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
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.

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.
