Likelihood to Recommend

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

It is easy to define structures and documentation "modules". This allows for a workgroup-oriented approach and supports SCRUM. However, in the medical device market SCRUM does not work well for documentation. Therefore the modularized approach on the requirements and testing side supports sprint development, while the depth of documentation needed for compliance may not be "ready" and can be completed later.

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.

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

The usability is excellent in most cases but lacks some intuitive functions, such as a copy to the clipboard for selected items. In fact, in an older version, a COPY button copied all selected records rather than putting it on the clipboard. The button has been renamed recently to CLONE, otherwise, my rating would be lower.
