IBM ClearQuest

Well Suited - If your project is running in waterfall model and other IBM tools are widely used for various purposes, Clear Quest is a good tool to have. It gives you seamless capability to create defeccts and query the defects for various scenarios. If you are a project manager or a test engineer trying to create defect metrics, this tool can help immensely.Less Appropriate - In this Agile world, everyone uses Jira or some other agile tracking tool. All the agile tracking tools have already built in defect tracking capabilities and can integrate with the work very well. If your project is running on agile or don't use IBM tools that much, then Clear Quest doesn't always add value.

IBM Cloud Developer Tools

It's hard to believe that a huge company as IBM would provide a service that's only reliable for non mission critical applications, but that's the truth. IBM has shown no idea on how to hold and manage it's Cloud Foundry version. Result of this, when it fails, it fails terribly, more than 6 hours of downtime due to IBM Cloud problems, more than 1 complete day failing to update our applications due to Continuous Delivery problems, and support didn't know when the problem was solved or what the cause was.I would only recommend IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery for non mission critical applications or simple proof of concepts. Continuous delivery doesn't seem to be IBM's strength, but only a must have because all "the big ones" have it.

Cons

IBM ClearQuest

  • If you use theweb version, then it's really not good idea to use for sending emails through the tool, as it won't give you the chance to format your email, or modify the receivers list.
  • Most of the times people try to sign the WPI record instead of acknowledge it. So the error message should explain to them why they can not sign. People simply gets confused.

Most likely as it's one of the powerful tools in the organization. We needed this tool to track all the process related documentation and also to capture signatures.

It's a great platform to develop, run, test and deploy the applications easily. And it makes very easier and secure the implementation of continuous delivery process. For first time and experts also can use this service so easily. Great service provided by the IBM Cloud Continuous Service. There are more services that helps a lot to work on it. Thanks a lot.

In more than a year using the IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery tool, I haven't had any major complaints or problems. However, in the last month, IBM suffered from a couple of problems through several of its services, and for a short period of time, I couldn't deploy successfully my projects. The problem was brief and was quickly fixed.

Alternatives Considered

IBM ClearQuest

We use Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) with the latest version of our software for our clients and the IBM Rational ClearQuest/ClearCase tool set for the previous versions. Both offer customizable workflows, but Microsoft support for custom templates is lacking. Heavy customization in Team Foundation Server makes upgrading to a later version a very tedious and complex process. With TFS, you should decide if it's more important for your company to be on the latest version as often as possible or if you need to tailor the tool to your company's methodology. With ClearQuest, IBM will fully support custom implementations and upgrading to a later version works well with heavy customizations. If your organization is looking for full Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) integration, then Team Foundation Server is a better solution than IBM Rational ClearQuest + ClearCase. TFS offers full integration and workflow management with all phases of the ALM. Build, Test and Release Management are included alongside Code and Workflow management.

IBM Cloud Developer Tools

It's the best tool for deploying an application in a short amount of time. I've always used IBM Cloud Developer Tools from creation to running and testing it to deploying it. It saves a lot of time for me and provides a very good user experience.

IBM Cloud Developer Tools

  • The pricing of IBM Cloud is valuable(in some cases). I can't say it's the best, but it was enough for our needs
  • Excellent Stability
  • Customer Support need to be improved
  • Sometimes deployment can be a bit of a pain
