What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of IBM Rational ClearCase is not easy.

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

I have previously used Bitbucket which was a better solution than IBM Rational ClearCase.Additionally, I have used Harvest and it is an older solution but easier to use, efficient, and simple. 

How was the initial setup?

IBM Rational ClearCase was difficult to do the proof of concept. It took us approximately 20 steps to develop it at the bank branch. In other solutions, such as Harvest, I only need to click the mouse once. The whole implementation was difficult.

What other advice do I have?

I did not find this solution to be very good. It is not the worse solution but there are others available.

I rate IBM Rational ClearCase a five out of ten.
