CA Endevor Software Change Manager Valuable Features

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 »

The biggest feature is that it protects the source and it associates the source with the executable. Endevor footprinting and ship are also big features. View full review »

The traceability and the footprint that it creates for every element and every piece of code that it is put in. Being able to track who did what and when is huge for us because auditors are going to come back, especially being a financial company, and say, "Why was this touched, and when?" You can trace it back to exactly who did anything and what it was connected to, based on the notes and all the information included with it. View full review »

What I like about Endevor personally is it can be very flexible, as far as how you use it. You can make it do nearly anything, but in really clever ways. It is very versatile. You can really customize it for your own shop pretty extensively, pretty easily. View full review »

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.

With the newer version, you can do a lot of the automation that you could not do in the past where you had to do manual stuff. Now, we are getting into automation, which makes my life a whole lot easier. View full review »
