Overall Satisfaction with Jama Connect

Jama Connect is being evaluated as a potential tool to do requirements verification and sell-off. For now, we will be evaluating it for one of our programs. Jama Connect has the potential to upgrade our current process to review and sell-off requirements via email to using a centralized web based tool.
  • Centralized location for coordinating requirements and test cases.
  • Ability to capture various stakeholder comments and extract real time status.
  • Ability to create relationships between various products to facilitate impact analysis.
  • Real time interface with DOORS and Cameo EA.
  • Ability to create custom metrics such as pie charts, bar graphs, etc.
  • We are still evaluating the tool for our needs. But it does look promising.
Our hope is that Jama Connect will allow our engineers to focus on the requirements technical content rather than on the process. Much time is consumed in tracking and statusing so we hope that will be a fall-out from using Jama Connect.
Given our manual process, Jama Connect is a definite improvement. So, assuming the learning curve is not steep and Jama Connect is stable, then we should see immediate improvements from the get-go.
None at this time. We use Rational DOORS for requirements management and test cases plus MS Excel for tracking/reporting status.
Yes - 

Use of MS Excel for status and bar graphs and pie charts

Use of email for requirements approval.

Given our current process, Jama Connect presents some clear improvements. Obviously, it's ability to scale to large programs will be key. At the same time, having a centralized repository for documents, comments, etc., will allow for a rich integration of products and the ability to quickly perform an impact analysis. Most importantly, Jama Connect will need to pull from other tools that are currently in use to integrate itself into the process.
