Micro Focus ALM Valuable Features

Jordan Gottlieb

Test management and reporting. Those are the two most important things. I tell my customers that the two main reasons they have ALM: * Quality management, project management from a QA perspective - testing, defect management, how testing relates back to requirements. * And reporting to make good business decisions in the future.

The most valuable user feature that we use right now is the camera. It allows us to take the test evidence, and it makes it easier for the user, especially the business user, to capture evidence as they test. View full review »

* Templates: Allows us to standardize fields, workflows throughout hundreds of HPE ALM projects. * Customizable Events drive workflow: Saves a few seconds of time when we set default values, customizable dependent lists. When we translate this to hundreds of projects and hundreds of concurrent users, the productivity gains are immeasurable. * Traceability: Traceability from Requirement -> Test Plan -> Test Lab -> Test Runs -> Defects. * Rich sets of permission settings for different roles. * Business Views: It is easier to pull reports for novice users. * OTA, REST API: Utility for adding users and massaging data.

ALM: You cannot just say one feature is most important. You get the most value using all modules from Management to Defects. When you use the tool end-to- end, you can pull efficient project reports (especially scorecards) from the Dashboard. So everything is integrated and only then you can evaluate the tool fairly. ALM is very flexible and each module can be used independently, but when you do that you are only using the tool as storage, not as a test management tool. UFT: It became much more stable tool in terms of object recognition over the years. It is easy to use as long as the user has basic software development knowledge and understands that the software automation process is not just a record/playback. View full review »

All the modules that we have in ALM, one of them is the test module. No better tool in the market than ALM because the foundation is what you see, it's been in the market for so long. I really like the test module. But it's not only limited to the test module. It is the entire application that's a management tool. So we use it for requirements as well. And the link is between your requirements and your test waves and test plans, and everything is in there. So it's a pretty good tool. View full review »

The most valuable features of ALM are in the new upgraded version of 12.53. We're able to more accurately document our test results, our actual versus our expected results, with the new screenshot functionality. That is the most useful part of the tool for me right now. Of course, we use it as our testing repository, and it's basically the way to show the work that we do as QA testers, and to have a historical view of those executions. View full review »

It's a centralized test management solution. The fact that you have a place where you can go and find all the stuff that you need to find, and keep track of all of the results long term. That is extremely valuable. In terms of functionality, it really provides all of the stuff that you need for managing test cases and test execution and keeping track of all of these different items. Now, in terms of keeping up with the trends, there's obviously a lot of challenges. View full review »

We mostly use the Defect module and then Test Plan, Test Lab. But if you ask about the most valuable feature it is the customization of any action in the ALM client. We can customize any action, window, or workflow of not only the Defect workflow but also any other entity. There is no other tool that can do it in such a way. View full review »
