How has it helped my organization?

It has improved our organization as a result of several factors: All test assets are in one central location; Easier to track progress of QA activities; Easier reporting; Easier to assess quality

The project tracking is a bit complex. It takes some time to maneuver around it. It would also help if you could export some of the reports generated from it e.g. the Master Plan.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

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

This solution is open and very easy to integrate. The interface is good too.

Central test locations are a benefit. The ability to integrate this solution with other applications is helpful. If there is automation, it comes with improved quality and speed.

There needs to be improvement in the requirement samples. At the moment, they are very basic. They could also improve the usability.

What other advice do I have?

If someone is researching solutions, they should know that this solution is stable, centralized, and scalable. If they need integration, then this is the tool to use.

What do you think of Micro Focus ALM Quality Center?

What is our primary use case?

We use it for manual and automatic testing along with defect and requirements management. We can check everything, know who is the sponsor for it, and make a test plan. Everything is very visible. 

What needs improvement?

ALM uses a waterfall approach. We have some hybrid approaches in the company and need a more agile approach. We have also installed ALM Octane and are trying to see if it fills the approach that we are looking for our company.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is very stable. We have not had any problems. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have a good impression of the scalability. I have been very satisfied.

What do you think of Micro Focus ALM Quality Center?

What is our primary use case?

I use 80 to 90 percent of the product's features. 

What is most valuable?

It has a good response time. The AI and functionality interface are useful.  The task management reporting has a lot of out-of-the box uses.

What needs improvement?

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.  Micro Focus ALM needs to bring the features of this ALM into the newer version of Octane. 

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

ALM can scale and is very impressive. It can support thousands of users with a very low amount of resources. It can easily manage very big…

The Project Templates and Enhanced Reporting features are the most useful. We have created domains as per the business units, and per business units, there is one template. It becomes easy to manage the template at business unit level. By standardizing our template, we publish reports at the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Micro Focus Quality Center helps in end-to-end traceability from releases to requirements to test cases and with defects. The enhanced dashboards capabilities are useful for senior management to view the progress of releases under the portfolio in one go and also drill down to the graphs.

What needs improvement?

* Easy integration with open source tools. * It has several limitations in adapting its agility easily.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I feel that the licenses are expensive.

What is most valuable?

I like the customizable report functionality. I was able to set up reports that allowed me to accurately give a real-time status all of all testing projects that were in process.

How has it helped my organization?

Prior to using Quality Center, my organization used spreadsheets and emails to track testing efforts. Therefore, QC helped my team become more efficient by tracking all testing activities with the tool.

What needs improvement?

* I would love to see QC update and use metric dashboards at the individual and project level. * The UI also needs some updating with a fresh new look and feel.

What is most valuable?

* The number of connectors and their ease of configuration * The self-service portal for users * The management of authorization flows

How has it helped my organization?

* It improved productivity and increased levels of internal data security. * Knowing who is accessing, where to access, at what time, and monitoring all these activities, provides value to the company. * Levels of compliance increased dramatically to meet any standard.

What needs improvement?

* They should focus on giving greater value to the IoT and social networks. * Increase the capacity to generate reports, having the tools to do a debug of all that is happening internally. * An area of improvement is to provide tools for the analysis of the logs generated by the solution.
