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?

The tool as a whole is very valuable. It isn't just one or two features. The combination of requirement and test management is very good for us.

How has it helped my organization?

The biggest improvement would be in the transparency we have now. We have very complex products. We make whole systems with difficult and diverse areas such as hardware, software, mechanical and printing, etc. To get the overview of all the… more »

What needs improvement?

The one thing I would mention is the license policy is a little bit difficult. For different roles, you will need different license models. That seems a little bit difficult for us. Especially when you introduce such a complex system, you… more »

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

I have experience, from the very basic former engineering requirement, with Excel. It's not really acceptable for the complex items we have. We had another product which was not so good because of the user experience. We have chosen… more »

What other advice do I have?

We are using the on-premises deployment model. My advice to others considering implementing the solution is that you should check your requirements for such a tool and process. Everything depends on the company. Our experience was to first… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature from my side would be the comparison composition but it doesn't work every time. If you have a long document and depending on the requirements it can sometimes time out.

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.
