Overall Satisfaction with HP Application Lifecycle Management

HP ALM is a project management tool with strongest test management. We are using ALM as our bug lifecycle management tool. The major benefit of this tool is its ability to integrate with HP's other testing tools, which makes it a perfect automated testing framework.
  • Defect/Bug management.
  • Traceability with requirements, test cases and defects
  • Defect linking
  • It's very slow sometimes. There is improvement required in this context.
  • Excel reports are not easy to create. Earlier versions were better at this.
  • Only compatible with IE
  • 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.
We require a project management tool for waterfall projects with very heavy testing cycles (4-5 regression cycles), definitely no other tool in the market provides the level of support for test management that HP ALM provides.
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.
