There are thousands of requirements that are modified or which are reviewed; those reviews cannot be seen at one single point in time. You need to click on each individual review item to check it out. The search and replace feature within the tool itself could be improved. Not using any other third-party tools.

The solution has a very small market share in China. It's almost like a startup. The solution tends to eat up a budget. The solution needs to be marketed better in China to give it more visibility. The initial setup is complex. The manuals and UI are all in English, which makes it difficult for some end-users as it causes a language barrier. There needs to be Chinese documentation and training materials.

You should be able to combine multiple parameters in a single gadget, and you should be able to retrieve that particular value. For example, if a feature is in support, we want to understand things like how many days it has been there, how many users have searched for it, and so on, for a specific period of time. Being able to track how many days it has been in support is important, but there might be a lot of these different parameters. Having a single value generated would be helpful for tracking. During the initial setup, I did not see any documentation to assist users with the steps that are required to get started. I would like to see more, easily trackable reports. Ultimately, I would like to see real-time data, real-time reports, and real-time data analytics.

Overall, I have about 16 years of experience in Agile processes, and about 10 years of experience with ALM products. I am CSM/CSPO certified and work with Agile a lot, which has put in a good position to evaluate these products. My advice to anybody who is implementing codeBeamer is to make sure to understand what data is needed from multiple ends. You need to use the concept of data warehousing and BI reports. I find it very simple and easy to use, but there are several areas in need of improvement. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

We're a reseller and a solution partner. We generally give the clients the latest version of the solution. Often, we convert a user from IBM DOORS. If they need to replace DOORS I need to get an ALM requirement to them. I'd recommend the solution. It's not an ideal solution for small companies or internet-based companies. However, it's perfect for industrial customers. Overall, the solution is quite good and we've really liked it. I'd rate it eight out of ten.

I do not see any problem with the cost. It is reasonably priced and in accordance with the industry standards.

They're not the most expensive product on the market, but they're not the cheapest either — I'd say codeBeamer ALM is moderately priced.
