Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why.

It's a relatively simple version control system so it works great for an individual or small team (less than 10 people). But if you have a medium to large team, especially one with members distributed over a large geographic area, or one where individuals need to be able to work "offline" without access to a central server, Apache Subversion will likely not be the best choice.

Also, if you're maintaining an open-source project where outside people will be interacting with your code repository, git is probably a better choice because it's becoming the de-facto standard these days and what most developers are familiar with.

Can be [suited] for teams building solutions and manage code file versioning. Subversion for us simplifies the changes per file and code version before merging to branch for continuous integration and eventually deployment. With Apache Subversion in the process of our agile development, we can continue to automate deployment as much as possible with versioning.

Any development team would need a version control system. If your organization is using something older such as CVS, then you should really consider upgrading to SVN. However, if your organization does not have a version control system and is starting from scratch, then I would highly recommend using Git instead.

Generally speaking, distributed version control systems (DVCS) such as Git have taken over the version control market (e.g. Github), but if your organization is mostly centrally located and is not already using something like Git, SVN can still get the job done and do it well.

Subversion solves our software versioning problem by providing tools for conflict resolution when doing collaborative work on the same files and projects. We use it with TortoiseSVN and it works great for some of our projects with smaller teams. However, we have a need to make code reviews more and it is a little more difficult to do that in SVN, compared to Bitbucket and Git.

If you have multiple development environments and different resources involved; if you have more developers accessing the same files and the changes are continuous (for example if you are in a continuous delivery condition) it is certainly advisable to implement a versioning solution and SVN is a good product certainly.

I'd recommend Subversion for almost any software development effort. It is less appropriate for any project with widely geographically distributed developers. For VERY elaborate projects, a higher end commercial tool might be warranted.

I would recommend using Apache subversion for any kind of project no matter the size or type of the project. It is very well suited in scenarios where the project is being worked upon by a team, especially a large team operating over various time zones. It provides a good means of collaboration among team members, allowing them to work peacefully and time effectively. I do not recommend using apache subversion for projects that are solely documentation based because it would be an overkill. Instead you could use Google Drive for such projects.

Where multiple developers have well-defined areas of responsibility it works great! When many developers are all working in the same area of code, so changes overlap, then it is more of a challenge. But, like Git, it has pretty good merge tools to help resolve conflicts.

I would only consider not recommending Subversion if the development department adheres to what I call the "One Microsoft Way" (a play on words of Microsoft's address). Many IT departments prefer to go completely by the book on all procedures related to IT. While that is justifiable if you consider what to do if the entire programming department quit without notice, Subversion offers too many advantages to not consider seriously as a better replacement for Microsoft's standard source code repository solutions.

If the code versioning is only needed between a few developers (with not much collaboration) and company cannot afford to buy GitHub License.
