The integrity of the system is valuable, but the setup is complex, and customer service is poor
Pros and Cons
  • "It provides secure, controlled access to source management."
  • "The customer service and support team are not helpful."

What is most valuable?

The integrity of the system is valuable. It provides secure, controlled access to source management and the typical check-in and check-out functions in a typical source management product.

What needs improvement?

The solution can improve its parallel development, unlike more distributed source management systems like GIT or PVCs. It is more oriented towards single control of the source.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for approximately 30 years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable.

How are customer service and support?

The customer service and support team are not helpful and they're slow to respond. The quality is not good, and most people who developed the product don't work for them anymore. They've laid off most of their staff and tried to charge for everything on the support front. Our experience was very poor and they've almost doubled the price of the product.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is highly complex. It requires a project to design the implementation of the software. It is not a straightforward default solution.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are currently evaluating Micro Focus ChangeMan. Its features are comparable. They have support for modern distributed type processing and are supporting GIT web services, which are unavailable on CA Endevor Software Change Manager.

What other advice do I have?

I rate the solution five out of ten. The solution is good and can improve its parallel development. Interfaces to GIT, web services and integration with modern developer workbenches can be included in the next release. I advise people considering implementing this solution to look for an alternative solution if they do not have it already.

Stable, easy to use, effective for source code management in a mainframe environment

What is our primary use case?

We used Endevor for our source code management tool. We also use it for coordinating our testing that includes unit tests and system tests.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are stability and ease of use.

What needs improvement?

I would like to have better integration with other products.

It's impossible to work in parallel mode with the source. For example, we have one check for many banks and you can't change the parallel source for different projects.

We have been using CA Endevor Software Change Manager for about 20 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable solution and I haven't had any problem using it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have approximately 300 users in the organization.

How are customer service and technical support?

I do not have any experience with technical support. I have had no problems with it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We will be finishing with Endevor this year.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, I think that Endeavor is a good product and I recommend it.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
