HP ALM – ALM Octane migration using OpsHub Integration Manager

How to migrate from HP ALM (Application Lifecycle Management) to ALM Octane

With evolving technological landscape in the application delivery world, organizations have started moving towards tools that enable agility, rapid delivery, cloud hosting, and phenomenal customer experience. Customers planning to move from HP ALM to ALM Octane also have similar reasons.

ALM Octane provides next-generation features for agile enterprises. The inherent capability in ALM Octane to scale easily helps organizations create a robust and scalable Agile and DevOps ecosystem. The integrated and open management framework for all core lifecycle artefacts further enables enterprises to deliver superior products, faster.

HP ALM to ALM Octane Migration

HP has built ALM Octane on an entirely new platform with different database schemas and using different methodologies and this fundamental difference between these two systems has brought in challenges for users planning to move from HP ALM to ALM Octane. The biggest challenge that a user faces while moving from HP ALM to ALM Octane is to maintain complete audit traceability of data. However, with compliance regulations in most industries becoming stringent, losing historical data is no more affordable. Therefore, solutions that migrate only current data from HP ALM to ALM Octane no more suffice the needs of most organizations. Other requirements such as: need for a hard cutover, migration of huge volume of data & user profiles, or keeping both systems in synchronization for as long as needed make it difficult for organizations to choose a solution that doesn’t have comprehensive synchronization abilities.
