There are various tools available for comparison, but I prefer to use this tool as it provides many features while comparing or merging file. The graphic user interface is very simple and attractive.

Micro Focus ALM / Quality Center

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.

  • 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

Code Compare

  • It takes some time while comparing files.
  • It supports multi tabs comparison but it shows the difference after some time.
  • It should show the notification to other users in case both are working on the same file.

  • HP ALM is little late in adopting the Agile methodology but with the new HP ALM Octane products, organization can easily manage teams and projects which follows that methodology. I would like HP to make an effort to gel this two products capabilities in one product in future.
  • HP ALM shall invest some more resources in making HP ALM Synchronizer product more robust. HP ALM Synchronizer is a very good tool to synchronize data e.g. Requirements and Defects between HP ALM and other endpoints like Team Foundation Server and JIRA.
  • HP ALL is still hard to implement if you want to build a true DevOps team. This feature definitely need some improvements for "non-product" oriented organization to adapt 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.

It is a great tool, however, it got this rating because there is a lot of learning that takes a lot longer than other tools. There are no mobile versions of ALM even with just a project summary view. I believe ALM is well capable of integration with other analytics tools that can help business solutions prediction based on current and past project data. This is Data held in ALM but with no other use apart from human reading and project progress. ALM looks like a steady platform that I believe can handle more dynamic functionality. You could add an internal communication platform that is not a third party. Limit that communication tool to specific project members.

ALM/QC does not stack up too well against other lifecycle management products, in my opinion. ALM/QC does good in certain areas, such as the quick assigning of tasks to be done, but it falls short in too many areas in terms of being a realistic product to use for the different phases and lifecycle of IT processes. There is a notable lack of cohesion among certain functions of ALM/QC, almost as if separate products were purchased and then consolidated into one product.

Return on Investment

Code Compare

  • It helps to save a lot of effort hours as we can synch code with few simple steps.
  • Easily to check customers issues with the help of local and production changes.
  • Helps to deploy the service packs on a production system.

Micro Focus ALM / Quality Center

  • 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.
