The codeBeamer is a great ALM tool, which difficulty lies in the first steps, a proper project setup

2018-03-23

Pros

It includes all necessary parts for complex development project; therefore you can avoid a tool break between a classic requirement management tool such as DOORS and a test management tool.

Cons

The user interface itself is easy to handle, but the working process behind the UI is not self explained. Dashboards, Reports and Trackers are loaded every time they are opened.

2018-03-22

Pros

Cons

a: unfortunately there is no german speaking customer support I can explain my problems b: dashboards, reports and trackers are loaded every time after opening - this lasts very long for elements with big data

Very good ALM tool with best features of many other tools.

2017-05-05

Pros

* adaptability * large scale of functionality (from requirements to implementation, to testing, releasemanagement and Support) * very good documentation about codebeamer * webinars from intlant * full-text search

Cons

* too many posibilities for filtering or reporting of issues with too different features (the one you use allways needs a feature of another search functionality) * too less posibilities for dashboards (maybe changes with 8.1) * project management (ok its not the focus of this tool, but it would be nice)

2017-08-01

Pros

Very flexible and powerful platform that can be adapted in a variety of ways to align to your process and practices for managing your application lifecycle.

Cons

It can be challenging to debug why a user is unable to execute a task given the intersection of 1) license constraints 2) project permissions 3) tracker permissions 4) field permissions

Complete documentation of all artefacts along the software development process, flexible workflows, full traceability, all stakeholders in the process working in the same integrated environment

Pros

very powerful, with a multitude of functionality, not only to tracker the artefacts along the software development process, but also to collect all other types of documents, manage teams, great reporting, basically any object can be described and traced in this tool.

Cons

In some parts the usability is difficult, especially for non-IT people, who are coming from a document-oriented way of working.
