Very Good at application life tracking

What do you like best?

Rich UI with good user experience.

Ease to track an application history.

Reports that can be generated are much appealing to clients.

Options for problem description is much better in terms of UI and work also.

Online platform takes less time to load the screen and this is unique among the tools that provide the same sort of needs.

History section and versioning control section are really feasible in order to getting things done easier.

defect tracking has highlights that can be used for sorting and assigning task in an easier way.

Role based access was easy to get things move on.

What do you dislike?

There was some time lag in response

Desktop Client has some issue in windows platform .

Generation of graphs needs some technical coding as well.

Support to this was limited I felt.

Community help is also lagging interms of help from support and users.

This need some more additional detail with respect to windows application client.

Documentation part needs some improvement.

Some drawbacks when it comes to testing via this application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good at tracking defects.

Good at generation customized reports.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy to track application level defects.

Extremely unpleasant tool to work with

What do you like best?

There is nothing what I really like.

It works.

Grid view of bugs is good.

Manual test plan design is quite good.

What do you dislike?

Its thick client in browser. No way how to open another window. Slow, huge.

Everything is defect. Even if its a change

No easy way how to enforce workflow.

Some workflow states are default which are not possible to change from administration.

I cant do links from defect to a lot of entities, but these entities can create link to defect.

No back - forward button.

All dialogs are modal no way how to look somewhere else with opened detail of defect or anything else - impossible to used advantage of two monitors

No way how to limit some possibilities

Requirements manager is not really working as requirements manager.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not even try, there are many more cheaper and better or similarly expensive and much better solutions. Actually there are OS solutions without license cost which will work better then this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bug tracking, manual testing and test management. Only benefit is that testcases are stored and bugs are tracked. Its also quite easy to see requirements coverage.

What Software Testing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Good one for Bug management system

What do you like best?

The best in market, simplicity and broader ways to integrate other project management tools with it. tool has a good GUI and better test data management mechanism. Notification mechanism and reporting features are also competitive.

What do you dislike?

I dont like the fact that ALM only works well with Internet explorer and because of that it inherits all the performance issues from IE. Its very slow sometimes. there is improvement required in this speed context. look wise GUI is bettter but due Internet explorer thing , it freezes frequently.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a big team and bug tracking is a bottleneck for you, please use HP ALM.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

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.

HP has a good team to provide support on proactively.

HP Alm is worth a try

What do you like best?

HP ALM is a good pack o services. Best feature that I liked in this was the ease with which it collaborates with Microsoft Visual Studio. This improves the productivity of the developer.

What do you dislike?

I disliked its bug tracking feature as its not as accurate as its competitors. Rest all the feature were well and good. Developers behind this tool have put some work that is worth appreciating.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Cheers, this is a software that one must try if they are looking forward to a good tool for software testing and Application Life cycle Management.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it as the ALM Suite and I also use it for Software Testing for my application. One thing that this tool made sure was the ease of developers. It integrates itself to other software like Visual Studio in my case to make handling easier for the developer.

HP ALM for SAP Functional testing coordination

What do you like best?

I like how HP ALM offer many tools for testing, all integrated.

You go from creating your test cycles, test campaigns, specifying your business requirements, to creating test scenarios. Optional tools like HP Sprinter can be used to record your test scenarios, and the script will be helpful for the persons in charge the testing.

I like the integration with SAP: from solution manager solution documentation to SAP ECC, there are many connectors out there that can be used to transfer data from and to HP ALM.

What do you dislike?

The tools offers so much possibilities that you can be lost at times. I couldn't find a simple user guide that would explain me all the options, or things I needed to do to execute my tests in an adequate way.

Some features still need to be polished. Some things that should just be copy and pasted can't, and require you to do the same tasks again and again. To be used perfectly, many concepts needs to be understood, which takes time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was in charge of coordinating a SAP testing team, and HP ALM offers a lot for creating a very robust test campaign.

A Comprehensive Solution

What do you like best?

HP ALM integrates well with other HP products and has all the necessary features required to test code coverage. It also manages test data, thus making it easier to test applications. Excellent bug reporting features and analytics dashboards as well.

What do you dislike?

Learning curve is a bit steep and the application is not intuitive. Missing ability to edit multiple test cases together.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Although it is expensive, it is a complete package. You get what you pay for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a quality engineer, I used HP ALM to keep track of the entire test suite and track progress. It also served as a communication tool with the development team.

ALM help streamline our testing process and organised the test cases and test scripts into manageable suites and releases.
