The visual ability to see potential downstream impacts to code changes is a value add in helping our developers identify and understand the impact associated with their change. Utilization of the deploy feature in ISPW has also been a key functionality. View full review »

Support for Development Teams on Mainframe at a insurance company with 5,001-10,000 employees
* The plugin ISPW integrated into Eclipse is a really valuable functionality for developers who already use it. It helps to have quick access to the components, to see versions, life cycle, and to do generation and deployment in the environments. * ISPW deployment can be interfaced using API to "XL Release" product (XebiaLabs). In the months coming, we are going to implement this functionality in our DevOps project. View full review »

NetMESarch67 says in a Visual Studio Team System review
.Net and MES Architect at a manufacturing company with 1,001-5,000 employees
What I like about this solution is that you have Source control that enables you to organize and track the production so that you know where you are in the development phase and so on. You can also make some continuous integration with it, so it is a complete solution with a complete set of features in one box. We don't even use all the features. View full review »
IT Specialist at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
While all of the features are valuable, we use a lot of the UDPs. They normally link to all of the purchases that are being used in a project. They've got a lot of processes that come planned as part of the application, but with the UDPs, you can scale it, or build your own scripts and deployment mechanisms. It's really scalable from a functionality point of view. If there's an issue with functionality out of the box, then you can take care of that via the UDP processes. The interface is very user-friendly. View full review »

Sr. Systems Engineers at a healthcare company with 10,001+ employees
I think the most valuable features are the automatic building from the source code to the executable, and the way Endevor migrates the executables through the software lifecycle. I'm looking at it at more from a company perspective, from Aetna's perspective, that's the big benefit there. And as far as for me, because I'm an Endevor administrator, I actually have to use Endevor to administer Endevor, so I use it almost in the way our customers use it. It's a cool product. Very robust, very solid. View full review »
Technical Senior Support Specialist at a healthcare company with 10,001+ employees
It standardizes the processing of all the development. Everything gets produced in a constant and consistent manner. The flexibility, because I know a lot of the competition pigeonholes you into definitions and character limitations, and Endevor is wide open. You can define it as broadly or as narrowly as you want.
