When to Migrate from HP ALM
The impact of HPE’s sale of its software business is sinking in after it was announced almost a year back, is now a good time to migrate from HP ALM? In the QA domain; the impact is felt by many enterprises who are HPE ALM users.
The two major concerns voiced are the uncertainty of how the toolset will support in future and speed at which it will adapt to their needs in digital transformation era. The need for a future-safe toolset that transcends from manual to automated testing and supports DevOps was never so critical.
The 3 main reasons to consider this migration are:
1) HP QC to ALM Migration
HP announced the end of support for QC, QTP, and Loadrunner. This entails migration from QC to ALM for existing users. This migration is not easy as it involves a paradigm shift in the core methodologies. The QC was more adept with manual testing while HP ALM is supposed to support Agile & DevOps.
2) Doubt on future enhancements and support
With the entire product, changing hands and still in transit; it is most likely that the future enhancements and long-term scalability are in doubt. There is no clear strategy in place yet. Secondly, the support strategy for the product is not clear and with many jobs at stake due to the transition; the overall clarity may not be forthcoming in foreseeable future.
3) Rapid digital transformation
For most enterprises; digital transformation is of utmost priority and to remain competitive; therefore, they need to achieve it at very fast pace. Considering the above two challenges; this task is almost impossible to achieve with HP QC to ALM migration.
