We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"ClearCase integrates well with other engineering tools and frameworks such as the Eclipse environment."
"They have some nice features around the automation of rule checking. They have a rules engine that checks the SQL code so that you can actually do your edit checks on the validity of the SQL code. If you don't want certain tables to be able to have certain things done to them, you can have it checked for that. It's a very flexible way to kind of do an automated peer review of the SQL code to catch things before you actually try to deploy it."
"This is a very expensive product."
