I like the way this solution is structured.The biggest improvement would be in the transparency we have now. We have very complex products. We make whole systems with difficult and diverse areas such as hardware, software, mechanical and printing, etc. To get the overview of all the requirements into a system, at that sizing, is the main advantage we have in the organization now.

Cons
When you are not working on it every day it is not very intuitive.I have come to the conclusion that if you are considering migrating from DOORS to DNG, don't! Instead of spending 100's to 1000's of hours doing migrations, invest those hours in a DXL programmer to make DOORS do what it isn't doing for you now.Be very careful how you load your DNG server.

If we have more than one thousand work items in one live-book then it becomes almost unusable.The one thing I would mention is the license policy is a little bit difficult. For different roles, you will need different license models. That seems a little bit difficult for us. Especially when you introduce such a complex system, you want to know the right way is to do licensing. It's not clear what that best way would be. The solution will be here for a long time, and I just think it could be more clear.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost of maintenance is €20,000 to €30,000 ($22,000 to $33,000 USD) and there are no additional fees.You are going to need a beefy server and a fat network pipe to it in order to make DNG and its companion tools work well for users.
