What is most valuable?

* Branching * Change list * Revision graph: Has been instrumental in figuring out confusing merging issues and determining where the issue occurred * The ability to add additional custom tools into the product to extend its capability.

How has it helped my organization?

Perforce has given us the capability to manage our deployments on different environments. We lacked a build and deployment tool to do this for us. Thanks to the revision graph feature, we are able to track a release from one environment... more»

What do you think of Helix Core?

Valuable Features We moved all our collaborative storage into Perforce servers. It fits our types of assets (big size, mostly binaries). Perforce is very fast, even for very huge assets. • Room for Improvement The branching strategy of helix is still too technical to handle for a non-technical user, like a graphic artist. The concept of workspace is hard to acquire at first. Users naturally would like it to be more transparent to configure. Desynchronization was one of our most frequent issues. • Stability Issues There have not been many stability issues. Many of the instabilities came from our own infrastructure. • Scalability Issues There are scalability issues when there is too much traffic, such as when there are extremely huge amount of calls by APIs.

What do you think of Helix Core?

Valuable Features The code comparison functionality and the command line options for automation are valuable features. It gives a nice pictorial view of different file versions. It is easy to manage/merge issues. The command line gives options for those who are willing to integrate it with the automation tools. • Room for Improvement The offline versioning needs to be improved. The auto-sensing features of local branch changes to remote, once it comes online. • Use of Solution I have used this product for three years. • Stability Issues I have not encountered any stability issues. • Scalability Issues I have not encountered any scalability issues. • Customer Service and Technical Support The technical support is good. • Previous Solutions I have not...
