The most valuable features are stability and ease of use.
The most valuable feature is the automated process to package the source codes and promote development to production.
One of the features that the developers like is that they can retrieve what they need with the tool. They don't have to go through some process or request something be done by another team. They can get the programs they need, compile them, retrieve the JCL and alter the JCL if they need to, and put these programs wherever they need to go for their testing.
Scalability is great. It has absolutely met every need for us so far. We do have some concurrent development paths and we're able to flexibly assign variables. At the same time, our skeletons assemble where we want them to, so the scalability is very good.
The solution is scalable, stable and has allowed us to upgrade our frameworks.
Microsoft makes great products. They are quite robust.
Using this solution, we were able to implement a full process for all of our lifecycles.
The ability to give our teams functionality from a control perspective, allowing them to decide how they want to implement the tool, is valuable.
It can be adapted to any process flow and easily be integrated with other in-house tools using the ClearQuest API.
The combination of a highly flexible state machine together with a platform independent API enables possibilities to automate many steps that in many systems are manual.
