Overall Satisfaction with HP Application Lifecycle Management

HP Application Lifecycle Management was previously used by my organization to manage project defects. With the completion of a recent large-scale project, all development teams have moved into an Agile model which no longer fits well with HP Application Lifecycle Management.
  • Allow organization and separation of various projects into specific work areas with specific users
  • Provides sufficient reporting on the state of project defects
  • Allows linking to other defects within ALM
  • Provided for easy inclusion of attachments to a defect
  • The user interface is very basic an unappealing
  • The is limited or no ability for an end-user to create a custom view of a defect to display only the desired information
  • The login cannot be easily linked to Active Directory requiring the creation and maintenance of application-specific user accounts
  • HP Application Lifecycle Management had the positive impact of allowing the proper tracking of defects and their resolution
We have selected ServiceNow (SNOW) in lieu of HP Application Lifecycle Management. SNOW allows complete integration into our internal corporate web-based systems where ALM does not. Because of this complete integration, we are able to provide users with a consistent user experience matching those of all our other solutions. ALM was not able to provide this interface.
I have not experienced ANY integration with HP Application Lifecycle Management.
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.
I found the entire application to be unappealing both aesthetically and functionally. It gave the feeling of an older, text-based or mainframe-based application and not a modern, graphical, interactive application. If one needs simply to track problem tickets without any real flash, ALM might be well suited to your need. I would not personally recommend it.
