Very slow and not intuitive; it would be my last choice for version control systems.The UI is a little confusing at times and seems a little outdated. It needs a lot of improvement. It is suited for small projects and fewer number of projects. But if there are huge projects and many projects to be maintained in a portfolio, its a little hard to manage.

IBM Rational ClearCase

IBM Rational ClearCase might be better suited for a smaller / simpler code base. Larger code bases really slow it down... but then again there are better alternatives out there for source control

Alternatives Considered

In my view, accurev ranks very low compared to other tools I have used. Microsoft TFS is the best in the industry as of today as it's a complete ALM solution. It does code version, bug tracking, user story documentation, and has easy integration with other external tools supporting many languages. So I would definitely recommend TFS to anyone.

GIT Stash is superior to IBM Rational ClearCase in many ways. Bundled with SourceTree, the UI is far more modernized and updated than IBM Rational ClearCase. Being able to visually see the individual branches that are created within the repository is much more straightforward than the versioning method of ClearCase. GIT also seems to be a lot faster when it comes to checking in/out code and creating the repository.

Return on Investment

  • We will be moving away from Accurev as it's not meeting our needs.
  • We have been using it for many years and it has supported our needs well for these years . But since our org is growing and the projects getting more complex and team size is increasing, this tool is not working out for us.
  • It's a little simpler to understand than GIT but still the slowness of the tool overall is an issue.

  • Managed code versioning for many years.
  • Only one person can edit code at a time - slows processing down.
  • IBM is an expensive product to support.
