Micro Focus ALM Octane is currently used by the firm, to which I am under contract, for the Quality Assurance team. In that role, it is used by developers both on- and off-shore and Quality Assurance analysts for project management and rapid turn-around for their regular releases of in-house software used in kidney dialysis clinics around the world. They use Agile with scrum masters in the development phase and with test cases for QA analysts.
  • It integrates very well with Micro Focus ALM.
  • It integrates with Elastic Search -- a bit difficult to achieve, but it does it.
  • The integration to Synchronizer is very difficult to implement.
  • The integration to Jira was very hard to get working.
If someone is already using ALM Octane, then it is worth the pain to go through the upgrade process to get the current versions. If you need it to tie into Jira, it can do that. Just be prepared for a rough road. If you have some other product that you use for DevOps, PM, and QA, you will probably be better off sticking with what you have. DaVita also uses TFS, but not in a full implementation (i.e. not with a build server for code deployment), so for them, ALM makes a lot of sense. If you are using TFS with a build server, there are other methodologies that won't end up making you want to pull your hair out trying to make it integrate with what you are using.
The consultant who came to our premises to assist with the upgrade of ALM and then later of ALM Octane with ElasticSearch and Synchronizer to Jira was outstanding. He was professional, very knowledgeable, and when additional support directly from Microfocus was needed he had no trouble contacting them and getting the necessary support. Since the implementation and upgrades, we have had ZERO issues getting someone at Micro Focus to engage us and resolve issues whenever they pop up. They are knowledgeable, personable and extremely helpful.

It's an excellent tool for tracking the life cycle of an application. We can integrate it with DevOps tools as well to do continuous testing to ensure the quality of builds. It has a very easy to use and friendly interface.
  • Bug-logging and keeping track of the bug status.
  • Integration with DevOps to do continuous testing.
  • Keeping coordination between development and testing teams.
  • Hoping for them to add some widgets that'll make it a bit easier to use.
  • Enhancement in the REST API is required.
For big applications and projects where different teams work in a different location, it is very helpful for them to keep all the processes in one place and makes it easy to keep track of all team member's processes.
Customer support is very good takes minimal time to resolve the issue and always takes feedback seriously to improve the application.
