IBM Rational DOORS Room for Improvement

Michael W. Knop
Requirements Engineer at Visteon Corporation
Too numerous to enumerate. There are always wants by the DXL development community. Personally I would like to see a copy module function that optionally doesn’t include links and works on a baseline. One huge improvement would be better support for distributed teams. The Rational DOORS client is terribly slow if you are not on-site with the server. Also, a better method of exchanging data between Rational DOORS servers or better yet a synchronization method. But these will never happen because IBM is not interested in improving DOORS, it is focused on it's replacement: DOORS Next Generation (DNG). View full review »

The GUI needs improvement in the following ways: * The OLE embedding is not very user-friendly. * The whole concept of having to lock and unlock, in order to switch the edit mode, is not user-friendly. In the next release of this solution, I would like to see integration with other tools. For example, for change management, and with tools like IBM Rational ClearCase. I know that IBM has now linked ClearCase, ClearQuest, and DOORS, but we have an older version so I do not know how good the integration is. View full review »

It's difficult to set the code on the solution. The testing part needs to be improved, but they have too much legacy to move to the latest IBM versions. I do not believe there are any more plans for this product. It's now a legacy solution. They should just ensure that they keep the technical support they have in place to assist existing users.

They have recently upgraded the product. And, it is definitely more user-friendly. It was really clunky to use previously. It might not be very fancy, but it always gets the job done. I think it would be nice if there was better integration with other tools, particularly diagrammatic tools so that you can do things like enterprise architecture. View full review »
