Micro Focus ALM Pricing and License Cost

HPE ALM has been sold to Micro-Focus. I am not sure if Micro-Focus will be flexible. If no flexibility is provided, you can easily move out in weeks, if you have the right resources. View full review »

It appears that most companies choose HPE Quality Center Enterprise or HPE ALM. HPE ALM contains everything included with Quality Center Enterprise, and further adds features focused on cross-project customization, planning, and tracking. Seat and concurrent licensing models exist; the latter is recommended if a large number of different users will be utilizing the product. There is also the option of utilizing HPE ALM/Quality Center Enterprise as hosted on HPE’s SaaS platform. View full review »

The main concern is that there is a significant dollar investment, so do good research to make sure the tool will meet your needs. View full review »

I think HPE tools are too expensive, but dumping them for shareware tools, like JIRA, Selenium, etc., is also very dangerous and is not a silver bullet. View full review »

It is definitely overpriced. Most of the cost is for support that you rarely need if you have an onsite admin. View full review »

Just want to advise to use ALM SaaS in case you don’t want to use ALM all your life. It is cheaper and provides you with all the ALM features but for some period of time. Also, you don’t need to install it manually, the entire environment is already installed. View full review »

Pricing may be a factor prompting a look at competitor products and differentiators or open source options with limited product features. Licensing could leverage combo packs with HPE ALM such as HPE UFT, HPE LoadRunner, etc, as well as continued usage of product post-expiration of license without upgrade and technical support.

If we have huge data and more number of users managing the data, then ALM is the best option for our organization. It also applies if your team is distributed, out-sourced or in-sourced. View full review »

Original cost was $158,000. Our day-to-day cost is difficult to compute, but it’s very low. View full review »

Pricing is very big, so it's good is to negotiate with its vendors. The solution is not so important and should not cost so much. View full review »

We have divided our licenses between Micro Focus ALM and ALM Octane. It works for us. View full review »
