What is most valuable?

Rational ClearCase is a tool for software configuration management (SCM). Once it hit the market in early 1990s, it was a revolutionary tool. One of the most remarkable features were dynamic views, which enabled viewing different versions of a product without downloading the files to the developer's computer. Since then, ClearCase powers software development in... more»

What needs improvement?

It is a Java application and runs its own SSH server, and that means that there is a certain overhead on your system. Besides that, Stash really does what it should do.

How has it helped my organization?

The tool is central to our workflow. It does the following: * Drives continuous delivery and integration * Delivers large file sets to remote sites faster than anything else * Recalls history reliably

What needs improvement?

* Perforce does not appear to have an enterprise scale software test environment. We sometimes serve as their software QA department. * The database engine is very fast, but has proven difficult for them to debug. Their attempts to work... more»
