We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are the versioning of requirements and the possibility to reuse them."
"It's web-based, so you don't have anything to install."
"It's a cloud based solution."
"The most valuable features are the baselines and links."
"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."
"I like the way this solution is structured."
"A valuable feature from my side would be the comparison corporization."
"Its flexibility and APIs are the most valuable."
"When you are not working on it every day it is not very intuitive."
"When you are in Jira or Confluence, you have some freedom in how you type in text. That's also a weakness of Confluence, however, as it opens the doors to sloppy work. In DOS Next Generation, the text is very rigorous, but it might be difficult for people who don't have the discipline. Having a way to quickly enter requirements could help. It might already be in there, but I don't know. I don't have enough experience with the tool yet."
"The whole layout of the screen could be improved, the layout is just so rigid."
"It offers a bad user experience and the usability is poor."
"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."
"If we have more than one thousand work items in one live-book then it becomes almost unusable."
"It is stable enough but if you would like to work with more requirement objects, then you will get timeouts."
"Its user interface could be more user friendly. In addition, a lot of features are missing for test management. It should have the test case ordering feature."
"The cost of maintenance is €20,000 to €30,000 ($22,000 to $33,000 USD) and there are no additional fees."
"Users can buy a three-year license for about 12,000 Euros."
"The price of this solution is very high, and it increases year after year."
"It is expensive but not for what it is. It is just the right price for what it is. Its price is also similar to other solutions."
