In the many consulting jobs that I have been doing, I have occasionally encountered companies with solid and extensive processes (necessary bureaucracy for manufacturers and factories, since they need to manage big production flows).

  • Big panorama view in relation to requirements. You can have all your artifacts in one place with total traceability.
  • MS Office templates and IBM Requisite Pro compatibility.
  • IBM ways of doing things, like customizing your variables and so on.
  • Too complex for projects or businesses that don't really need the detail. It is basically overkill.
  • If you are new to IBM Rational tools, it may be a medium learning curve. You'd also need lots of training from your people, since, as usual, this tool shouldn't be managed alone.
  • It may seem old fashion compared to JIRA and the current control tools used in IT industry.
If you are using IBM software and more importantly, if you have work with huge process flows (and lots of resources invested on it), DOORS is the way to go. On the other hand, if you have mostly an IT focused agile team or your project is not too big, I can't recommend its use.
