Overall Satisfaction with MKS Integrity

PTC (MKS) Integrity is used as our Configuration/Change Management tool by our program. The problems it is addressing are: having data in one location for access by all team members; helping in the management of workflow processes involving change processes, construction, logistics, software version tracking, document version tracking.
  • PTC (MKS) Integrity is a great for adapting your business processes to a tool.
  • The dashboard and reporting tools are very helpful.
  • Importing data is not difficult
  • Development of types and fields are not difficult.
  • The workflow view for each record type is very helpful when training new users.
  • The reporting tool could be easier to edit when it comes selecting how output is viewed.
  • Faster access to information
  • Easier to see where items are in the process
  • Information is organized by team and by process
We evaluated IBM's offering and CMstat. IBM's offering is "klugy", we needed Rhapsody, ClearQuest and ClearCase to get all the components to answer our requirements. And it's very costly. CMstat offered a good change managment solution, but was lacking in version control features. The interface was antiquated.
We continue to grow our use of PTC (MKS) Integrity and our customers are now interested in the product.
1. Know the requirements for each team that will access the tool.
2. Have the tool representative talk to how each requirement can be addressed.
3. What other third part tools can PTC "talk to" (data transfer requirements)?
4. How can we transfer info (data, documents) to third party vendors or partners?
