What is most valuable?

I like the way this solution is structured.

What needs improvement?

This solution has its limits. If we have more than one thousand work items in one live-book then it becomes almost unusable. For example, if you are trying to use a finance book then the loading times will be so long that you will time-out… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used IBM Rational DOORS, but I think that it is a bit old school. It is only usable from one perspective. DOORS is better than this solution with respect to import and export because you don't have as many problems. For example, in… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to use it only for smaller projects. I cannot think of any features that should be added, but some effort should be put into making the existing ones more usable. I would rate this… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I also evaluated codeBeamer after we had adopted this solution. I think that it may be more modern and have more straightforward use cases.

What is most valuable?

Compared to other requirements, management tools, etc., this navigates well. That's the most valuable feature. The user interface with the navigation capabilities and also the relationships and reporting tools are all good.

How has it helped my organization?

It increases communication regarding the requirements. Compared to document-based requirement management, where it's hard to know where diversions are stored, etc., it makes it easier. Also, Jama has made communication between the… more»

What needs improvement?

Test management can be improved. It's not so scalable. The user interface needs to split things into small projects.

What other advice do I have?

We use the cloud deployment model. I've found the Jama is pretty much top of line nowadays. I'm certified IBM DOORS consultant as well and compared to that, DOORS may have more functionalities but it's also far more complex. The… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated quite a lot of options. This solution seems to be the most complete product and it has the requirements management part, which is really mature. Compared to IBM, it's easier to use. Jama has the mature features, but it's still… more»

What is most valuable?

Traceability is the most valuable feature of this solution. I like that is has the capacity to manage traceability from one level of requirement to another.

What needs improvement?

The HMI is difficult to use and the user interface should be better.

What other advice do I have?

If you have a high number of requirements to manage and if there is a need to sustain these baseline of requirements for a couple of years, it is the right solution for you. However, if you have a small project, it's not mandatory. In the next release of this product I would like to see a better user interface. I would like it to have the capacity to include drawing and to produce KPIs on the… more»
