Pros: It's a browser based tool and for almost every funktion a GUI or WYSIWYG is available. It includes all necessary parts for complex development project; therefore you can avoid a tool break between a classic requirement management tool such as DOORS and a test management tool. This is one advantage use codeBeamer compared to other tools on the market.

Cons: The complexity you're faced with during the first setup of a complex project. The user interface itself is easy to handle, but the working process behind the UI is not self explained. Dashboards, Reports and Trackers are loaded every time they are opened. For elements with big data this lasts quite some time.
Therefore it is not helpful for newcomers to codeBeamer that the customer support only works with a ticket system. It would be appreciated also to provide a german speaking customer support.

lots of possibilities need to be configured first, which is almost not feasible for a new user

Overall: All Informations and almost all processes needed for business in one software.

Pros: very powerful, with a multitude of functionality, not only to tracker the artefacts along the software development process, but also to collect all other types of documents, manage teams, great reporting, basically any object can be described and traced in this tool.

Cons: In some parts the usability is difficult, especially for non-IT people, who are coming from a document-oriented way of working.

Overall: Complete documentation of all artefacts along the software development process, flexible workflows, full traceability, all stakeholders in the process working in the same integrated environment

I have worked with other tools and codeBeamer has proved better than all of them.

Pros: Efficiency and traceability throughout the requirements and test management. Inclusion of tools like Jira and the bridge with DOORS gives much added value.

Pros: Tracking the requirements
Tracability between requirements

Baslining of the specifications
Ajust the workflows of each Tracker/department
Release management
SW-test reuse
Change management for the requirements/test

Cons: There are tree ways to create the authorization/user-management and this is sometimes difficult because of the roles for each project. If in our template project is create a new role we have to make the input in each prject manually.

Good usedfull tool to manage a complete product development.

Pros: This software offers a lot of functions which we use for product development.
I use it for development of automotive products. Due to the huge amount of options it is easy to customize the software for your needs.

Cons: Sometimes it is not easy to find all options in the software. The menu can be interleaved so you need some time to find the option.

The codeBeamer platform is incredibly flexible and allows endless user customization to build the AL

Pros: I do especially like the one stop solution that enables me to get applications checked from testing till release.

Cons: The look of the charts / reporting functionality is not perfectly fitting the needs of our company. I would look very much forward to a better visualisation and flexibility of the charts.

Smooth install with Validation.

Pros: The configurability of this software is outstanding. For each item, you can vary the content, the workflow and the access by status, user and role to the content. We have been able to make the tools conform to our process rather than conform our process to the tool.

Cons: The various licenses control a bewildering number of grants and denials of capabilities. Some things are a great surprise.

Overall: Control and documentation of our development process

We invested significant effort to configure codeBeamer and realized significant benefit in return!

Pros: Very flexible and powerful platform that can be adapted in a variety of ways to align to your process and practices for managing your application lifecycle. Expect to invest time and effort to configure the platform to meet your needs and expect significant return on your investment.

Over a 6 month window we rolled out codeBeamer capabilities for:
1) Requirements Management
2) Risk Management
3) Architecture and Design Management
4) Test Management
5) Defect Management
6) Scrum Team Rituals (Sprints, Stories, Tasks, ...)

codeBeamer is now our single digital system of record for the full Application Lifecycle.

Cons: It can be challenging to debug why a user is unable to execute a task given the intersection of
1) license constraints
2) project permissions
3) tracker permissions
4) field permissions

Codebeamer offers a creative and thorough environment for us to creat and manage projects and tasks.

Pros: I very much appreciate the flexibility of the Codebeamer structure. The option to group items by project or by type figures greatly into our staff's needs. The ability to sort by type of item (and task) allows our team to save time and increase productivity.

Cons: I have utilized Codebeamer for several years and have yet to stumble on a hurdle or work-staller. I think it works great - as designed.

Overall: The ability to collaborate with my team and others, working towards the completion of tasks and projects of all sizes.

Very powerful, a bit complicated

Pros: I like this for our requirements management that mates with test cases for a full requirements to test result traceability.

Cons: At times the interface seems a bit "clunky" and not as intuitive as desired. There are arrows in some spots and pull-downs in other spots. Once you figure out the interface things go smoothly

Promising ALM solution with many interesting details

Pros: * adaptability
* large scale of functionality (from requirements to implementation, to testing, releasemanagement and Support)
* very good documentation about codebeamer
* webinars from intlant
* full-text search

Cons: * too many posibilities for filtering or reporting of issues with too different features (the one you use allways needs a feature of another search functionality)
* too less posibilities for dashboards (maybe changes with 8.1)
* project management (ok its not the focus of this tool, but it would be nice)

Great ALM solution for managing large number of projects
