Regarding codeBeamer ALM, I have the SaaS version, I have deployed it on the cloud and I have used the on-premise version as well for my various clients. Our clients' primary use case was for automotive embedded systems, wherein they required ISO 26262 certification. They also use it as a stronger tool to manage the whole of… more »

Good metrics and lifecycle connectivity, but better setup documentation and reporting is needed

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and as a consultant, I have evaluated codeBeamer ALM for some of our clients. One of our clients is using this solution to work on medical products, and we have other clients such as telecoms who provide services.

Pros and Cons

  • "You can track the metrics in the Agile dashboard very easily."
  • "I would like to see more, easily trackable reports."

What other advice do I have?

Overall, I have about 16 years of experience in Agile processes, and about 10 years of experience with ALM products. I am CSM/CSPO certified and work with Agile a lot, which has put in a good position to evaluate these products. My advice to anybody who is implementing codeBeamer is to make sure to understand what data is needed from multiple ends. You need to use the concept of data warehousing and BI reports. I find it very simple and easy to use, but there are several areas in need of improvement. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

Covers a client's requirements well, excellent for replacing IBM DOORS and perfect for the manufacturing industry

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution easily replaces IBM DOORS, which no longer offers maintenance in China."
  • "The solution has a very small market share in China. It's almost like a startup."

What other advice do I have?

We're a reseller and a solution partner. We generally give the clients the latest version of the solution. Often, we convert a user from IBM DOORS. If they need to replace DOORS I need to get an ALM requirement to them. I'd recommend the solution. It's not an ideal solution for small companies or internet-based companies. However, it's perfect for industrial customers. Overall, the solution is quite good and we've really liked it. I'd rate it eight out of ten.
