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

Serena RM is well suited for mid to large size companies, with mature processes in place, that want to standardize project methodologies across the IT department, and want to give users a collaborative role in the requirements and testing process. It is especially powerful when used with Serena CM, integrating change management and the code repository with the full project life cycle. It is not as well suited for smaller organizations, or organizations that do not have mature processes in place (unless they are using RM as the tool to strengthen processes). RM would be burdensome and restrictive in that scenario. Serena products are well suited for environments that are under heavy regulatory restrictions due to the roles based workflow and traceability that can be put in place

  • Traceability - will allow you to see end to end how requirements are related to each other, to project artifacts, how the requirement was tested, and the implementation code (when using with Serena CM).
  • Baselines - these are snapshots in time which are typically used at project phases and milestones. They allow you to see all aspects of a project from requirements to testing and how it has progressed or changed over time.
  • Test Management - test steps, execution, defect management are all included in RM, providing a powerful SDLC management 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.

  • The very complexity of the product, which makes it powerful and flexible, provides easy opportunities to misuse it and make a mess of things. Its very important to set up roles, life-cycle workflows, and methodologies very thoughtfully during implementation, otherwise it can easily become ineffective and even burdensome to the process.

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
