What do you think of IBM Rational Team Concert (IBM ALM)?

What is our primary use case?: Execution of the Agile software development methodology. • How has it helped my organization?: It gave us the platform to implement Agile methodology immediately. • What is most valuable?: Agile templates give us a standard methodology for every Agile project. Also, the ability to create our own object types and linkages to features/epics allows us to enhance the verification of feature readiness. • What needs improvement?: Upgrades, even minor versions, seem too labour intensive, especially with the enhanced objects, which is why the Jazz platform should be so good. • For how long have I used the solution?: One to three years.
