Quality Center Pricing and License Cost

Paul Grossman

Sure, HP UFT is not free. But consider what you get for that cost: A stable product that is easy to use; the kitchen sink of technology stack support; decades of code (which in many cases actually is free); a version that is a stepping stone to an easier Selenium design; and a support base that is more that just the kindness of strangers. Want to take UFT to another level for free? Add AutoItScript calls. View full review »

For licensing, find out the number of users who will be using it concurrently, and use that number as a starting point for the number of licenses to purchase. Quality Center is pricey, but cheaper is not always less expensive. View full review »

HPE has always been flexible in terms of pricing and licensing, but we are a bit concerned with the fact that it is now in the hands of Micro Focus and things may change. View full review »

Make sure you get the correct license for your needs. The full ALM license lets you use the requirements tab, along with test automation and the Performance Center. You can also just buy the Quality Center edition (Manual testing only), or the Performance Center version (Performance Testing only). I have no idea where they get their pricing numbers from, but they seem to always be negotiable. View full review »

HPEs licensing model is inflexible, rigid, and is not customer-centric. View full review »

For pricing, I recommend to buy a bundled package. Check the HPE site for more details. View full review »

HPE is constantly updating its licensing to be competitive, but as a whole the pricing for ALM is very high for the local market and, as such, we see a larger adoption overseas. View full review »

This is an excellent tool for larger companies. It has been my experience that it is not cost-effective in medium or small-scaled companies. View full review »

It is very pricey. To be fair, it is geared for enterprise use. Unless the company and the decision maker (who would say “yes” to paying for it) is convinced on benefits of the product, it is not a go. Medium businesses would not buy into it. View full review »

I would not recommend this product If you have a small organization, which would not use this tool very often. The pricing is very expensive, but it covers a full solution, which means, you will use a lot of functionalities and gain in time and efficiency. View full review »
