Helix Core Review

Provides a common platform for team collaboration.

What is most valuable?

The excellent traceability of all changes made to the product and the support for collaborative work.

How has it helped my organization?

It has provided a common platform for team collaboration.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see installation and support for Git-based workflow.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for eight years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I did not encounter any issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It scales well, but installation and server management gets technically very complicated when the installation grows.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We used several other solutions, but needed to coordinate the use of version control tools.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup of a basic installation is easy. When the installation grows and new features are added, it becomes very complex.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated and compared ClearCase, Subversion, and TFS.

What other advice do I have?

Try to use a standardized installation to avoid growing complexity due to many customer specific adaptions.
