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

KCM GRC Platform

KnowBe4 KCM GRC Platform is well suited for a company that knows what they're doing compliance wise and needs to save time doing it. It won't be something you can spend a few hours on and then put on autopilot. It was made to create a rhythm within your own team, and you'll need to have the buy-in. It's useful for IT and Legal teams that already have a vendor risk management process, but want to have a better handle on it. Giving an outside auditor read-only access to a scope is also a huge time saver.

KCM GRC Platform

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.

KCM GRC Platform

  • Vendor management has a few kinks to work out. We want to be able to do internal questionnaires for vendors as a compliance checklist before we sign off on a contract. Nothing in the works yet, but there are a few workarounds.
  • The navigation between different tasks in scope is clunky, and it's easy to lose your place, and it forces you back to the main page of the scope to retrace your steps.

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

Support from KnowBe4 KCM GRC Platform is always great. It's always in-house localized support, with excellent response times, and dedicated Customer Success Managers to answer the bulk of your questions or take your suggestions and make them a feature request. They will also reach out at least quarterly and do health checks to make sure you're using the platform to the best of your ability.

Alternatives Considered

codeBeamer ALM

codeBeamer is by far better.

KCM GRC Platform

Quantivate and Fusion were the other two options we checked out. The quantity was high, and a good bit more expensive, but it was the best performing with its platform. They also had more modules that each cost extra to add to your subscription. KnowBe4 KCM GRC Platform was all-in-one and a little less mature, but the better buy. Fusion was hard to follow in the demo, and I was not overly impressed. I may have made my decision early enough in the demo to not pay much more attention to it.

Return on Investment

codeBeamer ALM

  • Customer tracking.
  • Process tracking.
  • Workflow framework.
  • Can be overhead.
Robert Jurjevic | TrustRadius Reviewer

KCM GRC Platform

  • Just having the capacity to do things the right way, and formally, has driven some of our compliance efforts.
  • Due to licensing limitations, we likely overspent on seats to the platform that we didn't need but also didn't want to miss out on.
