This is one of the best version control tools I have used.

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

Pros

  • One place for most recent code with history, avoid any conflict/confusion among other team/members.
  • Stream/Workflow approach to control approval process betwen all the teams, which I couldn't find in other version control tools I worked.
  • Bundle our code in a small group (called, Issues in Accurev) to differentiate between different projects.

  • Simple user interface.
  • When it works, it works.
  • Integrates well with Microsoft Visual Studios.

Cons

  • The tool allows duplicate file name, if both are present in different directories. This creates confusion if multiple people are working on the same file. It should at least produce a warning.

  • Extremely buggy.
  • Sometimes the repository gets locked for no reason.
  • Slow.

Alternatives Considered

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

  • Better team coordination.
  • Avoid confusion by having one place for all documentation and code.
  • Better project management by having different work streams.

  • 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.
