Therefore, the choice between Jira and ALM Octane is not an either-or question, rather the two tools should be seen as complementary solutions. Together, they provide added value for software development projects.
Combining effectiveness and efficiency – increasing productivity
The combination of both tools generates synergies and significantly increases the productivity of software development.
Scale and grow
As teams grow, organizations often hit limits with Jira when it comes to the tool’s scalability. Capturing and representing software projects from teams at scale is more complex with Jira. The Octane tool from Micro Focus has the ability to scale and map large structures.
ALM Octane in a few words
Octane allows to display a step view of the projects. It is possible to switch from a global view to further levels of detail. The tool is characterized by the fact that it can be used by many different people and is quick to learn. It enables bidirectional collaboration, quick status check of projects, and customization of the user interface depending on the role and function. This means that development, quality and product management, as well as many other roles can be involved.
Transparency at the highest level
The transparency that is created enables time to be saved throughout the software development process. In addition, errors are identified more quickly and at an early stage in this way, as tests can already be triggered during development. In summary, this contributes to long-term cost reduction and quality improvement.
Enable data-driven decisions
Due to the number of different key figures that are determined and merged in Octane, data analysis is optimized. Due to the transparency and the possibility of a quick review, changes can be made and adapted at an early stage. Decisions are thus made on the basis of meaningful data and contribute to a fast decision-making process.
