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. This means that you have to sign in locally with a desktop and work on it there, although it is still slow. We spoke with Siemens about this and it cannot be improved. Even with more memory and more processors, it would still be the same. This solution is not as handy as it could be, and it would benefit from improvements to the dashboards. The import feature should be improved and made more like IBM Rational DOORS because there are too many things to set up. View full review »

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 want to know the right way is to do licensing. It's not clear what that best way would be. The solution will be here for a long time, and I just think it could be more clear. View full review »

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 would be to include a better import option from the data requirement solutions. View full review »
