AppDynamics

We had slowness, but didn't know where. We quickly would find out if it was the network, database, app server, webserver, or otherwise. They don't like me saying this, but it's a great "finger-pointer".

HP Application Lifecycle Managment

HP ALM is well suited for waterfall projects specifically if the teams are novice. It provides excellent support for project planning, tracking & test management. Top leadership can efficiently track, measure and report on project milestones & key performance indicators. Development teams have access to a wide variety of tools to automate their development, testing, bug tracking, and reporting tasks in one place. Its extensive documentation and tutorials help new users to learn this tool pretty fast. Though for agile teams HP ALM Octane can be explored but its not value for money & did not handle distributed teams well.

Pros

  • Integration with multiple frameworks (Java, NodeJS, .NET, etc). Good database monitoring tool as well as end-user and synthetic user monitoring tool.
  • Works great for on-premise and is always maturing and keeping up with industry trends.
  • It's been in Garter's Leader Quad for years now.
  • Very intuitive web UI and IT, Mgmt, QA, Devs, and Ops could easily use it.

  • The traceability between tests and defects allows testers to create defects directly from the test case, including the detailed steps to recreate the defect for the developers. Upon fixing the issue and deploying, testers can rerun the appropriate tests.
  • Being able to test across multiple environments ensures that visibility into issues, developing regression scripts and other repeatable actions are available for different teams, reducing duplication of effort.
  • Integration with testing tools such as Selenium, Unified Functional Test, etc. allows for development of automated regression suites to assist in maintaining clean code as it moves through the development lifecycle, especially on mature applications.

Cons

  • The initial set up for some parts of the features could be better documented.
Adam Rooney profile photo
  • While very useful, HP ALM is an expensive tool, price for licensing is one of the main reasons clients tend to refrain from user HP ALM
  • While HP ALM has a native connectivity with HP UFT for test automation, integrating other tools with HP ALM though possible is not as straight forward as could be, HP ALM could make connections to it easier for third party applications.
  • Some browsers are better prepared to work with HP ALM, if some of the plugins that are loaded at the first tme login fail to load, the 'recipe' to bypass this error and make it load can be difficult and sometimes some security settings in the network need to be set for ALM to work

Alternatives Considered

I didnt like any of the functionality or the layout this application provided. I saw the growth with AppDynamics and the possible potential mainly because we have visibility to the actual application code. This is one of the best options by far to ensure the vendor fixes bugs in the code.

HP ALM has always been the best tool in the industry for QA management. Thoroughly trusted and used by the top-notch organization through the industry.The USP is the total coverage of Test Cycle which other tools lack.

  • Enables and compels users to use this tool for all kind of QA activities, thus providing a global mechanism for Testing.
  • Complete coverage of Test Cycle.
  • Excellent Test execution and Defect tracking coverage.
  • No such negative impact. Only thing is, there has not been too much enhancement. It is more or less having the same old features.Not much innovation found over the years.
