Likelihood to Recommend

codeBeamer ALM

In my opinion codeBeamer is well suited for any activity where detailed tracking is needed with teams involved.It can be less suited for small projects which do not last long, or are not continuous, etc

Very good tool for requirements management like baselining the requirements, traceability across the lifecyle, coverage matrixes, working on multiple version of requirement at a time, etc. But not up to the mark for requirement development activities like developing interactive wireframes, data modeling, BPMN, or Use case modeling. Also it does not support offline work.

  • All the discussion around business requirements, breaking it into functional requirements, capturing business expectations and steps to reproduce the acceptance criteria are captured on RDNG.
  • The fact that RDNG is web-based and cloud-based is already a major improvement over legacy DOORS. I find the user interface more intuitive.
  • There is a strong online community for help and support. IBM has been fairly responsive to our problem reports.
  • Using custom reports created with Rational Publishing Engine, we have been able to produce well-formatted documents that are deliverable to our client with very little manual formatting to do.

Cons

codeBeamer ALM

  • Search.
  • Metric calculation.
  • Would be nice that cB is a source of truth, i.e., that say SVN commit is done only from cB; know this is difficult to achieve.

IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation

  • Transform the artifact in HTML in form template
  • Improve the import feature, because often it crashes the procedure
  • Improve the managing of the folder structure

Sometimes info in codeBeamer can be lost, in principle, if not well organized by the user, info can never be found, or can be forgotten about, etc

Alternatives Considered

codeBeamer ALM

codeBeamer is by far better.
Robert Jurjevic | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation

It's well integrated with IBM products so it provides better coverage across the lifecycle with first class integration. Other producst are stand alone with limited integration with ALM tools.
