Pros: I most like the tool's ability to review history and run detailed queries.
Another feature worth mentioning is it's API while integrating it in some other 3rd part tool.

Cons: Licensing method is annoying as it give only concurrent number of users to work on it in parallel.
I assume it is more related to budgeting but it was still slowing my work.

Overall: Helped generating statistics per division in the organization

Nice to the manage tasks...

Pros: The tool is a good solution for managing tasks, very flexible infrastructure make it easy to fit the company needs.

Cons: The concept of the concurrent connected users license is frustrating and should be changed. In addition, the updating process is awful and taking too much time (in case of success)

Pros: Highly configurable. Strong work flow. Real time dashboard. Audit history. Can attach files. Good security profile management. Scaleable, flexible, powerful

Cons: Requires config, training and support staff. Licenses are expensive

Overall: RTC is a highly configurable enterprise wide large scale tool for supporting initial engagement of ideas that can be distilled down into epics, features, stories and tasks.. Configure the level of granularity and what you want to capture at each level with highly customised forms to capture requirements and track through to build. Not so suitable for developers who find the burden of forms and multiple screens for data capture annoying.

RTC is great through initiation, planning, and testing. Also great for real time report dashboards and has preloaded a number of report types, charts, pie, bar etc for building informative dashboards.

Take care to establish initial configuration approach and data structure before creating forms and onboarding people as it is hard to correct sttucture changes. It does require a dedicated config person initially and support staff.

Deployed in IBM, Telstra, NBN to give you an idea of scale

Recommendations to other buyers: Not suitable for small or medium enterprise

Over-priced

Comments: SW is over-priced and overly complicated to use. There are many alternative vendors that offer similar tools for a much lower cost and with a more user-friendly interface.
