Topic: data use?
Has anyone found a way to utilize the data from ALM? I'd like to buy the software, but I can't justify the cost if I can't actually do anything with the data... like export it, or print it, or report on it to clients...
ALM's a great concept, but Caphyon hasn't anticipated that anyone would actually want to *do* anything with its results.
(How did this alpha software get awards??)
ALM shows promise, but 3 months after its release, and still no export or reporting in site. (which is weird, since AWR's reporting module would bolt in just ducky... export HTML or Excel reports, or XML data... AWR's awesome in that regard, why would ALM be an absolute dead in the water product in that aspect?)
How can we be expected to pay after the trial's run out... are the developers just waiting until we've financed their development sufficiently to finish the product? If so, I have grave suspicions that it will be completed at all.
Come on, Caphyon, you have potential customers here... release version 1.2 with export and reporting (before 2006, who knows what month), and we'll buy it.
Or, alternately, extend our licenses until such time as you *do* release a final non-alpha product.
(MSN doesn't even get tracked properly, so yes, it's alpha software.)
