IBM Rational ALM Room for Improvement

There are a few ways to potentially improve the product although it performs as expected. Reporting can be easier to do and customize, but it is adequate. Product support could be better for new users by providing more beginner-type tutorials. While the product itself is not so complex, step-by-step instructions that help new users understand the basics will make the product easier to adopt. When we started to use the product it was a little bit of mess because we were not used to using it and implemented it poorly in some ways that would have been easy to avoid. Using the product efficiently will be better if there are step-by-step and interactive guides. It would be nice if there were some more possibilities for storing either custom or standard information like stack information, memory cards type and capacity, or other details about products that can be visualized easily in case they may need to be upgraded to solve performance issues. It was a product we decided to use for educational purposes and to provide some guidance to complete projects on time. View full review »
