Beyond Compare

BeyondCompare is a superb tool not only for developers but also for power users of any kind. It works very well across operating systems for comparing all kinds of files and folders, especially code and media files.I usually throw files with thousands (4000+) of lines or folders with thousands (3000+) to compare and the program will do it quickly.I really don't think there is a scenario where BC is not the right tool for the task.

One scenario I believe HP Agile Manager is well suited is for a team of 5 or more developers who are releasing new features or addressing defects. Another scenario where it is beneficial is for teams of QA Automation engineers, where again, the objectives are clear. A scenario where I believe it would be less appropriate is for operations-type teams where objectives are not always clear cut, and the roles must be more reactive.

Pros

Beyond Compare

  • Compare two files or directories and easily see what's the same or different between the two sources.
  • Synchronize changes between two files or directories.
  • Be able to ignore insignificant differences such as code comments, minor timestamp differences, or certain file types, such as temporary files.

  • Agile manager is particularly good for planning out sprints in an Agile methodology
  • The Task Board in AGM gives clear swim-lanes to indicate progress/status, or to gauge that of another team member.
  • The Dash Board gives visibility to team members capacity and the overall team burn down.

Cons

Beyond Compare

  • There are several operations that one can do with BeyondCompare, but the icons for them are all on one line, so you have to scroll (using a> on the sides of the screen) to see the next six options. It would be nicer if one could have them in a grid and move them around so they're in the order you want.
  • I'm not a big fan of the "Auto-saved" sessions feature because I don't generally keep coming back to the same files. I'm all over the network looking at configuration files and those that I place temporarily on my desktop. At least they created a relatively simple right-click, clear contents option so I can get rid of the session's clutter.
  • I would especially like to have an ability to have BeyondCompare open on one monitor and have it interact with content in a remote desktop session that is open on a second monitor, like being able to drag and drop content from the RDP session to BeyondCompare would be amazing.

  • Removing stories from a Sprint results in them being difficult to find later.
  • Editing story details is slightly cumbersome.
  • It's somewhat unclear how capacity fills up for stories split from prior sprints.

Usability

Again, given the intuitive nature of this program, there is barely any learning curve needed. It is simple, reliable, accurate, and just one of those tools you always have with you and rarely think about until you don't have it. Then it is a case of OMG what was I thinking? This program is just very easy to use, and that makes it more valuable to me than some of my other software tools that cost significantly more.

Alternatives Considered

Beyond Compare

These are free and opensource applications. They do not have most of the features that BeyondCompare has. Even though they are free to use, the reasonable cost of BeyondCompare makes using it over these competitors a no brainer.

HP Agile Manager is beefy enough to work for bigger teams. In this way it matches closely to what is offered with Rally. One area it comes up short when compared to Rally is the apparent lack of a test management capability, where requirements can be entered then mapped to test cases. Agile Manager has some of the agile feel offered by Trello and Waffle but the added functionality that makes it more valuable for bigger teams.

Return on Investment

Beyond Compare

  • The great benefit of this software is immediate as it allows users to spend a fraction of the time they used to for source code compare. The compare is quicker and exact (no human looking at files or comparing files one by one with possibility of missing one).
  • In this case, if the person validating differences between files and folders is not using a compare software, the time saved will probably be around 80% minimum.
  • Used by change management groups, this can also raise the security of the changes as the person promoting the change can validate in details what modification a specific change brings to a production application.

  • It has allowed us to plan our Sprint work more effectively
  • It has made it more clear how to accurately estimate certain problems
  • It has given clarity over time as to the skill and work speed of team members
