Good integration capabilities, with good stability and an easy initial set up

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for system engineering. Typically, we receive a user requirement to produce or engineer specific equipment. From there, we derive requirements, system and sub-system specifications, and also design or create a test plan with a rationale quality manager, which is in the same suite as DOS next generation. There's full coverage provided, from building requirements to testing.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's web-based, so you don't have anything to install."
  • "When you are in Jira or Confluence, you have some freedom in how you type in text. That's also a weakness of Confluence, however, as it opens the doors to sloppy work. In DOS Next Generation, the text is very rigorous, but it might be difficult for people who don't have the discipline. Having a way to quickly enter requirements could help. It might already be in there, but I don't know. I don't have enough experience with the tool yet."

What other advice do I have?

I'm selling the solution to customers, as well as installing it, and configuring it. Currently, I'm using it for a customer. We use the on-premises deployment model. We're also IBM partners. I'd recommend the solution. It's a quality product. It's not cheap, but if you want quality you have to pay for it. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

A stable product with good baselines and links features

What is our primary use case?

I am a consultant and this is one of the products that I use for my clients. They use DOORS Next Generation mainly for requirements management, in conjunction with other tools such as RTC for change management, and RQM for quality management. Together, these are all part of the software life cycle.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features are the baselines and links."
  • "It offers a bad user experience and the usability is poor."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering this solution is to adopt it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
