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

MetricStream M7

MetricStream is well suited for when you need to pull a report into Excel for further analysis.It is not good for when information needs to be entered as this is all done manually by analysts and managers. If we can implement a way to take parts of uploaded documents and have the system automatically enter the information in the designated fields in MetricStream, it would cut out lots of manual work for our department.

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.
Robert Jurjevic | TrustRadius Reviewer

MetricStream M7

  • Speed/efficiency.
  • Missing functionality: Uploading documents (Excel sheets) into MetricStream and being able to pull information from that form into the program.
  • Improve number of outages and time that it is out for.

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

Archer is more risk-management-friendly in that it has a better interface and more room to conduct risk-related tasks and pull reports.
