to scale very quickly for very large projects when we need to run 5,000 user simulations. Afterwards, we can also scale down quickly. This gives us a lot of flexibility in our project executions. View full review »

Ganesh Muralidharan Pillai
Assistant Director Quality Assurance at a tech vendor with 10,001+ employees
In my previous organization, various tools like Excel and other open source test management tools were used. This was causing issues in sharing Test Management data. Once HPE ALM was brought in as a single solution, and data from all other tools were migrated to it, there was a single tool for all needs. View full review »
