Pros
It is very customizable and easy to scale.This product can help improve how your organization proceeds through solution development.I really like the customization that can be done using the DOORS Extension Language (DXL).The program is very stable.The solution is stable.The most valuable feature for me is the ability to enter data into one table, or context, and link it across modules.It has the features of: traceability, configuration management, and user access.Traceability on requirements for a huge project in an organization is a big gain.

It's web-based, so you don't have anything to install.The most valuable features are the versioning of requirements and the possibility to reuse them.The "Link by Attribute" feature is useful for making links without needing to use the web interface manually.

Cons
The interface is not very user-friendly and has not evolved in a long time.IBM should integrate some solutions they already own toenhance the utility of the product further. Specifically import and export to Office products is more difficult than it needs to be.There are problems with communicating between DOORS and Microsoft Office.The kind of dashboard is not very convenient.It's difficult to set the code on the solution.It would have been ok ten years ago, but we are used to having better tools now.It used to be very clunky.I would like to see them improve in agile management the Scrum/Kanban Board to work with overseas team members.

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.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. There are limits to the number of artifacts a server can handle.As a web tool, DNG can be difficult to use if the server is loaded or your network connection to it is saturated.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Licensing fees are billed annually and there is no support included with what I pay.Pricing can vary depending on the size of the organization and how contracts are negotiated.

Users can buy a three-year license for about 12,000 Euros.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.
