Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

The most valuable feature is the reporting of the CPU usage on the dashboard.At the same time, if you're working from the architect or the designing team you, it's quite easy to manage the resources online.It helped us contain critical things, like source code and several documents, which is very important to us.It is relatively easy to use and user-friendly once the setup is complete.The cataloging is a very valuable feature. For a lot of enterprises, they end up not knowing which applications do specific features. The cataloging helps with this. It's not that verbose, but it still gives you allowances to put in more detail.

The most valuable feature is the user-friendly interface.Technical support answers fairly quickly compared to others like IBM or Atlassian. They also offer quite a good knowledge base for advanced cases and how to plan it, etc. via videos that they provide. They are quite useful.

The stability of this solution can be improved.The directory designer manager is uncivil. The design manager is clearly really unstable.Of course it would be related to customer experience. The solution is not user friendly at all. It needs an expert to use it, although the reporting feature was okay.There is not enough beginner support material in the form of FAQs or simple training to help you get started.The features should be more intuitive. If I'm looking for something, its location should be easy to locate.

More IBM Rational ALM Cons »

I have inquired about pricing for this solution but have not yet heard anything, so their response time in this regard is something that should be improved.t is rather slow, so the speed of the process and consuming information should be improved. It doesn't have a nice way of viewing information. We would like to see better interfaces for consuming information.Test management can be improved. It's not so scalable. The user interface needs to split things into small projects.
