Overall Satisfaction with CollabNet TeamForge

CollabNet TeamForge is used by our technology department mainly to track new projects and status of current projects, to document enhancements and bug fixes for future projects and to monitor a team or a developer's progress.
CollabNet TeamForge is a reliable source for business managers and analysts to find out the status of a project including which projects are in flight, what resources are used and when a project will be completed.
  • CollabNet TeamForge has a simple user interface making entering artifacts fast and painless. This allows the developer to quickly start working on a project and spend less time on administrative tasks.
  • CollabNet TeamForge has quick and easy to use search and reporting capabilities. This saves user time when looking for projects and finding out the status of a project.
  • CollabNet TeamForge has intuitive menu design and layout with efficient hyperlink based navigation. This provides users the ability to multitask effectively working on multiple projects with minimal interruption.
  • CollabNet TeamForge Subversion is a powerful change management tool that's very easy to learn and use. It offers developers both command line and user interface functions and features.
  • I would like to see personalization for managing artifacts, that is, allowing the user to customize pages and save personalized settings and then save them as bookmarks.
  • I would like an improved subversion browser such as a graphical user interface rather than a basic file explorer.
  • I would like built in features for CollabNet TeamForge integrated with subversion so that i can associate my private code branches and code changes.
  • CollabNet TeamForge has had a positive impact on the efficiency and productivity of managing and completing projects from specifications to software enhancements and from production issues/defects to bug fixes.
  • As a developer, CollabNet TeamForge allows me to focus more on delivering projects accurately and timely while maintaining communications with the business.
  • CollabNet TeamForge Is an efficiency life-cycle management product that helps my team meet business objectives by quickly delivering quality software, documenting projects in a smart and organized way and updating project status to senior management.
  • CollabNet TeamForge Subversion meets developers needs for change management and improves overall software development process in all phases of software lifecycle.
CollabNet TeamForge is superior to Mercury mainly because it has a subversion change management tool integrated with the product. CollabNet TeamForge offers more complexity but with more flexibility for managing and tracking projects. I think
CollabNet TeamForge is more comprehensive than either Mercury and JIRA. They're all user friendly tools with short learning curves but CollabNet TeamForge is most efficient in my experience.
JIRA was recently adopted for particular applications and is currently being evaluated by various technology teams.
CollabNet TeamForge is more well-suited for technically knowledgeable users such as developers, systems analysts, QA but not for non-technical users due to the technical data used throughout the tool. CollabNet TeamForge is appropriate for most applications development. In any industry especially suited for high demand software delivery environments.
