Micro Focus ALM Octane Primary Use Case

Process Owner E/E Test Management at a transportation company with 10,001+ employees
It's hard to say what our primary use case is. There are so many new changes and options. From the perspective of the general organization, it's the shared space/Workspace concept that is of major interest. From the architecture side, with Elastic and Oracle storage, it gives us fast filtering and it's fast at finding information. On the process side, it gives us the option to control or organize workflow by user stories and tasks, within the different teams. View full review »

I work for a section of our company where what we do is host enterprise tools that our consulting projects can use. Potentially, as we get more and more users, we can have hundreds of projects at a time. We're not a typical use case where we have one way that we're using the tool. The tool is being used on various consulting projects. Our use cases vary drastically. We have some people who have told us they just use it for testing, there are some people who just use it for defect management. People are familiar with other tools, like JIRA and ALM and even AGM. Octane is new, so some people are trying to take baby steps into adopting it. Day-to-day, how we typically use it, and how we're promoting it should be used, is for Agile project management with manual testing, including release management, sprint management; end-to-end type of use. We use it to manage our releases in sprints. Other teams within my group also use it for testing and defect management, and that's how we promote it, and train our consulting project teams to use it.

CDA Engineer at Hastings
We have a relatively splintered tool set and a number of tools which could not connect all of those things together. Therefore, the use case for ALM Octane was that we were trying to create a single version of the truth. A single source of everything to change within the IT department. I work in the programs management department. We are using the latest version of the product because we are cloud-based. We receive all the deployments as they are released. View full review »

Programme Test Manager at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
What we're doing is a cloud migration program. We're migrating about 70 applications from on-premise centers to the Amazon Cloud. That migration is primarily using Octane to store manual test cases and for a manual backlog of user storage to migrate each application. We're also using Octane to record the results of automated testing and performance testing. View full review »
Senior Expert IT Test Service Management at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
We are in the middle of a pilot, an evaluation. We have been evaluating the software for about 13 months. Our focus, at the beginning of the evaluation, was to probe a BDD approach with Gherkin to help us track the end-to-end process from requirements to test automation, without leaving quality aspects behind. That's the first use case. The second use case is that we want to optimize the traceability and integration within the Continuous Integration and Delivery process. View full review »

Test Manager at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
We're using it for test management, to write test cases and we have put it into an overall approach which is called BDD, Behavior-Driven Development. Within BDD we're using Octane to manage all tests, to plan and do test automation. We're doing test automation with IntelliJ, together with TestCafe, which is a pretty nice test-automation tool. We have Jenkins with a pipeline connected to Octane, working the whole process. The main intent is to have a quality solution. Our development is working in JIRA, which means that we have split it. We import user stories from JIRA to Octane and start working from there on our testing. View full review »

Lead Solution Architect at a consumer goods company with 10,001+ employees
Our primary use case is using it as a single application lifecycle management tool, meaning all the way from our original planning, requirements, doing backlog management, user stories, test lifecycle management, defects, in a single tool. We consolidated. In the past, we used more than one tool. Our ultimate goal is to have this as our global standard. Our primary use case was to move away from other tools and standardize on Octane.
