Great reporting features and very functional

What is our primary use case?

We use the execution records and the execution of the build for the source. I use Eclipse to build it out and tie into the execution. I'm a CRM program release manager and we are customers of IBM.

Pros and Cons

  • "Very good reporting features."
  • "Not user friendly for the layman."

What other advice do I have?

It depends on your budget. It's kind of a costly tool because it plugs into IBM Rational which is pretty expensive. It depends on the market you're actually working in. You need to do your research. I like the solution a lot, I'm kind of upset that we're moving away from it. I would rate this solution a 10 out of 10.
