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

RSA Archer

RSA Archer is fantastic at cataloguing, personalizing assessments, raw reporting, and capacity to add custom fields. It is a little clunky around adding contextual information to notifications, peeking into data before attempting to load pages, quick navigation or determining linked (or sub-linked) relationships. These are all concerns that can either be worked around with an appropriate data scheme or with careful administration of the sub-routines.

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.

RSA Archer

  • They release time to time updates, which causes issues in the GUI. However, one has to be careful while installing the update.
  • There is no open and free academy to learn more about the tool.
  • One cannot stay to a particular product version, they have to move to the next version to keep up with the changes.

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

Good tool to get the information communicated, approval workflow, and easy to add new findings/questionnaires. Seems to be compatible with different browsers and little downtime. Only request for improvement is to add an export feature with fewer clicks. Maybe batch export.

Our RSA Archer team is dedicated to finding solutions for our organization. They haven't mentioned any issues with receiving support with deployment or bug fixes, and generally the platform is very dependable. They are always very excited about delivering a version upgrade and presenting any new features that provide more dashboards or chart types.

RSA Archer

It has been roughly 5 years since I have seen Securevue, so a lot can change, but to me it felt like several products were purchased and an attempt was made to piece them all together into a single solution (and I believe that may have been true). It also required agents on endpoints which did not fit the model I believed customers were looking for. MetricStream appeared to be difficult to install as it took their own engineers some time to get it installed in my lab environment. I did not think their web interface was as intuitive as RSA Archer. Customization to the platform was possible to some degree, but required a lot more work and technical skills than required by Archer. I did like the landing page for MetricStream which called out the important action items for the current user, but Archer v6.X now has this feature.

Return on Investment

codeBeamer ALM

  • Customer tracking.
  • Process tracking.
  • Workflow framework.
  • Can be overhead.

RSA Archer

  • I feel like this tool's limits our ability to have updated policies and procedures. It seems like the application is so archaic that we have to scale our policies down so they will fit within the system. This is not an optimal way to run an IT organization.
  • It has allowed us to standardize all vendor contact info and risk policies in one place. That is really the only value we are getting from the application.
  • It also seems to have poor integration options with other apps. The data in RSA Archer should be sent to tons of other systems as it is important but this seems overly complex and limited options for actually achieving this.
