Application Requirements Management
October 2022
Find out what your peers are saying about Siemens, IBM, Atlassian and others in Application Requirements Management. Updated: October 2022.
653,584 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. You can add a lot of documents and the volume can be increased. We have 20 users. It has not really been adopted by the end users in our company, but this is not because of Polarion. This is related to the processes used in the company.

How are customer service and support?

Technical support provided by the vendor in France was very good.

How was the initial setup?

The technical setup was quite easy, but the process for setting up the required templates was complex. It took one day for us to deploy it.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is expensive but not for what it is. It is just the right price for what it is. Its price is also similar to other solutions. 

What other advice do I have?

Polarion should not be used for project management. It should be used for feasibility and requirement management. I would recommend to use it first to understand the features and then improve it. We wanted to improve and adapt it to our new requirements, but we never finished doing that. So, we are not able to release. It is a little bit hard to understand the features. That's why I am recommending to use it first. 

I would rate Polarion Requirements an eight out of ten. It is quite a good solution.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Powerful, configurable, solid performance, and top class technical support
Pros and Cons
  • "I would say there is value in how powerful, configurable, and user-friendly it is."
  • "One thing to consider is increased flexibility in terms of workflow configuration."

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to track the requirements, user stories, software solution designs, and deliveries for our team-centered projects.

What is most valuable?

I would say there is value in how powerful, configurable, and user-friendly it is. A variety of file types can be managed and it is easy to report.

What needs improvement?

One thing to consider is increased flexibility in terms of workflow configuration.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Polarion Requirements for the past year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is very solid and high performing.

How are customer service and support?

My experience with technical support is very responsive. I would say that from a general perspective if I were to compare Siemens to a Dassault system, the previous PLM providers that we have been working with in the past, the production support, and all of the teams that manage the productions are much more reactive. They are attentive to the impact that their software may have on production. If for any reason there is a problem, they immediately need to react and come up with action plans because they know that the businesses are running on their tools. I would say, top class.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was a little more complex than expected.

What other advice do I have?

It depends on how deep they want to go into that mechanism. They really need to commit to using the tool for all of their requirements gathering. What you can do, if you absolutely must do some of the things outside the tool, is use the link field and put the hyperlink to something else outside the tool, which is feasible. But if they do that, they need to pay attention that people will move out of the software to receive the rest of their information elsewhere. It has advantages and drawbacks. I would rate Polarion Requirements a nine out of ten.
