Micro Focus ALM Stability

Jordan Gottlieb
Principal consultant qa architect at a tech vendor with 201-500 employees
ALM has gotten more stable over the years. It's a stable app. Like any other large, complex application, you run into things every now and again. We have a system to report things and get them taken care of. View full review »

My experience with the solution is that it has been fairly stable. What lies underneath is what creates the instability at the end of the day, the architecture that you are providing the solution on top of. I think once you figure out a viable, scalable approach to it, then the software itself, at least in my experience, has been very stable in running a test management operation. View full review »

Yes and no. Once in a while we'll have some bugs and they will fix them, but other than that it's pretty stable. We have assessed ALM right now to be pretty stable. I don't see too many things that are missing in ALM right now. View full review »

HPE ALM is relatively stable, especially with more recent versions (12.5X). However, it is important to consider utilization frequency of HPE ALM at any given time and ensure that hosted application/database servers are configured to handle resource-intensive transactions to minimize performance/availability/data integrity issues. Micro Focus has published certified/supported configurations for running HPE ALM servers and client computing devices. View full review »

Quality Assurance Software Management at a healthcare company with 10,001+ employees
For us, so far, it's been pretty stable. Because we have such a ginormous amount of historical data, we've had a little bit of an issue with performance. We were working on copying and creating a new database for that because we have products that we use, FDA regulated products, and we can't get rid of those testing results. So we have to keep them for the life of the product. So of all of the things that we've experienced, or had issues with, it would be the amount of data we're able to store, because we have to keep everything. View full review »

For ALM, we didn't have any specific downtime crashes, but we have had some issues with the database connection. The internal database where we put in the ALM data might crash or the database connection is lost. That's where we noticed some issues. View full review »
