Supercharge HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) in your environment

Why should you upgrade to the new version of HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)? In our webinar on  February 4 our quality assurance and testing evangelist, Michael Cooper, will give you some answers about why you can’t wait to upgrade. Michael will be joined by Susan Merriman – from HP Software’s global education team – to speak about how you can get the most value from HP ALM. In this blog post, Susan gives us a peek into the areas she’ll be covering with references to the experience of one customer, Open Grid.


The benefits of HP ALM

  • Know where you are with a complete view across every project (with status, KPIs and metrics)

3 ways to enable your people


There are three simple ways to help your people get up to speed with HP ALM:


  1. Familiarise yourself with the new HP ALM features. The best way to do that is by attending our webinars and accessing HP-built enablement content
  2. Help your configuration team set up HP ALM by attending our instructor-led training courses
  3. Help your users learn by providing them customized easy to access learning content.


While number three may appear to be a time consuming task it doesn’t have to be that way. Take a look here at how one company, Open Grid, creates interactive simulations for the key features of HP ALM tailored to users’ roles. For instance, a developer who wants to create a test plan has easy access – in the application – to simulations that show step-by-step instructions. Open Grid’s enablement program:


  • Ensures that users get the most from HP ALM
  • Improves usage of HP ALM in software quality assurance
  • Cuts calls to their help desk
  • Saves money through efficiencies
