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?

What is most valuable?

What needs improvement?

The product could be improved if the NTS solution worked more quickly, it's sometimes very slow. As a starting point, I'd like to see more requirements. An additional feature for the next release… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We purchased the product, so now we only have to pay for maintenance.

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

We previously used IBM DOORS which isn't exactly the same solution so it's difficult to compare, but for requirements management, it was better.

What other advice do I have?

For anyone interested in the product I would suggest evaluating it in real conditions, with a specific project because of the issue with requirements. I would rate this product a two out of 10.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

There were other products evaluated but I was not part of the team involved in that process.
