IBM Rational ALM Scalability

We never really needed to scale the usage a lot, but we never had an issue adding users or projects, so scalability is good. View full review »

The tool is quite scalable, from the deployment side or be it be from the tool functionality side. If you are a part of the development teams it helps you. But I'll say there is room for improvement that could help us. For example, in regards to DOORS and Rational Team Concert, the development with respect to the Java script is limited, while for Java, the capacity is quite huge. It's scalable but you need a lot of background knowledge if you want to scale the solution. In my company, we have four or five locations in total, so all together we have somewhere around 500, 600 users. The deployment and maintenance only require two to three people but they don't work on it full time. We did have plans to increase usage in the past. Recently, we have had some struggles with our events. We had some problems with Rhapsody Design Manager. It took me six months to get it stable and I still struggle with it. I don't think that we'd increase the userbase anytime in the future. View full review »

We are using the Community Edition rather than the Enterprise version, just to create PoCs, pipelines, and showcase them to the business. We have not tried to scale beyond this. We have between 30 and 40 architects who are using it, and we are all involved in creating new solutions and new architectures. View full review »

Scalability is not really an issue for us because we don't have a lot of users. The license is expensive. We have a limited number of concurrent users. We haven't tested the scalability. With our limited number of users, the performance is okay, the availability is okay. View full review »
