  4. ClearCase integrates well with other engineering tools and frameworks such as the Eclipse environment.
  5. The most valuable features are stability and ease of use.The most valuable feature is the automated process to package the source codes and promote development to production.
  6. I am not familiar with any issues with respect to stability, and I have never seen Team System crash.The most valuable feature is the code management, where there is sharing of code for developers and it is distributed within the organization.
  7. Scalability is great. It has absolutely met every need for us so far. We do have some concurrent development paths and we're able to flexibly assign variables. At the same time, our skeletons assemble where we want them to, so the scalability is very good.

What is Software Configuration Management?

Software Configuration Management (SCM) refers to tracking and controlling software changes. SCM tracks software updates. Software engineers will closely monitor software used by the enterprise to stay on top of revision control. SCM assists in detecting and monitoring functional software elements and configurations, tracking version selection and changes, establishing software control and implementing baselines. Software Configuration Management is also known as Software Control management.

SCM is important in IT because new software elements are constantly being added and updated across an enterprise. New operating systems, new databases, new plug-ins, patches, and so forth create an almost constant churn of configuration changes.

IT Central Station users are tasked with managing ongoing technical issues in an enterprise. Efficient implementation of Software Configuration Management helps improve productivity by establishing communication and coordination among programmers for ideal functioning of the IT team. A Software Configuration Management system manages the output and functionality of basic components including software objects, program code, test data, test output, design documents, and user manuals. The Software Configuration Management process is intended to increase clear and open communication among team members.

Benefits and advantages of Software Configuration Management allow IT Central Station professionals to reduce redundant work, effectively manage simultaneous updates, track defects with traceability, help with build management and avoid configuration-related issues.

Well-coordinated teams should deliver analytics for management and support a smooth functioning organization. Communication is vital in Software Configuration Management because system architecture and decisions affect app development and maintenance, infrastructure, security, auditing and compliance. IT Central Station IT users are looking for ease of use for the best software fit with their assets, such as ASCII or binary, and look at variables such as compatibility of file size. Vendor support is key when IT closely are evaluating software purchases and is critical during the Proof of Concept (POC) stage, as well as over lifetime of the product.
