ALM Octane 12.x Fundamentals (ALMOCT110)

Course Description Agenda

Course Overview

This three-day course about HPE Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) Octane teaches students how to leverage this streamlined ALM solution to bring continuous quality to lean, Agile, and DevOps-focused teams. Students learn how to manage quality information throughout the development cycle, from constructing requirements, designing and executing tests, through to monitoring defects.

The course uses lecture, text, and a series of hands-on labs to teach the course material. The hands-on labs for this course use version 12.5 of the ALM Octane software
