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

If you are familiar with IBM Rational Suite products, RequisitePro will add up due to the synergy between other components. Beyond that, if your business is not structured to an adequate development methodology or lacks the degree of maturity or necessary resources, probably RequisitePro does not add much value. If you work with developers in the requirements analysis, they probably prefer to use an SVN repository.

Learning Curve is there, plus there performance can be an issue. It is best to understand where the server is located in relation to the team. Creation of new documents and mapping the requirements into ReqPro from Office can be a challenge to learn. Best to get help to do the initial document setup

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

Please keep in mind that this all has to do with you you customize the user interface. It becomes very easy to house all of your requirements, but it may and can make life difficult for you if you do not think ahead of how you want the app to work and house your data

IBM has good support and knowledge base. With the wealth of information on their site and the support desk, we were able to quickly resolve issues. It is smart to build up a COE and a group that manages the software otherwise it is quick to be able to lose the knowledge as team members are assigned different duties

codeBeamer is by far better.

IBM Rational RequisitePro

IBM Doors could be better at document management for a higher price. If you need more complex traceabilily, Doors is the way to go. If you need less, free and simple management, a common SVN is ok for you.
