A new Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) software offering, called HPE ALM Octane, has been introduced by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE); designed to help clients accelerate their DevOps success.
The key offerings
According to HPE, HPE ALM Octane is guided by analytics and an open architecture in order to drive speed, quality and scale. The suite provides the following key offerings:
- The ability to integrate with different developer tools and application programming interfaces
- The software utilises the continuous integration process to capture, analyse, provide and present data for defect management and tracking
- Proactively tracks the relationships between pipeline activity, application architecture and components, and state of quality
- In turn, it tracks the change between application components, backlog, builds, tests and defects
Why is this new offering important?
