We're a solution provider, so we don't directly use this product. We came across this product and have deployed it for our end client. We are a deployment and development partner for various clients in the automotive industry. We have a specific partnership with the vendor in Germany. We are not directly related to Polarion. We're a service provider for their vendor. We are using the latest version of the solution. I'd recommend this product to other companies, of course, depending on their requirements. Overall, I would rate it at an eight out of ten.

It's been the only ALM tool that I have used. As far as capabilities and learning the system, I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

If you're a beginner to Life Cycle Requirements Engineering in general, I'd recommend that you familiarize yourself with the basics of requirement engineering in order to gain independence of the tool itself. Eventually, when you start using Polarion, start from the very beginning. Even though the tutorials are out-of-date, they are still helpful. We also used our vendors as our trainers and teachers. We booked them for three or four days to get a proper introduction to Polarion. Starting off with an expert is a really good idea, it will cost you, but it will save you so much time. One expert instructor can teach more than 20 workers at once, saving you hours or even weeks. I would rate Polarion really quite high. We were happy with it, and nowadays, without this type of tool, it's not possible to develop medical devices independently of software or hardware. I would give Polarion a rating of nine out of 10.

I would rate it a five out of ten. I would like to see better integration and better extensivity of tasks. The costs are not proportionate to the features it offers.

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to use less than one thousand work items in one LiveDoc. Otherwise, their experience may be poor. I would rate this solution a five out of ten.

The license model is okay for large companies but would be quite expensive for smaller enterprises.

It's a pretty expensive solution. It's one of the most expensive solutions out there.
