by Micro Focus Employee in Application Delivery Management

 Choosing a new solution for software quality can be unnerving. It’s a necessary evil, but the payoff is worth the time and effort. To help organizations understand if Micro Focus’ solutions are right for them, we commissioned the trusted consultants at Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact (TEI) study and assess the return on investment (ROI) companies may realize with Micro Focus Continuous Quality solutions.

Decoding the TEI Study

Forrester conducted a series of interviews with four companies that have experience using Micro Focus for Continuous Quality to understand the cost, benefits, flexibility, and risk factors that affect business’ investment decisions. While these companies are anonymized, each one has deployed ALM Octane, LoadRunner Enterprise, and UFT One to users across their development and QA teams. Forrester then aggregated the interviewees’ experiences and combined the results into a single composite organization, which makes up the framework of this study.

Key Challenges

Prior to using Micro Focus Continuous Quality solutions, these companies had common challenges, including:

  • Lack of visibility over application development.
  • Poor quality production efforts with many errors.
  • Implementing an agile methodology.
  • Limited manual testing of applications.

Unfortunately, these challenges are all too familiar for many companies out there.

Snapshot of the TEI Findings

After investing in Micro Focus Continuous Quality solutions, these companies realized greater efficiencies and improved quality of software applications under development.

 Results for composite organization over three years

Quantified highlights from this study include:

  • Realizing a three-year ROI of 241%.
  • $24.9 million in benefits over three years.
  • Improving QA productivity by up to 40%.
  • $1 million in downtime cost avoided each year.
  • 35% increase in business value due to accelerated time to market.

These results couldn’t speak louder. All over the globe, companies are continually scaling development of digital applications to keep pace with competing companies and to better service customers. The pressure to develop applications has led to issues around quality, cost, and time. It’s a lot for companies to handle, so you might not be surprised to hear that interviewed organizations cited improved productivity, reduced downtime, and increased business value from faster time to market as the reasons they chose Micro Focus Continuous Quality solutions.
