Overall Satisfaction with AccuRev

It is used for version control across several projects in my organization.
  • Creation of streams & workspaces are easy.
  • Easy integration with other bug tracking or tasking tools like JIRA.
  • File comparison and history is possible.
  • Project creation and setup is easy.
  • Very hard or confusing process when compared to other version control tools like TFS /Git etc.
  • More features would be definitely helpful. The UI seems a little outdated when compared to many modern tools
  • Very slow tool.
  • We will be moving away from Accurev as it's not meeting our needs.
  • We have been using it for many years and it has supported our needs well for these years . But since our org is growing and the projects getting more complex and team size is increasing, this tool is not working out for us.
  • It's a little simpler to understand than Git but still the slowness of the tool overall is an issue.
In my view, accurev ranks very low compared to other tools I have used. Microsoft TFS is the best in the industry as of today as it's a complete ALM solution. It does code version, bug tracking, user story documentation, and has easy integration with other external tools supporting many languages. So I would definitely recommend TFS to anyone.
Very slow and not intuitive; it would be my last choice for version control systems.The UI is a little confusing at times and seems a little outdated. It needs a lot of improvement. It is suited for small projects and fewer number of projects. But if there are huge projects and many projects to be maintained in a portfolio, its a little hard to manage.
