Agile Manager

One scenario I believe HP Agile Manager is well suited is for a team of 5 or more developers who are releasing new features or addressing defects. Another scenario where it is beneficial is for teams of QA Automation engineers, where again, the objectives are clear. A scenario where I believe it would be less appropriate is for operations-type teams where objectives are not always clear cut, and the roles must be more reactive.

HPE ALM is the market leading QA tool for a reason. It provides a single view of the QA process and allows anyone to see what they need to see, from auditors who only need to view information to the end QA engineers who actually do the work. The USP is the total coverage of Test Cycle which other tools. This is suited in mid to big projects/programs for testing.

Pros

  • Agile manager is particularly good for planning out sprints in an Agile methodology
  • The Task Board in AGM gives clear swim-lanes to indicate progress/status, or to gauge that of another team member.
  • The Dash Board gives visibility to team members capacity and the overall team burn down.

  • The whole end to end QA lifecycle can be covered and mapped, allowing a single view source of the quality of the application under test.
  • There are multiple add-ins that can be used to enhance the reach of the application.
  • The workflow is easy to customise in order to hide fields or restrict permissions within modules.
  • Native reports and graphs allow simple exporting and time saving when reporting to the project team.

Cons

  • Removing stories from a Sprint results in them being difficult to find later.
  • Editing story details is slightly cumbersome.
  • It's somewhat unclear how capacity fills up for stories split from prior sprints.

  • The tool isn't cheap, but then again neither is something like a Ferrari or other high quality item.
  • The current guise of ALM does not lend itself to Agile, although this is being rectified with the HPE Octane delivery.
  • The underlying code is old and can sometimes slow down IE, but again Octane should fix it.

If your needs are to simply track individual defects without flash, this may be the tool for you. If you want a tool which can easily and seamlessly integrate into your corporate intranet, I would look elsewhere.

Alternatives Considered

HP Agile Manager is beefy enough to work for bigger teams. In this way it matches closely to what is offered with Rally. One area it comes up short when compared to Rally is the apparent lack of a test management capability, where requirements can be entered then mapped to test cases. Agile Manager has some of the agile feel offered by Trello and Waffle but the added functionality that makes it more valuable for bigger teams.

We have had ALM back when it was called QC (Quality Center) and this was before my time, so I cannot say why it was chosen over other applications. I do know that it has been our defacto standard for many years now and all users of the program are very happy with it.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed us to plan our Sprint work more effectively
  • It has made it more clear how to accurately estimate certain problems
  • It has given clarity over time as to the skill and work speed of team members

  • Helps track defects to ensure quality of the defect (or enhancement) is met.
  • Helps to make sure that the proper workflow is followed and if not, allows management to take a proactive approach to determining why the process was not followed.
