What needs improvement?

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.

What is most valuable?

With the newer version, you can do a lot of the automation that you could not do in the past where you had to do manual stuff. Now, we are getting into automation, which makes my life a whole lot easier.

How has it helped my organization?

It helps us control what changes we are putting into production. From an audit perspective, just making sure everything is all in one place.

What needs improvement?

It is interesting because we are just starting to employ some of the new features. We just put a new version in last weekend. I would like to see more of automation pieces. I think that is going to be where we need to go to make things faster... more»
