Great tool


Robert J.

codeBeamer ALM a powerful tool

Basically, unites the whole process of software development, from conception of the idea to realization, to QA, to release, to bug fixing, etc.


Manuel M.

Good for the whole software development lifecycle with documentation

Overall I liked the product very much and it did grow very good in regards to modern UI over the time I used it. In regards of feature richness it had been very mature already when I started using it.

Basically, unites the whole process of software development, from conception of the idea to realization, to QA, to release, to bug fixing, etc.

Pros

codeBeamer ALM is extremely customisable; it covers all aspects of ALM; requirements, software architecture, computer programming, software testing, software maintenance, changes, continuous integration, project management, and release management; allows multiple teams, geographically dislocated, to seemingly work on the same project; tracks every single activity in the process; has a good potential for writing good Wiki pages; has placeholder for technical documentation; practically every tracker type item has comments, attachment, description, etc.; well established links between trackers, downstream references; customisable automation, say you can generate downstream task when system requirements change to a state; completely configurable state diagrams, etc.; excellent testing framework, test cases, test sets, test runs, etc.

Cons

As with every system, the value of it depends on how much you put into it; but IMHO codeBeamer ALM has a very high potential to give you exactly what you need from an ALM tool; say there is integration with SVN, etc.; there is a danger of overcomplicating, but that is the price of very flexible customisation; if you design your process well, you should be OK, etc.

Overall I liked the product very much and it did grow very good in regards to modern UI over the time I used it. In regards of feature richness it had been very mature already when I started using it.

Pros

Highliy flexible and customizable. You can define your own processes and lifecycles and have a huge Roles & Permissions system where you can configure anything you can think of (even better than in Jira).

Also you can document everything in the integrated

Cons

At least back in 2006-2012 (when I used it) the prices were made for bigger companies only (100+ employees) as the cheapest price was still very high.

Pros

Very flexible and powerful platform that can be adapted in a variety of ways to align to your process and practices for managing your application lifecycle. Expect to invest time and effort to configure the platform to meet your needs and expect significant return on your investment.

Over a 6 month window we rolled out codeBeamer capabilities for:
1) Requirements Management
2) Risk Management
3) Architecture and Design Management
4) Test Management
5) Defect Management
6) Scrum Team Rituals (Sprints, Stories, Tasks, ...)

codeBeamer is now our single digital system of record for the full Application Lifecycle.

Cons

It can be challenging to debug why a user is unable to execute a task given the intersection of
1) license constraints
2) project permissions
3) tracker permissions
4) field permissions
