"Managing source code, tracking modifications, and being able to analyze evolutions of source code are the most valuable features."

More IBM Rational Synergy Pros »

Cons
"The protection needs to be improved."

More IBM Rational ClearCase Cons »

"I'd like to see more integration with respect to requirement management, though this is not possible with this Synergy solution. I know that PTC enables this feature as well as Polarion. We need to have full trustworthiness and accountability in knowing that the tool will track every modification from specification through to the source code, with Synergy this isn't possible. The solution requires additional tools like rectify, desktop system solutions, to enable trustability between requirements, from one specification to another."
